Dogs Currently at the Shelter

The shelter is open by appointment only. Folks who need to reclaim an animal or who have found a stray animal, or are interested in fostering, adopting, or rescuing, should call 706-613-3540 to make an appointment.

Looking for a lost dog? The shelter now lists animals upon impound. Go to their webpage for a listing of 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, call Athens-Clarke Animal Control. Please refer to the dog by ledger number, not name, or go to the county’s list of impounded animals.

All dogs receive DHPP and bordetella vaccination and basic deworming upon impound. Most dogs receive additional veterinary care while at the shelter, including rabies vaccination. Dogs are microchipped and spayed or neutered prior to adoption; intact dogs must be altered at the owner’s expense upon the second reclaim from the shelter. The current (as of August 2020) adoption fee schedule is as follows:

  • Medium or larger dogs (6 months of age or older & over 25 pounds): $100
  • Puppies (under 6 months of age) and small dogs (25 pounds and under): $150
  • Dogs and puppies at the shelter more than 30 days: $50

While we try our best to describe what we see in each dog accurately, we are volunteers not dog behavior professionals. Moreover, the behavior a dog exhibits at the shelter may change once s/he 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.
