COVID-19 Response at the HSDC
The Humane Society of Dickson County is currently open during our regular hours for pet adoptions. However, for the safety of our staff and volunteers, we're asking visitors to follow social distancing guidelines for limiting the spread of COVID-19. Please do not come to the shelter if you are exhibiting any flu or coronavirus symptoms or have a fever. Of course, our work never stops, and we are still at "full capacity" with pets who are ready for adoption! It is important to know there is no current evidence the coronavirus can be transmitted from or to companion animals. Rest assured that our shelter animals will continue to receive daily care and love during this challenging time for our country.
We have canceled our in-person fundraising events for the next few months, but your generous donations are still needed. We rely on fundraising events to help us feed and care for our shelter animals, and those needs will continue. Please donate any amount you can by clicking on the yellow "Donate" button at the top of this page.
The Corona virus outbreak is rapidly evolving, so we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust our schedule and events accordingly. We are proud to be a part of such a caring and resilient community.

TriStar Bank Presents HSDC with
Latest News on the HSDC rescue operation in Charlotte
On February 28th, The Humane Society of Dickson County and Dickson County Animal Control conducted an emergency rescue of 32 dogs and 15-16 horses and mules from an animal neglect situation in Charlotte, Tennessee. The dogs were found living in deplorable conditions in two small buildings on a private property. One horse was immediately euthanized due to health concerns. The HSDC team was able to place 9 dogs directly into rescue organizations. The remaining 23 dogs were brought to the shelter. Of those, 14 were heartworm positive. All of the horses and mules have been placed in foster care.
The HSDC is in urgent need of monetary donations to support the ongoing medical care of these animals as we nurse them back to health. We also need foster caregivers who are able to take animals from our current adoptable population or any of these rescued dogs who are deemed well enough for rehoming.
Don't Overlook Me
Did you know our black dogs and cats wait for adoption longer than animals with lighter coat colors? Why? It's hard to know for sure, but it could be the simplest of reasons-- they don't stand out to shelter visitors like lighter-coated animals, and their dark coats make it difficult for us to photograph well. Please consider adopting one of these sweet black pets. They have dark fur and hearts of gold.
