Columbia County Animal Services


Columbia County Animal Services receives over 5, 000 animals annually, some are released by their owners, but the majority of animals come in as stray. Less than 550 animals are reclaimed by their owners annually. Columbia County Animal Services wants to assist you in your efforts to reunite you with your pet.

Tips to help find your missing pet:

· Come to the Columbia County Animal Services shelter, during business hours, to look for your pet. The shelter is located at 1940 William Few Parkway, Grovetown Ga. 30814 and is open to the public to view animals Monday-Friday from 10:30am-4:30pm, excluding county observed holidays and weekends.

· If you call please understand that it is VERY DIFFICULT to identify a pet by description alone; therefore, it is your responsibility to come to the shelter to identify your pet.

· Visit our websites to view photos of the stray pets at our facility.

· Notify your veterinarian that your pet is missing.

· Check with pet hospitals

· Post flyers (color photos are best)

o In your neighborhood

o At local veterinarian offices

o Pet Stores

o Grooming/Boarding facilities

o Any local businesses (convenience stores, etc.) that will allow you to post one

· Place ads in local newspapers, classified magazines, and pet service or community based websites. (Most will do this for free)

· Be wary of pet recovery services, some are scams. Ask for references and check them before handing over any money for their services.

· Talk to your postal delivery person, they are usually familiar with pets in the neighborhood.

Keep looking and don’t give up. Hopefully, you will be reunited with your lost pet soon.

County ordinance requires that pets be under an owner’s control at all times. Do NOT allow pets to run loose, secure pets inside a fence area or leash walk them.

Make sure your pet ALWAYS wears its collar and tags. However…

Pets can lose collars and tags, so it is strongly recommended that you have your pet micro-chipped by Animal Services ($15 for the life of the chip, no annual fees) or your veterinarian. Micro-chipping is the only permanent form of identification. If your pet is micro-chipped, gets lost, and is picked up by Columbia County Animal Services it will be scanned and you will be contacted to retrieve your pet.
