ADOPTABLE ANIMALS
The following are some of the animals available for adoption at Walton County Animal Control.  

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 WCAC on Facebook is run by volunteers who watch waltonpets.net and make updates as they can. The shelter does not monitor the postings there, 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
