Who We Are

The primary function of the Cumberland County Animal Shelter is public safety and animal control.
Animals running at large left unchecked become a hazard to the
public, pets, live stock and the stray itself. The staff of the CCAS, along
with Cumberland County and the City of Crossville, strive to provide
and maintain a safe shelter for the animals brought into our care.
We work with A.A.R.F. ( to save our adoptable dogs from Euthanasia
at all costs. A.A.R.F. has received funding from the PETCO Foundation to purchase a van to transport
animals to approved rescues in New England. Transports leave weekly, assuming there are
enough dogs that need to be moved. For more information about this program,
