The Humane Society of Terrell County (HSTC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Dawson, GA. We are an all volunteer based rescue operating as a network of foster homes that care for pets in our homes until they can be adopted into loving homes. Please see our website for more information on our organization and how you can help -

Adoption Policy

All HSTC pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, dewormed and on monthly prevention medications for heartworms and fleas; it is our goal to make sure all pets are healthy while under our care. The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and cats $75 (we will discount if more than one pet is adopted at the same time or the adoptee is taking on some type of medical care). We do allow out-of-state adoptions, however, transportation is the responsibility of the adopter. 

We require a completed adoption application with a vet reference provided.  We will call your vet to verify your information. Adoption applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration matching the needs of the pet to an owner. Some long distance adoptions may also require a home visit from a local animal rescuer in the adopter’s area. 

HSTC does not have a shelter!! We are a network of foster homes in the Dawson (Terrell), Alban
