Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are Animal Control for Bay County (Panama City area) Florida.

About Our Shelter:

Although we are the municipal animal control, we work hand in hand with Rescue organizations and the public to place as many animals as possible, day in and day out. We have, in the past eight months, quadrupled our adoptions and reduced our euthanasia rate by nearly thirty percent overall. We have, in the last year, adopted out almost a thousand pets.
We have further begun a program of pursuing and prosecuting animal cruelty in the County for the first time. We also provide services such as free vaccines for pets; in July we vaccinated (for free) over one thousand pets, most of whom had never been vaccinated.

Come Meet our Pets:

We adopt out of our shelter Tuesdays through Fridays from 10am to 6pm, Saturdays from 10am to 3pm, and we have pets at the 23rd St. PetSmart in Panama city at least two weekends a month.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application, upon receipt of which we conduct a background check to insure the best adopters possible. Our adoption fee is a flat $75.00, which includes spay/neuter and all vaccinations. ALL animals leaving our facility or adoption are spayed/neutered before they go home (unless against Veterinarian advice, in which case a deposit is taken and aggressive follow-up occurs).

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.
