Adopted a dog called “classy” here at the shelter as I was going back up to fort Bragg. She is the most well behaved baby ever and she knows so many tricks and is so gentle with kids and doesn’t bark. Also potty trained and crate trained I don’t think they knew any of that . She was the most shy dog in the shelter but as soon as we put her in the car her mood completely changed so thankful. ❤️ will go back here again to adopt a baby . UPDATE: classy is doing amazing and has adjusted so well with our family and we both have gotten so attached to each other. Her favorite things are car rides, peanut butter filled hooves, my bed and hills special diet food (she’s very picky).


Adopted a small dog brought from this shelter to NJ, she was groomed and health inspected. Wonderful pet. Thank you.

I'm currently fostering to adopt a great little dog. The staff I have encountered here are pleasant, knowledgeable and obviously care about the animals in their care. This is hard work both physically and emotionally. Kudos to all!

Animal control always has such negative reviews, I wasnt expecting a great experience. I knew I wanted an older cat, and they recommended "Ric Flair", a 3 year old cat. They gave me as much as time as I wanted to play with him and see how we connected, and ultimately I found my best friend that weekend. They answered every question I had in such a non- condescending way and I really appreciated not being rushed. Was a great adoption and would definitely consider adopting from here again. Update: I adopted another cat last year. Another FIV+ cat, another easy adoption. I love visiting and the staff is always friendly even at their busiest.

Athens deserves a nice big facility, not the tiny dog jail we've got. Greenville, SC has such an awesome facility. I wish Athens did but it's so old and outdated. If you've lost a pet place a "Lost Pet Report" but don't expect them to notify you if your pet is brought into them. Once my microchipped dog got out and someone brought her to ACC Animal Control. The microchip company called and told me but not Animal Control. I immediately called ACC Animal Control who told me a rescue group was there (Circle of Friends) and they gave my dog to them!!! I never could get her back either!!!

Very clean, happy, upbeat place. The animals are glad to get out of their runs and interact in very nice play yards
