A search is underway for a new Cheatham County Animal Control Director after the previous director was dismissed from her post, according to County Mayor Kerry McCarver.


McCarver said Brooke Hall was dismissed from her position on Thursday after she admitted to spaying and neutering dogs and cats without a license in the state of Tennessee.


Other allegations against Hall in addition to accusations that she impersonated a veterinarian “are part of an open investigation by the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office,” he said.


Hall was hired for the director position in September 2020. She was among a total of four employees in Animal Control, including two officers and a clerk/receptionist, according to the Cheatham County government website.


Animal Control addresses calls involving domestic animals, wildlife, and livestock, and is certified under the Tennessee Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners – State Health Department.
