The Unicoi County Animal Shelter operates to provide a safe haven for the animals of Unicoi County. We operate as an animal control and adoption center. All of our pets are loved and given the best care possible. We depend on the support of volunteers, adopters, and rescues to keep saving lives. We are a small shelter, have a very small staff, and put our hearts and souls into our animals. Come visit with us!
