Our Featured Pet...

Elbert County Animal Control is a shelter located in Northeast Georgia. Many dogs and puppies are URGENTLY seeking your help. This is a kill shelter, unfortunately, and the animals need assistance as soon as possible. The shelter is rescue friendly!! Please contact the facility at ecac@elberton.net.

Elbert County Animal Control is a county facility covering Elbert County Georgia. We try to place as many animals as possible with limited time and funding. YOU can help save a life. Please act today. Help control the animal overpopulation and the resulting homeless or unwanted animals by spaying or neutering your pets!

Adopting a friend
Adopting a pet from the Animal Control Facility is simple. A small adoption fee of $20 is asked to help with the many costs of caring for the impounded animals. Currently the ECAC facility does not offer any vetting services, but does have a mobile spay/neuter clinic that comes two to three times a month and offers discount spay and neuters along with heartworm testing, rabies vaccination, and other vaccinations. Proof of spay/neuter must be provided within 30 days of adoption.

If you are out of state and interested in adopting an animal a certificate of prepayment for spay/neuter is required and proof will be required within 30 days. E-mail the shelter to confirm animal availability and their willingness to accept this based on your geographic location.
