Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

The Northest Georgia Animal Shelter is an open admission, non-profit Shelter, supported financially by private donations and funds from eight city and county jurisdictions. We do not refuse any animals from Hart and Franklin Counties. We often take in sick and injured animals, feral cats, wild dogs, and viscious dogs. In these cases, it is our obligation to humanely end the suffering of these animals. We strive to get all of our animals adopted, and often work with rescue groups and other local shelters to achieve this. Our maximum capacity is 60 animals. Currently our adoption rate is 40% and we are working hard every day to increase it. Our goal of course, is an adoption rate of 100%. We also have a 40% RESCUE rate! Thanks to all the rescues that pull from us. We are very rescue friendly.

About Our Shelter:

The Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter believes that all animals are entitled to be free from suffering, abuse, and exploitation. We believe in the intrinsic dignity and sanctity of animal life. We have an obligation to prevent cruelty, alleviate suffering, and to protect and care for homeless and abandoned animals. Our mission is to promote the adoption of companion animals and to educate the public on responsible pet ownership. We believe that our values, decisions, conduct, and behavior should set the tone and be a model for others in their care and treatment of animals.

Come Meet our Pets:

Take I-85 north to the Lavonia exit 173 at Hwy. 17, go right, travel approximately 1.5 miles through town, turn right at the Northeast Georgia Bank on to Bear Creek Road. The Shelter is approximately 1 mile on the right. The hours of operation are from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Tuesday through Saturday.

Our Adoption Process:

The NEGAS handles approximately 3,500 animals per year. Adoption fees are used to reimburse local veterinarians who spay or neuter the adopted animals. When an animal is adopted, the owner is given a certificate that can be redeemed at a participating veterinarian clinic for the required rabies vaccinations and spay/neuter procedures on their new pet. For dogs and cats that need altering, $55 and $45 are charged, respectively, for adoption. Dogs and cats that come to the Shelter already spayed or neutered can be adopted for $15.

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.
