The new Animal Control Adoption Center located on Anvil Block Road opened in November 2016. It is a 12,018-square-foot building was designed with pet adoption in mind. It can house up to 178 animals and features a separate dog and cat area, an inside bonding room for potential adopters to meet and play with the animals, and a fenced-in outside area for animals to romp and roam with their new families. It also has a surgical suite to quickly care for incoming animals by a full-time, on staff veterinarian. This new building is equipped for field operations, but its main goal is to find animals homes.
In 2017, the original Animal Control Center Headquarters located in Jonesboro was completely upgraded, renovated and improved. It provides animals for adoption and conducting field operations. Indoor and outdoor spaces have been redesigned for the comfort and a healthy living condition for our animal guests.
These projects were funded by a combination of SPLOST and General Fund monies.
