Dogs Currently at the Shelter

This site is updated several times a week, but isn’t up-to-the-minute accurate. For the most current information on a dog, call Athens-Clarke Animal Control and refer to the animal by ledger number, not name, or go to the county’s list of impounded animals.

All dogs receive a DAPPv-vaccine (distemper/puppy shot) and basic deworming upon impound. Some dogs receive additional vaccinations, including rabies and bordetella. Athenspets provides heartworm testing and spay/neuter for selected adult dogs as funds allow; information about the status of each of these is found on the individual dogs’ pages. All dogs are microchipped upon adoption.

While we try our best to describe what we see in each dog accurately, we are volunteers, not dog behavior professionals. Moreover, the behavior each dog exhibits at the shelter may change once he or she settles into a home. Please be sure to bring any household members with whom the dog must get along (e.g., other dogs, children, etc.) to the shelter for introductions before adopting so you can decide for yourself whether the dog is a good fit for your family.
