Welcome to the Spalding County Animal Shelter Petfinder page. Here at Spalding County Animal Control, we have a vision—a vision we believe so strongly, we have made it our mission. Our foremost goal is animal control. We ensure the health and safety of the residents of Spalding County by controlling the population of unwanted animals—domesticated and otherwise. Second, we strongly believe in the humane treatment of all animals. We do our best to ensure all animals are provided with adequate food, fresh water, and shelter. We also protect animals that have been fought, maliciously killed, injured, and permanently disfigured. By responding to your calls and through investigative efforts, we are able to charge and convict many animal cruelty offenders.
How You Can Help Us Achieve These Goals:
You can help reduce the number of unclaimed animals in shelters by taking the following steps:
We love to see our animals adopted. That is the most enjoyable part of our job. We have many adoptable animals that want to go home and be a part of your family. Our adoptable animals are willing to give your family unconditional love and companionship. By adopting out animals to good homes, we meet the majority of our goals! Thank you for caring. Feel free to contact us for additional information. And be sure to visit us on Facebook! Just click the icon below:
1. Step One--Apply to Adopt. After you choose a pet that is suitable for your family and living situation, you must fill out an adoption application. This application asks questions pertinent to your individual situation and the care your new pet will receive. Once you complete the application, you will be approved for an adoption, denied an adoption, or counseled on the specific animal you have chosen.
2. Step Two--Finalize the Adoption by Paying the Adoption Fee. After your application has been approved by the shelter, you still need to do a few things to finalize the adoption. There is an adoption
3. Step Three--Make Arrangements for Vetting. You will need to make arrangements to have your new pet spayed or neutered. It's always best to have the pet examined by a vet before you take him or her home. Your vet will explain the best annual vaccination schedule for your new pet and can discuss options for heartworm prevention as well as deworming and protecting your new dog or cat from fleas and ticks. All veterinary fees are the responsibility of the adopter.
All licensed GA rescues and approved out-of-state rescues are welcome at the shelter. It's one of the most rescue-friendly in the state. But two rescues have made it their primary mission to help Spalding--one helps the dogs and the other helps the cats. Working with the shelter staff, these rescues (and all the other rescues who help the pets at Spalding), their volunteers, and wonderful fosters have succeeded in saving over 90% of the adoptable pets at the shelter during the past year! Please support them in their efforts to keep the save rate high. Happy Tailz Humane works with cats and kittens at Spalding and Saving Georgia Dogs is committed to helping the dogs and puppies And, of course, the citizens of Spalding County come to the shelter every week to adopt pets and have provided many with secure homes.="0">

It costs our rescue $90 to pull a cat and foster it until it is adopted, but any amount will be appreciated and applied towards this cat! In 2012 we have rescued many cats at animal control and spay,neutered and fully vetted over 70 cats and placed back at animal control to be adopted by Spalding County Residents. We have started a program to Fix Felines called Fixin Felines for the shelter animals. 37 have already taken advantage of this during 2014.. Our fully vetted rescues may be seen daily at the Fayetteville 24 Hr Adoption Center in Petsmart, located at 101 Pavilion Parkway also located at East Point Parkway.

Saving Georgia Dogs, Inc. is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization & licensed rescue in Georgia. We save dogs every day on death row in Georgia's high kill shelters. Our primary focus is rescuing dogs from Spalding County Animal Control. Our motto is "No dog left behind." We believe all dogs deserve a chance at life which is why we rescue in order of who's next to die. We take the black dogs, the old dogs, the dogs who require extensive medical care, the dogs who have been so traumatized by being dumped in a kill shelter that they turn their faces to the wall & give up on life. We pull, board, vet & rehabilitate them & help get them placed in loving forever homes through our trusted receiving rescues in the Northeast and other areas of the U.S.
