Our Mission

Animal Control operates the Animal Shelter and enforces Lauderdale County’s Animal Welfare Laws. The Shelter will house approximately 4000 animals annually. We are an animal adoption facility and adopt on average 30% of all animals taken in. Animal Control hours are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM for animal drop-offs. You can adopt a pet from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday thru Friday. The shelter is closed on weekends.

Adoption Policy

The LCAC is located at 501 Cooper Avenue, Meridian, Mississippi. The phone number is (601) 485-1849.

Adoptable animals may be viewed Monday-Friday between the hours of 10 am - 12 noon and 1 pm - 4:30 pm. The shelter is closed on weekends.

LCAC adoption fees start at $20 for unaltered pets and $40 for altered pets. A $10 fee will be added for all age appropriate pets to cover rabies vaccination.

If you would like to donate to the LCAC shelter, you may do so in person or by mailing a check to the shelter (501 Cooper Ave., Meridian, MS 39301). All checks must be made payable to Lauderdale County Board of Supervisors and have “Humane Fund” written in the memo line.
