Who We Are
Thank you for your interest in Senatobia-Tate County Animal Shelter. We are a non-profit facility operated by the City of Senatobia and Tate County. As a non-profit organization, STC depends highly on donations, surrender fees, adoption FEES, and fund-raising activities to provide care for the needy animals of Senatobia and Tate County.
All financial contributions and gifts are tax-deductible
Our goal is to improve the unfortunate future of lost, unwanted, homeless animals by providing shelter, care, adoption services, and foster homes. We promote responsible pet ownership by advocating spay/neuter, and educating the citizens of our county, to the humane and compassionate treatment of animals.
Adopting a friend
Adopting a pet from the Senatobia - Tate County Animal Shelter is easy. Take a look at our pet list to see who is currently available for adoption, and then come by the shelter for a visit. Upon approval, an adoption application will be completed and you can take home your forever pet.
WHEN ADOPTING CONSIDER AN ADULT ANIMAL
Adult Dogs Have Less Energy.
Puppies have boundless supplies of energy which they must expend somehow. If you fail to properly expend a dog's energy, this leads to destructive behaviors like chewing, barking and even anxiety or aggression.
Adopting a dog age two or older will enable new dog owners to enjoy a dog who has already expended that seemingly-boundless puppy energy, making training and dog ownership in general much easier. Often time there are dogs up for adoption that are already trained.
With adult dogs their size is evident. A puppy's adult size is difficult to determine. Even purebreds vary in size among their breed.
WHY TETHERING IS INHUMANE
Dogs are naturally social beings who thrive on interaction with human beings and other animals. A dog kept chained in one spot for hours, days, months or even years suffers immense psychological damage. An otherwise friendly and docile dog, when kept continuously chained, becomes neurotic, unhappy, anxious and often aggressive. If you must tether your animal see the City of Senatobia Animal Control Ordinance so as not to be in violation of the law.
