Welcome to The White County Animal Shelter

The animal shelter opened its doors in August 2008.  The shelter is located in a rural area of Middle Tennessee.  The shelter is currently a dog only facility.  Our primary focus is picking up stray dogs throughout White County, Tennessee.

The shelter has gone through many changes in the time it has been opened.  The building was a just basic pole barn and in time it has been enclosed with garage doors and has had a HVAC system installed to keep the dogs comfortable.  The inside consists of 16 runs and there are 17 additional runs outside.  We have a separate building for young puppies that contains individual cages to help ensure their health and well being.  There are two more separate buildings outside the main building that serve as a laundry room/storage area and another building that is primarily used for storage of tools, crates, and other miscellaneous items.

We also have two outside play/visitation area for the dogs.  All the materials and labor were donated so these play yards can exist.  The original off leash play area is known as Lola's Corner.

Please feel free to stop by anytime during operating hours and visit the shelter and meet the dogs in our care.
