Pickens County Animal Shelter Adoption Policy Clarification
8/23/2017 ~ by Tucker Green, Pickens County Government
The Pickens County Animal Shelter does not discriminate against, or ban any breed of animal. Upon entry to the animal shelter, animals are assessed on how they interact with humans, and other animals, as well as for their temperament. If the animal is assessed to be no danger to other animals, or humans the animal is cleared for adoption.
Animals can be adopted from the Pickens County Animal Shelter in various ways: in county adoption, out of county adoption, or shelter/animal rescue transfers. In cases where an animal does not meet the expectations of a temperament test, the animal can still be transferred to another shelter or animal rescue. The only animals that are euthanized are those declared “vicious” by the Department of Public Health, or in certain medical cases.
The Pickens County Animal Shelter upholds the highest standards, and is proud to be the link between so many wonderful animals, and their future families. All citizens are encouraged to visit the Pickens County Animal Shelter: adopt, donate, volunteer, or just stop to say “hello”.
The shelter is open Tuesday thru Friday from 12pm-5pm and on Saturday from 11am-3pm. The Pickens County Animal Shelter is located at 3563 Camp Road, Jasper, Georgia.
