Hall Co. Animal Shelter moves to modified intake procedures during new HVAC installation

Hall County Animal Shelter

The Hall County Animal Shelter will be modifying its intake procedures beginning Monday, Dec. 11 while the facility has a new HVAC system installed.

 “A new HVAC system is a much-needed upgrade to our facility,” Hall County Animal Services Director Trey Garcia said. “Not only will this new system provide adequate ventilation and fresh air throughout our building, but it will also contribute to a greater quality of care for our animals by providing higher air quality, less odor and a reduction in the spread of disease.”

The HVAC installation will temporarily cause the Animal Shelter to close portions of its facility so that the equipment can be installed. Since there will be limited space while the work is being completed, the shelter will only accept priority calls for its animal intakes, which includes animals that are injured, pose a threat to public safety (aggression, rabies, bite cases, injuries) and/or are in extenuating circumstances (evictions, welfare/hoarding cases, jail/hospital cases, etc.).

“We will continue to work toward our goal of providing excellent local government services to our community while we are limited on our intake services and will help those in need find alternative resources for animals that would typically be brought into our facility,” Garcia said. “This is a temporary operational change that is abundantly necessary to improve our shelter.”

The HVAC project is expected to be completed in May, given there are no delays in materials or installation.

The Hall County Animal Shelter will offer pet adoptions and vaccines like normal while the HVAC work is underway. For a list of current adoptable pets, visit the animal shelter online.

The following resources may be referenced during the modified intake period, or call the shelter for more information at 678-450-1587:

Found Animals

  • Be sure to check Facebook for missing animals in your area. There are several “lost and found” groups that post missing and found pets. Websites such as Petfinder, Nextdoor, Fido Finder, Petco Love Lost, and Craiglist are also helpful resources for reporting lost and found pets.  
  • Report a found animal to Hall County Animal Services, and shelter staff will enter your information and the animal’s information into a database. The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia will reach out once there is space available at its facility to take in the animal.
  • Post flyers in the vicinity of where the animal was found. Lost Dogs Georgia, in partnership with Pet FBI, will create a flyer suitable for print and online sharing, as well as create an online report and provide additional support for you.

Owner Surrenders

  • Owner surrenders may call Hall County Animal Services, and staff will enter your information and the pet’s information into a database. The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia will reach out once there is space available at its facility to take in the animal.

Missing Animals

  • Be sure to call the Hall County Animal Shelter at 678-450-1587 on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to see if your animal has been reported to shelter staff. 
  • Post your lost pet on Facebook/Facebook groups that are specific to your area, and report your missing pet to websites such as Petfinder, Nextdoor, Fido Finder, Petco Love Lost, and Craiglist.
  • Post flyers in the vicinity of where the animal was lost. Lost Dogs Georgia, in partnership with Pet FBI, will create a flyer suitable for print and online sharing, as well as create an online report and provide additional support for you.
  • If your pet is microchipped, ensure your pet’s microchip is up-to-date by calling the microchip company.
  • Call your local vets, clinics, shelters and Humane Societies to report your missing animal and to check if your pet has been brought into any nearby facilities.

  • Call Hall County Animal Services at 678-450-1587 during normal business hours.
