Animals in Need
The Heard County Animal Control Center does its best to care for every animal that's picked up, though there are limitations as to how long the Control Center can house these poor animals. 

The stray and relinquished dogs and cats of Heard County are in desperate need of adopters, funding, and rescue. Animals in the care of the Animal Control Center are, sadly, only guaranteed three days, unless they receive reprieve. Those who are relinquished by their owners or are feral are not guaranteed any amount of time.

That said, the Heard County Animal Control Center is rescue-friendly and always welcoming responsible adopters. If you are interested in adopting a dog or cat, please pay us a visit or check out the following Facebook pages:
