ADOPTABLE ANIMALS
The following are some of the animals available for adoption at Walton County Animal Control. Please see our detailed adoption procedures and rescue procedures before inquiring. Since not every animal is always posted, please contact the shelter when looking for a lost pet to file a detailed lost report. 
 
Note on "Mandatory Hold" dates:  as soon as an animal's hold date expires, it is available for adoption, rescue, and sadly, for euthanasia. Therefore, it is crucial that animals be adopted or rescued as close to the hold expiration date as possible. We accept applications and rescues inquires during the hold period. The hold end date does not necessarily mean the animal will be put to sleep on that date, but there is no guarantee the animal will be held longer once the hold expires.
 
Friends of Walton County Animal Control is a Facebook page run by volunteers who watch waltonpets.net and make updates as they can. But remember to check back here on waltonpets.net for the most  current and accurate information. The shelter does not see the conversations on the Facebook page, so always email the shelter directly for inquiries and applications.  Friends of WCAC is run by volunteers and Walton County does not have control over the postings made on the Facebook page. 
 
Wish List: Don't see a particular kind of dog or cat you are looking for? Just send an email to be placed on our wishlist for specific breeds and breed mixes.
 
Lost a dog or cat? We receive automatic emails from the Helping Lost Pets Database if you register your lost pet there.
 
 
 
Normal site update hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 to 5:00.

“Junior” is a handsome Doberman mixed boy with a docked tail. He was surrendered by an older couple on 7/28/14 who said they had too many dogs to care for. He is about 2 years old and weighs about 55 to 60 pounds. He looks to be in very good health. His eyes, ears, coat and skin all look good. He tested heartworm negative on 7/29/14 and was vaccinated (distemper/parvo), dewormed (pyrantal) and given a flea/tick spray. He has a calm and gentle disposition and is submissive when handled. He did great during his exam and blood-draw. He showed good, social interactions with two other dogs, doing a lot of sniffing and nub-wagging; no aggression was seen. We are not sure if he is housebroken, but he did hold it all night in his kennel. He does well on the leash, sits on command, and doesn’t jump up too much. His tender personality makes it seem he would do well with children too. See his health/temperament evaluation.

“Dawson” is a cool mixed breed; maybe Beagle and Boxer? His hold expired five days ago, so next to “Blaze”, “Dawson” is one of the most urgent in the shelter and needs rescue/adoption soon. He was picked up stray 7/21/14 and no owner has come looking for him. He has a friendly and social personality and is always wagging his tail. He did wonderfully for his exam and blood draw. He was very good interacting with several other dogs in the shelter. He did a lot of sniffing and wagging and did not show any aggression. He appears very healthy and a good weight (about 40-50 pounds). He is short and stocky… just like a Beagle and a Boxer mixed together! His ears, eyes, skin and coat all look great. He tested heartworm negative and has been vaccinated and dewormed. He sits on command and does very well on the leash. See his health/temperament evaluation.

"MYRTLE"

Species: Ruby-throated Hummingbird

Scientific Name: Archilochus colubris

Sex: female

Weight: approx. 0.1 - 0.2 ounces

Note: "A flash of green and red, the Ruby-throated Hummingbird is eastern North America’s sole breeding hummingbird. These brilliant, tiny, precision-flying creatures glitter like jewels in the full sun, then vanish with a zip toward the next nectar source. Feeders and flower gardens are great ways to attract these birds, and some people turn their yards into buzzing clouds of hummingbirds each summer. Enjoy them while they’re around; by early fall they’re bound for Central America, with many crossing the Gulf of Mexico in a single flight." (Source: www.allaboutbirds.org)

 

This particular girl, named "Myrtle" by my daughters, takes a perch in a Crape Myrtle tree in order to defend the feeder placed near our back patio from other Hummers. From early morning until dusk, she zips around our back yard, chasing other Hummingbirds, drinks in lots of nectar, and perches, waiting to do it all over again, and again.
