The Washington County/Johnson City Animal Control Center is an animal care and control agency that assumes a unique role in the community. Created as a joint venture between Johnson City and Washington County to enforce the animal control laws of the City and state. It protects the rights of people against the dangers and nuisances of uncontrolled animals and protects animals from mistreatment and abuse from people. Promoting, motivating and enforcing responsible pet ownership is our number one goal.
We envision the day when all citizens, their property and their neighborhood will be safe from the dangers and nuisances of irresponsible pet ownership. We envision the day when animals will not suffer because of human abuse, neglect or ignorance.
