Animal Control

The animal control unit is responsible for enforcing Section 10 of the Bristol, TN city ordinances regarding the care and welfare of domestic animals within the city limits to aid in ensuring the health and safety of the public. The animal control officer will respond to calls for services from concerned citizens, investigate reported violations, provide education for pet care, and direct those in need to additional animal resources available in our community.
