The City of Waynesboro wants to save dogs. Animal Control is not a department unto itself but actually falls under the Waynesboro Police Department. Animal Control works closely with Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue in order to help save more homeless animals. http://oldfella.org
City of Waynesboro Animal Control is the only animal control in Burke County. It covers Waynesboro City Limits only. Stray dogs and owner surrenders will now have a second chance for a good life.
