Who We Are
We are the animal control shelter in Forsyth County. We do not have the proper equipment to ship animals. If you are interested in any of the pets you see online please feel free to call us at (770) 888-2500. We are open Mon-Fri 8:00am to 5:00pm , Saturdays 9:00am to 12:00p.m. We are closed on Sundays.
Adopting a friend
Adoption fees at the shelter are $85.00 for Dogs/Cats. If you adopt a puppy or kitten, you must have the pet altered before it reaches sexual maturity (a specific date). We give the first shots, Heartworm test for dogs and leukemia/AIDS test for cats, and worm medicine. A veterinarian checks the pets to make sure they are in good health to be adopted. We also give a microchip to every pet as it is adopted. For any other information please call the shelter at (770) 888-2500.
