Animal Facts

Dogs and cats out number humans in this country at a ratio of about 6 to 1. In one hour approximately 415 humans are born and 2,750 dogs/cats are born.

Only six out of 10 puppies/kittens and one out of of 10 adult dogs/cats find a home. Pet overpopulation is a serious and growing problem in the United States.  It is estimated that between 10 to 20 million companion animals are unwanted and put to death every year.  Therefore, it is our responsibility to educate the public, including children, about the effects of pet overpopulation and help them to understand that spaying and/or neutering of pets is essential if we hope to eliminate this senseless killing.

Our Mission

Whitfield County Animal Facilities objective is to provide citizens a solution to unwanted and stray animals.

While performing this task it is our goal to provide a controlled answer to an uncertain future that faces both animals and those persons finding themselves having to utilize our facilities services
