The Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment of Wakulla, Inc., known as CHAT of Wakulla is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, charitable corporation committed to improving the health, safety, and well-being of domesticated animals. We are a limited intake organization (controlled by space available at the adoption center and available foster homes) with a guaranteed adoption policy. CHAT contracts with Wakulla County and operates the ANIMAL ADOPTION CENTER at 1 Oak Street, Crawfordville, FL, 32327 (next to the WAKULLA ANIMAL CONTROL office and shelter).
We work closely with Wakulla Animal Control assisting with medical care for animals in their control and once animals have been held for five days (required by law), we bring animals into our care for foster and adoption. Upon entering CHAT's care, dogs are given shots for distemper, parvo, parainfluenza, hepatitis, bordatella, wormed, tested for heartworms (and treated when necessary) and there after given monthly heartworm preventatives. Upon entering CHATS care, cats are tested for Feline Leukemia/Feline Aids and intestinal parasites and dewormed and vaccinated for rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia, chlamydia and leukemia.
Our phone number is 850-926-0890 and we'd love to hear from you, have you visit the Adoption Center and become a member of CHAT. Please visit our website (www.chatofwakulla.org) for more information about volunteering, fostering, donating and becoming a member. We are a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our Articles of Incorporation were filed on August 8, 2001. Our roots are in the former Wakulla Humane Society, an organization that had been active for over 30 years

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.
