The Upson County Animal Shelter is funded by Upson County. Our task is to manage stray and unwanted pets in Upson County. Pets featured on this site are available for adoption. Time is of the essence for these pets. If you see a pet you are interested in please contact the shelter or come and visit as soon as possible.
The Upson Shelter is happy to work with any licensed Georgia rescue with a license in good standing with the Georgia Department of Agriculture. Contact the Shelter as soon as possible if you are interested in one of our pets.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are located at 2371 Yatesville Hwy. in Thomaston, GA. From the town square our location is on 74 East toward Macon. Office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Shelter hours for visiting pets are 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fee is $20. Immediately upon adoption all pets (if old enough) must have a rabies vaccine from one of our local vets. Cost is $12. Any bully breed must be spayed/neutered prior to being transferred to their new family. We have several low cost options available as well as two local vets that preform this surgery. Also any pet being adopted to a resident outside of Upson County must have the pet spayed/neutered prior to leaving the county. Pets too young to be safely spayed/neutered must have their appointment prepaid prior to the pet leaving our shelter.
