Who We Are
This shelter is a joint operation supporting the animal control needs of both Washington County and Johnson City. We are not actually a goverment organization or a humane society. Our main services include stray animal pick-up, warnings to those violating animal control and humane laws, adoption of animals and euthanasia of pets.

Volunteering and Donations
There is plenty to do at the shelter and people 18 years and older are welcome to stop in. Unfortunately, we used to encourage younger volunteers to come in with a guardian but our insurance company frowns on this, so this is no longer the practice. Donations can be made in the form of supplies (i.e. food, bedding, toys, office supplies, cleaning supplies, etc.) or money. Several times a year special donations can be made such as sponsoring the Annual Dog Jog or helping with the printing costs of the annual newsletter.
