Animal Control is an office that is operated through the Chattooga County Commissioner's Office. Animal Control Director, April Dempsey, facilitates the difficult task of housing abandoned, homeless, and lost animals. Animal Control officers, Davy Hairston and Brandy Prince, work tirelessly at the behest of the director and the county to ensure that animals are not only compassionately captured and cared for but also protecting animals from neglect and mistreatment.
Chattooga County Animal Control has many dogs and cats that are available for adoption. Time is of the essence when it comes to adopting these animals because county ordinance only allows the center to hold the animals for five days.
Note: All adoption fees cover the cost of spaying/neutering the animal and giving them a rabies shot. Any additional procedures or vaccinations are at the expense of the adopter and payable to the veterinary clinic at the time of services.
Potential adopters from outside the county can adopt for $25 and send back proof of spaying/neutering.
