Animal Control Staff

Hall County's Animal Control enforces Hall County's Animal Services Ordinances and assists other county and state departments with ordinance enforcements and other animal-related issues.

The staff of 6 Animal Control Officers and 1 Supervisor addresses all issues related to:

  • Bite cases
  • Cruelty investigations
  • Loose or uncontrolled domesticated animals
  • Potentially dangerous and dangerous animals
  • Rabies control

Officers are on duty 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Hall County / 911 Central Communications dispatches calls after hours and an officer on call will respond when immediate assistance is required.

Animal Control Officers are much more than just dog catchers. They care deeply for the animals they rescue and many times will personally foster animals until they return to good health and are adopted.
