Reclaiming Your Impounded Pet

Each day, Athens-Clarke County Animal Control responds to a number of calls regarding dogs and cats. To ensure the safety of the public and of these animals, we sometimes impound these pets and hold them at our facility. If your pet is lost, please call Animal Control at 706-613-3540 or come by the facility. If your pet is not here, we can take a lost pet report so we can contact you if we get further information.
