Please note: Although they share the same address and similar names, Liberty County Animal Control and Liberty County Humane Shelter are NOT the same entity!
Animal Control is run by the county and all animals are at high risk of euthanasia (regardless of breed or temperament) as they are only allowed a brief period of time to be claimed.
Also, Liberty County Animal Control is not an adoption facility. They are only able to release to licensed rescues. However, no one wants to see an animal die unnecessarily, so if you would like to adopt one of their animals, they are often able to set it up with a rescue. This teamwork spares lives :)
Some breeds (such as Pit Bulls) are adopted out more cautiously, and depending on the rescue the adoption is done through, there may even be a home check to be certain the animal will not be used for the atrocities of fighting (which is a problem in this area), breeding (all animals must be spayed or neutered - no exceptions), or other unacceptable purposes.
Before you ask:
Animals that find themselves at AC do not receive veterinary check-ups or care such as vaccinations. In most cases, very little is known about their history since most of them were picked up as strays.
In most cases, we do not know if they are housetrained, good with other species of animals, or good with children or little old ladies. If I do know, I do my best to include it in their listing.
Also, the majority of these listings are posted by a volunteer (me) who does not work for AC, but does this in her spare time to try to help get animals saved. I do have a full time job and it may take me a couple of days to find answers to questions you ask me. Please be patient, as I will do my very best to get it to you before euthanasia occurs.
