Animal Control Program & Shelter in Hickman County, Tennessee!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

Hickman County has a population of 24,690 and covers 612 square miles. We are on the Williamson County line and growing quickly. We currently do not have any kind of animal control program in place. Our deputies can’t properly enforce animal cruelty laws because our sheriff’s department doesn’t have a budget for boarding or veterinary care. The solution to our very massive dog at large problem is shooting dogs. That means that many beloved pets have been shot if they accidentally escaped or wandered off property. You should see our lost and found pages. I find this unacceptable. Please join me in convincing our sheriff and our county commissioners that an animal control program and shelter should be a mandatory service for the safety of our community.
