About Our Shelter:

Garrett animal shelter is a city funded animal shelter. We only handle animals within the city limits of Fulton. Our shelter has room for about 20 dogs and 10 cats.
Our main goal is to find good stable homes for abandoned or mistreated animals. Our main job is animal control. We are a small shelter in a small town but the need for help in this area is large.
We appreciate any type of donations but prefer rawhide bones and chew toys. We also love having volunteers come by to walk dogs and play with the cats. There are only 2 employees for animal control and shelter operation so any help is greatly appreciated.

Our Adoption Process:

The cost of adopting one of our pets is $12 plus the cost of sterilization, which is $65 for male dogs and $75 for females for a total fee of $77 & $87. For cats the fees are $40 for males & $50 for females for a total of $52 & $62. This includes one vaccination (parvo/distemper vaccine) and one deworming with strongid. This also applies to cats. If the potential adopter is renting we need verification from a landlord that they can have a pet. The adopter is also required to get any follow up vaccines needed, heartworm test, and feline leukemia test for cats. If the adopter is wanting a pit bull they have to own their home and provide a vet reference. The animal adopted can go home with the adopter the same day except for pit bulls, they have to stay until they get sterilized which is usually done within a few days of adopting.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
