About Us

Who We Are

Wilson County Animal Enforcement is a division of the Wilson County Office of the Sheriff. Sheriff Calvin L. Woodard Jr. and his Office has taken the responsibility for the Wilson County Animal Enforcement and have placed Lieutenant Todd O'Neal as Director of Animal Enforcement.Animal Enforcement works hand in hand with local rescue groups to find homes for the animals and increasing exposure of adoptable animals to the public.

Animal Enforcement is committed to protecting our citizens from stray, unvaccinated and dangerous animals as well as protecting animals from conditions harmful to their well being which includes improper tethering, injuries and illnesses or any inhumane treatment.

We house a large number of animals and due to limited space and more animals coming in daily, we are forced to euthanize a large number of these animals. Strays picked up are held for at least 72  working hours. All efforts are being made to house adopted animals for as long as possible but the number entering the shelter make this effort difficult. To control the pet overpopulation, all animals adopted from the shelter are spayed or neutered.

This website is kept up to date and the photographs are updated weekly. We are using this website to find loving homes for as many animals as possible. Unfortunately space and time are limited. To keep as many as possible from being euthanized, please contact us immediately if you see an animal that you are interested in . Call or visit the animal shelter for availability of any animals that you see posted on this website.

Thank you,

Sheriff Calvin L. Woodard,Jr.
