About Us

Who We Are

Cheatham County Animal Control is a County Government facility that receives nearly 2200 animals a year with room to house only 50 at a time. Only four staff members clean, feed, treat, bathe, intake, answer phone, and make onsite calls for: at large, cruelty, neglect, and all other issues. The staff also works to save every animal possible with limited resources. Cheatham County is over 360 square miles and is filled with unwanted animals. Our county compliance on vaccinations, spay/neuter, and safety of animals is low. We are leading our staff and our community toward a culture change - which will take time...time our animals do not always have on their side. We rely on Rescues, Adopters, Donations and Education to do the very best we can to care for the many many animals we receive daily. Your help is needed and appreciated.

Working toward making Cheatham County an Animal Friendly County!
The adoption fee covers the animals (Dogs/Cats) spay/neuter, rabies shot and all vaccinations while they are in our custody.

If you would like to volunteer, call or come in and fill out an application and find out what you can do to help these animals.
