Animal Shelter

The Walker County Animal Shelter serves the North Georgia community by providing animal control and humane care for the animals that are lost, abandoned and unwanted. We strive to place every adoptable animal into good loving homes and encourage good pet guardianship through programs such as spay/neuter to help end the homeless plight of our companion animals.

Adoption Hours:
Monday through Friday - 10:00am to 4:00pm
Saturday - 8:00am to 1:00pm

We are located at 5488 North Marble Top Road next to the Walker County Landfill.

Adoption fee for dogs is $65 and $30 for cats. 

Our first Priceless Pets event was a huge success! 25 dogs and 16 cats found new homes during this event. We also had 263 visitors to the Walker County Animal Shelter over the course of the two day free adoption period.
