Rutherford County Animal Control Facility and Operations

If you are interested in adopting an animal from the Animal Control Facility you will need to come by and select an animal. After choosing the animal, you must fill out the adoption contract stating that you will take the animal to the veterinarian of your choice. The cost of the adoption is $60.00 for all dogs and cats. The cost includes your exam at the veterinarian's office, first rabies vaccine, first parvo/distemper vaccine, and the spay or neuter of the animal.
Hours of Operation for the Animal Control Facility
