Visit Us

Lawrenceburg Animal ShelterWhen calling in reference to a dog please advise the officer of the dog’s number and/or name to get further information regarding that animal. The shelter holds monthly adoption days that run on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., however, adoptions are welcome anytime the officer is at the shelter.


Our shelter also has a team of wonderful volunteers that help out at the shelter. With the hard work of these volunteers our shelter currently has a 92% adoption rate! If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact the Assistant Chief of Police Daren Goolsby for an interview.
