Our mission is to encourage and respect the animal- human bond while anticipating and providing services that insure public health and safety through the proper promotion of animal welfare.  We seek to fulfill our mission through proactive animal-control enforcement, quality education in recognizing and preventing animal cruelty, and the enactment of progressive humane initiatives to relieve animal suffering.  We also provide care and placement for unwanted animals through quality adoptions, licensed rescue, foster programs and transport programs.
The Cherokee County Animal Shelter is a "full service" operation. We take in animals that are brought in by Cherokee County Animal Control officers, animals owned by citizens of Cherokee County and unwanted strays found in Cherokee County. The Cherokee County Animal Shelter also adopts animals out to the public. The adoption fee is $100.00.
