Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter

To improve the lives of animals, alleviate their suffering and elevate their status in our community. We will safeguard, rescue, shelter, provide necessary medical care, adopt, and advocate for animals in need, while inspiring community action on their behalf. Provide information on low cost Spay/Neuter, Humane Education, Animal Control, and focus on prevention of abuse and animal overpopulation.


Diamonds story is long and sad.

Her owner surrendered her to the animal control officer. Her living conditions were squalid to say the least.  Multiple dogs were living on chains.  

She was heavy with puppies. She, actually, started to deliver in the animal control truck.  Five minutes after she arrived at the shelter she delivered her first pup.

Diamond delivered 11 beautiful puppies that day. Unfortunately, only 2 survived.

Diamond was totally vetted and we found out that Diamond is heartworm positive.

Diamond took care of her two babies and they were able to go to a rescue, but because of being an adult pit bull and HW+, Diamond was left behind.

Diamond is a great dog. She has become a staff favorite. Her name has been on "the list", but we are very committed to finding a great home for this girl.

Please, look at her gorgeous girl and take her to heart. She is waiting to make someone an awesome companion!

Adoption process:

● Fill out an application

● Fill out a contract

● Pay the adoption fee

 

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.  Otherwise we can not hold animals.  Once the adoption fee has been paid, arrangements will be made to have the pet altered.  Pets may not go home until they have been altered.

 



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.
