CHANGE IN SHELTER HOURS THIS WEEK

The Fulton County animal shelter will be open this Wednesday (August 23rd) but closed all day on Thursday (August 24th) due to the road closures surrounding the former president’s arrival at the Fulton County Jail located down the street from the animal shelter. To adopt or foster a dog on Thursday, please visit our Midtown shelter (981 Howell Mill Road NW) where there are over 100 dogs in need of homes this week. Thank you for your support!

The Fulton County Animal Shelter is out of housing space. We’re asking our community for help with stray pets so we can focus on emergency and critical situations. Animals in need will not and should not be abandoned. If you have found a healthy pet, please fill out a Found Pet Report. If you need other assistance please email pethelp@fultonanimalservices.com but know that the response time is delayed due to incredibly high volumes of animals and people in need of assistance.  

If you lost a pet, please visit the shelter and check the lost pet website page.

Adopt a pet in July and choose your pet’s adoption fee! Our shelters are full of incredible pets waiting for homes, and to them, your love is priceless!
