This site is updated several times a week, but isn't up-to-the-minute accurate. For the most current info on a dog or cat, call Athens Animal Control and refer to the animal by ledger number, not name.
Timeliness is essential in adoption or rescue. Don't delay.
The shelter is often full, so owner-surrendered animals and those who have been there the longest are always in danger of euthanization.

Dog Collars Needed!
Athens Animal Control needs medium, large and extra large dog collars. New or used is fine! Collars aren’t a luxury – they make it much easier for volunteers to work with the dogs. If you can’t bring them in (and visit with the dogs while you’re at it!) you can mail them to the address at the bottom of this webpage. Thanks!!
