What Should You Do With a Stray Animal?

Posted 02-07-19.

If you encounter a stray animal in the City of Sevierville, please call the Police Department immediately at 865-453-5506. The SPD Animal Control Officer can assist with collection of most domestic animals. When the ACO is not on duty, Patrol Officers can respond. When we pick-up an animal, we transport it to Sevier Animal Care Center in Sevierville (1040 Dolly Parton Parkway).

If you find a stray animal in the city and decide to bring it home, we will not collect the animal unless we are called as soon as you get home. Animals found outside the Sevierville city limits that are brought into the city will not be collected by the SPD. Please contact the law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction where the animal is found.
