Animal Control

 Our responsibilities include the enforcement of local and state animal control laws, the humane capture and treatment of unwanted animals, investigation of animal abuse, neglect, cruelty, and the provision of emergency transportation and care for injured animals within our jurisdiction.

The Smyth County Animal Shelter provides a comfortable, warm and safe environment for animals received unwanted, abused or abandoned.  We provide adoption services for animals with suitable dispositions in an effort to place them within a nurturing environment.  We believe that shelter animals can become the loving, caring companions that are needed and wanted by our society today.
