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.


Mystic knows tricks!

Update 7/30: ‘Danger dogs’ Boomer and Chester have been adopted, but Peaches and Mystic have been here too long and are still in immanent danger. They are ultra adoptable dogs, each special in their own way. Click on the ‘Available Dogs’ link to see them. Call the shelter at 706-613-3540 right away if you or someone you know can adopt or rescue any of them.
