The Walker County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center serves the North Georgia community by providing humane care for animals that are lost, abandoned and unwanted. We strive to place every adoptable animal into good loving homes and encourage good pet guardianship through programs such as spay/neuter to help end the homeless plight of our companion animals. If you are looking for Animal Control, please visit their page.
Monday through Friday – 10:00am to 4:00pm
Saturday – 8:00am to 1:00pm

In 2017, we became a Fellow with Target Zero, a non-profit organization helping us to improve care at our animal shelter, make adoptions easier and reduce the cycle of unwanted pets. You can read the Target Zero assessment of our shelter here and follow our progress in the Records section of this site.

Our first Priceless Pets event in May was a huge success! 25 dogs and 16 cats found new homes during this event. We also had 263 visitors to the Walker County Animal Shelter over the course of the two day free adoption period. In December, during our “12 hours of Christmas Adopt-A-Thon,” we adopted out 17 dogs and 7 cats!
