Located at 782 East Lane Rd in Crossville TN, the Cumberland County Animal Shelter is tucked away on a winding road that seems to lead to nowhere. Where it leads however is to the home of your next best friend
Cumberland County and the city of Crossville are beginning talks about how to handle the pet overpopulation in the community.
Who We Are
The primary function of the Cumberland County Animal Shelter is public safety and animal control.
Animals running at large left unchecked become a hazard to the public, pets, live stock and the stray itself. The staff of the CCAS, along with Cumberland County and the City of Crossville, strive to provide and maintain a safe shelter for the animals brought into our care. We work with A.A.R.F. (www.aarf-tn.com) to save our adoptable dogs from Euthanasia at all costs. A.A.R.F. has received funding from the PETCO Foundation to purchase a van to transport animals to approved rescues in New England. Transports leave weekly, assuming there are enough dogs that need to be moved. For more information about this program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Adopting a friend
When adopting a pet please keep in mind your lifestyle.
If you do not have time to properly groom a long-haired animal,
for example, look for an animal with a short care-free coat.
