The City of Gallatin makes every effort to return lost pets to their owners. When this is not possible, animals are taken to the Sumner County Animal Control Facility located at 1033 Union School Road in Gallatin.
Sumner County Animal Shelter Tips
Please come into the shelter at least every other day. The shelter staff may have your pet listed as a different breed or mix or may be described differently than your description. When an animal is impounded it is checked for any form of visible identification and is scanned for a microchip. Even if your pet has identification, do not depend on a phone call. Collars and tags fall off and microchips are sometimes unreadable or untraceable. Sumner County Animal Services will hold a lost pet for a minimum of five days to give the owner a chance to find their pet.
