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. We try to hold animals as long as possible, but we are an open door shelter and can frequently run out of space rapidly. 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. Requesting to hold one animal longer may result in another being euthanized sooner. 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.

As Friends of WCAC is run by volunteers, Walton County Animal Control does not have control over, nor is responsible, for the postings made on the Facebook page. The most accurate information is posted on waltonpets.net. Requests on the Facebook page to hold animals do not come directly to the shelter. All inquiries must be made directly to the shelter.
A Note on Sponsorships and Rescues: as we do not solicit the sponsorships nor personally know many of the sponsors, the shelter cannot guarantee the delivery of any donation. We transfer to GA Licensed Rescues or 501c3 out-of-state rescues. We trust that the GA Department of Agriculture is inspecting the groups they license, and that the IRS is holding accountable those groups it grants 501c3 status. We are not responsible for any misappropriation of donations as no funds ever go through the shelter's hands.
