Demopolis Animal Control is a very active part of the Demopolis community and surrounding areas. We are the only shelter within the county, and even surrounding counties, therefore we take satisfaction in serving our public!
We enforce the city’s leash laws, teach animal care at schools and clubs, promote adoptions, and offer humane care of all animals. Our Shelter is open to clubs and school classes year round.
Our Shelter is capable of holding 30 dogs at a time; therefore we always have a good selection of animals for adoption. Our Shelter offers trained staff members that attend classes yearly to be up to date on animal control laws and operations of running an accredited shelter. Our staff is also trained on emergency care and disaster relief.
Our Chief Animal Control Officer is also retained by the United States Humane Society to investigate animal cruelty throughout our counties.
We are proud of our Animal Control Program because it not only enforces the leash laws, but we also promote adoptions and humane treatment of all animals.
Demopolis Animal Control is eager to serve, so please give us a call if we can help.

All of us struggle and rejoice together, so we each urge you to talk with your city and county representatives. Let them know that we need them to commit support us financially and legally. Also email our state government on issues that you feel need attention.
