All pets adopted from Floyd County Animal Control are required to be spayed or neutered by adopter, as well as vaccinated for rabies per Georgia State law. Due to funding, this is the adopter's expense. These procedures are not included in the adoption fee. Adoptions must be done in person at the facility and we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and Debit
While we strive to adopt out all pets to good homes, this is a rural county with a low rate of spay/neuter. Vast numbers of pets are surrendered, or found lost, neglected, or abandoned. Space is limited; therefore, pets are only held for a brief period at this facility. Therefore, euthanization is a weekly task.
Rescue groups wishing to rescue animals both in state and out of state, must be a non-profit organization licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and their application to rescue must be approved by the Floyd County Animal Control Director. For rescue groups located out of state, the group must also meet all of the licensing requirements in the state in which they reside. All rescue groups must have an application approved by the Floyd County Animal Control Director. Each rescue group must submit a copy of its shelter license and a list of approved agents to pick up animals from the Floyd County Animal Control Shelter on official GA DOA forms. Only the rescue license holder or an approved agent of the license holder may pick up animals from the shelter.The application, rescue hold request form, official GA DOA forms as well as our standard operating procedures may be found here:FCAC Rescue Page
