Forsyth County Animal Shelter opened in 2014

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter will now accept stray drop-offs and owner surrenders Saturdays, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Stray drop-offs and owner surrenders will still be offered weekdays Tuesday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“After receiving requests by residents that the shelter accept stray drop-offs and owner surrenders beyond our weekday hours, we added the staff support to begin providing this service on Saturday mornings,” said acting Animal Shelter Manager Steve Zaring. “We thank the community for embracing the county’s animal shelter and considering the shelter when adopting a cat or dog.”

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter, located just off of GA 400 at 4065 County Way in northern Forsyth County, provides animal adoptions Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on the Forsyth County Animal Shelter, call (678) 965-7187 or visit Residents may also connect with the shelter on their Facebook page,
