The Perry Animal Control is run by the City of Perry. Animals that are strays or animals that are part of a cruelty, neglect, or an abandoned case are placed at the shelter for a minimum of 7 working days. This gives any potential owner time to reclaim their animal. We do not accept personal pets!!!!! Once animals in the animal control facility have passed their 7 day hold, they are evaluated. We want to be totally familiar with the behavior of each and every animal before they go to a new home. Once they have passed the evaluation, each animal is fully vetted up to their age including vaccinations, deworming, microchip, and sterilization. They are then put up for adoption at the shelter. They are posted on the internet and taken to Petmsart in Warner Robins on Saturdays for our routine adoption day.

The volunteers and foster homes of the FOPAS (Friends of Perry Animal Shelter) strive to help ALL animals in need...not just ones from the animal control facility. When foster homes are available, we try and help other animal control facilities when they are full or having a hard time placing animals. Its a second chance for them to be adopted out. The FOPAS (Friends of Perry Animal Shelter) also provides an "Adoption Assistance" program for those people who need to place their personal animals in another home or for those people that have found stray animals and do not want them placed in an animal control facility. With adoption assistance, you are allowed to bring the animal/animals to our adoption day on Saturdays in Warner Robins. We require that each animal be vetted up to its age- shots and deworming must be current. If interested in adoption assistance please contact us via email.

Other services provided

Financial Assistance for rabies vaccination, sterilization, and microchipping. We have limited resources per month, so if you are interested, please contact the animal shelter at 478-988-2888 or by email at When adopting from FOPAS (Friends of Perry Animal Shelter), we provide routine shots and de-worming up to the age of adoption, rabies vaccination, microchip, and spay/neuter. Our adoption fee ranges from $150-$250 for dogs and $100.00 for cats. These fees cover the cost of the vet bill and in turn brings money into the animal shelter that helps with animal heart-worm treatments, surgeries, and any other extreme medical needs our adoptable animals may have. Also, take in to consideration that when you adopt from ANY rescue of shelter in the state of Georgia that you are required by law to have your animal spayed/neutered and have a rabies vaccination. Routine sterilizations at any veterinary office starts out at $100 and that is only for the surgery, not the shots,vaccinations, etc. so if you were to compare the cost of all the medical essentials from the animal shelter and those from a veterinarians office, you would see that adopting is a REALLY good deal because you are actually SAVING money on future vet bills.
