Anderson County Animal Control is the government agency responsible for reuniting lost pets with their owners and enforcing all laws pertaining to domestic animals in Anderson County. Anderson County Animal Control is funded by taxpayers and we encourage you to contact them if you find a stray or suspect neglect/abuse.
Making A Difference
Lost & Found Pets
If you find a lost pet, check them animal for any tags. You may call or drop off any stray to Anderson County Animal Control. Afterward, we encourage you to use The Official Lost and Found Pets of Anderson County Facebook page, if you find a missing pet. AHS does not take in strays, since we try to hold only pets waiting for new homes.
The AHS’s Rabies Clinic is held once every year around late May or early June on a Saturday from 1:00PM – 3:00PM. All pet owners are invited to bring their cats or dogs to the Rabies Clinic for low cost vaccinations. We offer Canine Rabies and Distemper/Parvo, Feline Rabies and Distemper vaccinations, along with Anderson County Dog Licenses.
Spay & Neuter
When the program began in 2005, about 1,100 stray, abandoned, or unwanted animals were taken in at the Humane Society. Now, the number has fallen below 800 despite a growth in the county’s population. Spaying and Neutering pets in Anderson County is part of a solution to prevent animal euthanasia due to overpopulation.
