We couldn't be happier with our new family member Fenster aka "Fen"! After inquiring about the puppies on petfinder, Tanna responded immediately despite being well past work hours. Communication was ...tricky as Tanna is truly a one-woman show, but she knew what she was doing and the adoption process went flawlessly. Our pup was clean and ready to go when we eagerly arrived a half hour early to get him. He is healthy and happy and you can tell he was well cared for while with Tanna. I'll sacrifice the communication issue for a well loved pup any day! Thank you Tanna! See More

My experience with the Shelter has always been a positive one. For the size of the town there should be at least two people to help the community. For those citizens that have issues with the lack of... help maybe should volunteer to help with the animals. Keep up the good work and efforts. Your rewards will be given by the good Lord one day. Thank you for all that you get accomplish. See More

Tanna Ross is an amazing woman. She has the most passion for her work than anyone I've ever known. She deeply and sincerely cares for these animals and their safety and well being. She deserves a much... larger shelter and a huge raise...and even though she is not given these things she continues to give 1000% of her heart and soul. If I ever win a large amount of money...she'll never have to worry about anything for the rest of her life:-) Thank you my friend for simply caring... See More

Shouldn't be called Atchison -Animal- Control. Should be called -Dog- Control. I've reached out for help multiple times. Called about stray dogs tearing up things in my neighborhood a while back and h...ave never heard back. I've asked for help and resources to figure out what to do about the many, many unhealthy nasty cats in my neighborhood and guess what? I've never received the help. The one time is did get a response I was told "I only deal with dogs" which is why this isn't -animal- control. See More

I drove 8 hours to adopt a puppy from Tanna after she took the time to go over my application and verify my references. Her communication was open and quick. She was obviously not just looking to reho...me a dog as soon as she could. It was worth the drive. Tanna obviously has compassion for theses animals and was very precise in going over all the details of the adoption of our new family member. I was very impressed with the process and the time she took with us. Atchison is very lucky to have her. See More

Atchison Animal Control is the best! Tanna's love for these animals is unconditional and the support that this establishment gives and receives from the community is like no other. Atchison Animal C...ontrol and it's diligent care and love for these animals and great education to the community is what convinced our family that rescue is the way to go! See More

Well for the people that are complaining that your/ours tax money that is going to someone that won't catch a dog has never seen her clinic nor the post she puts on Facebook about how she saves them. ...If it wasn't for her there would be ALOT of mean dogs out there. I would rather give someone my tax money to save animals then people that sit on there ass doing drugs and get money handed to them because there too lazy to get a job. I have alot of people that will stand by that statement too. Not saying anyone does that on here just pointing out a fact! See More

January 24, 2014 is a date that changed my life FOREVER. I went to Atchison Animal Control with my sister to pick up my adopted four-legged daughter, Jasmine (now called "Jazzy") and Tanna had gone t...he extra mile and really read through the adoption applications and made a match. I can't believe how we have bonded and I like to tell people that we rescued each other! Thank you, Tanna, from the bottom of my heart! See More

Would have been nice to know an animal was adopted as I've been calling, emailing, posting on here and no response. Sad that a company like this can't respond to those wanting to give an animal such a... great home. To know that whom ever is working this fb page was getting on here and posting new dogs and responding to others, and still not get a response to multiple inquiries is sad. Oda (English bulldog) could have been in a loving home last weekend when she was posted for adoption instead of hanging out in a kennel setting. See More

Tanna is a very polite, devoted individual that cares about the animals she is out there protecting and or protecting the public against the vicious ones. When my little yorkie came up missing it was ...no time at all after I talked to her about it that she had it posted on her website with his picture asking people to help in which they didm the people were awesome sharing the info and making caring comments so for that I thank you. But Tanna, she is a very awesome Atchison Control Officer just awesome See More

Tanna is the best for these animals! She does so much for these furbabies and makes sure everyone of them gets their furever home... This woman deserves a lot for what she does and probably doesn't g...et it, but as long as she does for these animals she doesn't care what she gets from it! Love her and her work she does for this community and others! See More

Tanna Ross of Atchison's Animal Shelter is definitely the definition of greatness posted above! She continuously surpasses any perceived amount of potential I could ever begin to imagine for what it t...akes to dedicate one's life to the rescue and security of so many precious animals. I highly recommend this shelter and I pray that donations will continuously pour into this shelter, so this saving service can grow into its fullest potential. See More

Had an absolute great experience with adopting my dog from the atchison animal shelter. Mambo...or Cain as he is now known has been a great addition to our family!

Tanna Ross has saved thousands of dogs and cats in less than five years as the solitary officer at Atchison Animal Control. She loves, cherishes, and fights for a better life for every single animal ...she takes in. I recommend her and her shelter to all looking to better the lives of our helpless voiceless beloved furry companions. She is to dogs what Mother Theresa was to impoverished human beings. See More

I have great respect for anyone that is in the business of caring and looking out for animals. My problem is someone from AAC., banged on my door, no uniform, did not identify herself, and just let... me have it about a situation with my dog. She made a good point. My problem was in the delivery! See More
