News

We always have plenty of dogs in need of good homes. Please come by to see what we have to offer! We have extended our hours so we are open later most weekdays...see details below! If you are missing a dog or want to inquire about an available dog stop in a see us or give us a call! We are also rescue friendly and more than willing to work with any legitimate rescue organization. However, rescues must coordinate with one of our rescue coordinators in order to pull from our shelter. If you are 501c3 our current pull fee is $10 with a copy of your current 501c3 in our files.

Who We Are

We function as animal control for the city of Lewisburg and Marshall County. We strive to find homes for the dogs that happen to end up here, but our main focus is stray and abandoned animal control. We are a dog only facility and at the current time do not accept or do calls on cats. We have one county ACO officer and one city ACO officer, a shelter manager, and along with a group of unpaid volunteers at the shelter help facilitate adoptions and returning dogs to owners. We keep adoptable dogs as long as possible but we are a very small facility and do not have much space. Along with the shelter manager, we have approved non paid volunteers who work daily in the shelter to help clean, exercise dogs, vaccinate, medicate (under a veterinarians supervision), and network dogs online and to rescues.

The Volunteers appreciate many donations that people bring in and you can help by viewing our "Wish List" posted on our Facebook Page (See our FB link below) and the volunteers website. Currently we are working on raising money to help pay off our outstanding vet bills for the shelter dogs. If you wish to make tax deductible donations to the Lewisburg Animal Shelter you may do so by sending to: City of Lewisburg 131 East Church Street Lewisburg TN 37091. Donations that are NOT tax deductible which the Shelter Volunteers use to purchase toys and treats for the dogs, pay for vetting that is not covered by the city, and purchase office supplies to market the dogs may be made to Lewisburg Shelter Volunteers 300 Woodside Lewisburg TN 37091. We are NOT a 501c3 volunteer group so your donations are not tax deductible to the volunteers, however we can recommend our local Friends of Animals in Marshall County Humane Association as a way to donate to the animals of our community as a tax free donation if you wish. Their address is PO Box 2571 Lewisburg TN 37091. We are constantly evolving to better the shelter and the community involvement.

Adopting a friend

We do not adopt out dogs before their 3-5 day holds are up. A dog may not be fostered until after it is available to rescue and past the adoption date. The city shelter does not have a foster program operated by the city however if you are interested in fostering for a rescue contact the rescue to see if they are willing to pull the dog for you to foster it when the dog is made available for rescue. If you have any questions about any of the dogs please call 931-359-5948 or post a question here. We have a Shelter Manager at the shelter Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 8am-5pm (closed an hour for lunch) and Saturdays 8am-12pm. Volunteers are available on Thursdays from 12-4pm. Our adoption fee is currently $75. This fee covers the spay/neuter/Rabies vax/shelter vax for each dog. No dog will leave the shelter not vetted except to approved rescue. We accept personal checks or correct change when you come in to adopt. You must fill out an adoption application in order to adopt.

Adopters/rescues will be notified what order they are in in regards to each dog. They are available at 8am on the day they are available. Non vetted dogs will have an appointment scheduled and will be available for pickup for adoption the day after their surgery. Approved rescues may pull a dog and have vetted at their own expense once available to the public. We are a dog only facility and do not accept nor adopt out cats.
