Surrenders

Surrendering Your Pet

The shelters accept owner-surrendered animals Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM.

Citizens of Athens-Clarke County may surrender dogs or cats at no charge. Surrendering owners must bring their pet to the shelter and provide proof of residency in Athens-Clarke County. In most cases, surrendered animals are offered for adoption immediately. As space is limited, however, we cannot guarantee any surrendered animal will be held for adoption.
