We always have plenty of dogs in need of good homes. Please come by to see what we have to offer! We have extended our hours so we are open later most weekdays...see details below! If you are missing a dog or want to inquire about an available dog stop in a see us or give us a call! We are also rescue friendly and more than willing to work with any legitimate rescue organization. However, rescues must coordinate with one of our 3 rescue coordinators in order to pull from our shelter. If you are 501c3 our current pull fee is $5 with a copy of your current 501c3 in our files.
Who We Are
We function as animal control for the city of Lewisburg and Marshall County. We strive to find homes for the dogs that happen to end up here, but our main focus is stray and abandoned animal control. We are a dog only facility and at the current time do not accept or do calls on cats. We have one county ACO officer and one city ACO officer along with a group volunteers at the shelter to help facilitate adoptions and returning dogs to owners. We keep adoptable dogs as long as possible but we are a very small facility and do not have much space. We have approved volunteers who work daily in the shelter to help clean, exercise dogs, vaccinate, medicate (under a veterinarians supervision), and network dogs online and to rescues.
The Volunteers appreciate many donations that people bring in and you can help by viewing our "Wish List" posted on our Facebook Page (See our FB link below) and the volunteers website. Currently we are working on raising money to purchase a carport for shade for the dogs in our exercise pens and for a cage dryer to dry the larger dogs with after their baths.
Our adoption fee is $71 and includes spay/neuter, rabies, and distemper/parvo vaccination at a Marshall County Vet. Our facility only handles dogs...we don't take cats!
Come Visit Us!
We are located in Lewisburg TN just off Ellington Parkway between the Elks Lodge and the Lewisburg Waste Water department. Our Animal Control hours are 7 a.m. to 5:00 Monday thru Friday.
Volunteers are available at the shelter for your convience currently Mondays 11-6, Tuesdays 9-4, Wed 9-11, Thursdays 9-11, and Saturdays 9-12.
Please call to see if an ACO or LAS Volunteer is in. Leave a message as sometimes we are mere steps away or in the back with the dogs and simply cannot get to the phone in time. We will call you back! There are only two ACOs to cover the whole county and are frequently out on calls. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please call or email and one of the animal control officers or LAS Volunteers will be glad to make arrangements to assist you at the shelter. Feel free to visit the City of Lewisburg shelter volunteers' Facebook page Lewisburg Animal Shelter Volunteers for any inquiries or questions, also!
