We envision the day when:

Help Us Help Your Pet

In order for us to provide quality service there are certain things we need including: 

Callback phone # in the event we have questions.  Common questions include,  breed, color, size, collar, or specific identifying marks. 

Address of the resident that the complaint is being made against, if applicable, or good description of the property with road name you need service on. When giving a residential description please include color, vehicles in the drive way or anything else that may help to find the location. 

A general statement of the reason for your call.

Our Service Area

We all strive to provide quality service for our community.  Our officers cover 519.05 square miles (Liberty County) and serve a population of over 63,000 residents.  Please note that we DO NOT offer service within Fort Stewart as they maintain their own animal control facility.

We are a rescue friendly facility.  We have a small facility with many stray animals due to our transient area.  In order to improve the quality of life for the many animals received by us, we rely on rescues to find "fur-ever" homes for as many of them as possible. Please visit Liberty Humane Shelter, Carpathia Paws, and Mom's Transport for rescues.  

We now accept VISA and Master Card!!!  These are the preferred methods of payment.  However, if you must use cash, you must have exact change.... we do NOT provide change of any kind.  So please find out your fees before coming in with cash payment.
