Gordon County Animal Control is a shelter operated by our local county government. The shelter houses impounded, lost, abandoned and unwanted animals of Gordon County. Some of the animals are owner turn in and we are able to gather some information about them, others are strays and all we know about them is what we are able to learn observing them during their time with us. Most make wonderful pets! This shelter has to euthanize animals to make room for incoming animals. If you see a pet you like, PLEASE DON'T DELAY!

Any animals that is an owner surrender can legally be euthanized that day. A stray animal must be held for a minimum of three days. The animals typically get 3-7 days before they are euthanized.

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.
