Garrett Animal Shelter is a city run shelter that deals only with dogs and cats. Unfortunately, we are not a no kill shelter; We do everything possible to find each adoptable animal a new forever home. Our animals offically only have about 3 weeks to find a new home. However that is not a set in stone time limit. Most of the animals we get are strays, so we don't know a whole lot about them other than what we learn while interacting with them here. We only accept animals from inside the city limits of Fulton but often have a list of animals needing homes from the county. Please feel free to call or e-mail us about a specific pet you are looking for if none are listed here.
