PLEASE KEEP IN MIND:
Sometimes the Shelter may not be opening at the exact normal time due to unforeseen circumstances that may arise with the animals or the facility, so we ask that you always call the shelter first before coming if surrendering a animal. Even with a larger facility, we still fill up very quickly. Each space is on a first come first serve basis, and we keep a high demand for them daily. If we don’t have the space available, then we can not take the animal in. So again, please always call before bringing.
SEVERE COLD WEATHER ALERT & NOTICE!!
IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! Here is our FRIENDLY REMINDER ABOUT KEEPING YOUR FURR BABIES WARM & SAFE!! Please remember to make sure your outside babies have good shelter and something to get snuggled into to stay warm and from out the weather. Use of bedding such as pine straw, hay, blankets, etc...are a MUST to be provided during these cold nights along with PROPER SHELTER TO GET IN TO...IF using a heating lamp, please be sure to check wires and have it situated far enough so will not cause any injury or harm to your animal. Also, keep check of their water supply due to there will be freezing. If your outside babies are tethered, please make sure they are able to comfortably get into their shelters and also to their water supply. REMEMBER: IT IS THE LAW FOR YOU TO PROVIDE YOUR PERSONAL ANIMALS WITH THE APPROPRIATE SHELTER FROM THE WEATHER!! YOU CAN BE PROSECUTED FOR FAILURE TO DO SO.
FOR THOSE THAT DO NOT OWN ANIMALS...remember that these homeless babies, especially cats, will find shelter from the cold in the most unusual places. Such as a recently driven vehicle with a warm engine. It's always a good idea to knock on your hood or body of car before cranking, so that you may be able to wake a sleeping cat near the engine or dog lying beneath the car, because this can cause serious injury, if not death for these animals. AGAIN...Please remember to contact Bulloch County Humane Enforcement at 912-489-6911 for any welfare concerns in regards to animals with improper shelter during these freezing temperatures.
Stay safe and warm!!Thank you from the Bulloch County Animal Shelter/Animal Control.
HERE ARE A FEW TIPS FROM THE ASPCA~
• During extremely cold weather, pets should be kept indoors.
• Don't shave your pet's coat all the way down during winter, exposed skin can easily lead to hypothermia and frostbite. If your dog is short-haired, consider getting him a coat or sweater for the winter weather.
• Never leave your animal in a car during the winter. They can act as refrigerators and can result in hypothermia.
• For more go to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)

The Bulloch County Animal Shelter & Animal Control in Statesboro, Ga has been in its new facility for approximately 5 years now. The new shelter houses 30 kennels for Feline Adoption, 18 kennels for Feline Isolation/Holding, 24 kennels for Canine Adoption and 24 kennels for Canine Isolation/Holding. This is a huge increase from the capabilities of the old facility. In addition, we can house 1- 25 feral/aggressive and sickly cats in a seperate holding area. We have also renovated part of our old shelter to be able to house sickly, aggressive or ones that need to be held for open court cases. This too gives an additional 18 kennels for dog holding.
The Shelter features a spacious waiting room, public bathrooms, two adoption rooms for future pet owners to get to know potential pets and a play yard for exercise and play time.
Just a little about us...
Donating is more than just time or money, it's peace of mind. Now you can help even the smallest animal.
