The stray hold, at the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter, is 5 days. That allows owners a fair amount of time to come looking for their pets. On the sixth day, the animal becomes property of the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter and is offered for adoption. An animal may be pre-adopted, however, if the owner comes forward, within the 5 day stray hold, the animal goes back to the owner. The adoption fee is refunded at that time.

Unfortunately, we are not able to hold animals without the adoption process being completed.
That includes the payment of the adoption fee. Adoptions are done on a first come, first
served basis. Online applications are accepted and payment can be made via phone on
Mondays, otherwise we do not hold animals. When the process is complete, the pet will be scheduled to be altered. After that is done, the pet may be picked up.
Act quickly to adopt Blythe. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
