Pickens Animal Shelter news


A Home for the Holidays

On Saturday, Dec. 16, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., the Animal Shelter of Pickens County is waiving the adoption fee on dogs and cats.  There are many wonderful adult dogs, cats and kittens just waiting for you to provide them with the warmth of your home and hearts.  We have extra volunteers available that day to assist you with finding your “perfect match”.   Take some time to get acquainted with one of the dogs off-leash in the separate play yard or take them for a walk around the property.  Our friendly, loving cats and kittens welcome your tender touch so you can see how purrfectly they’re willing to join your family.

Our shelter pets are available for you to see online.  We have them posted on Petango.  Take a look at our website www. http://pickensanimalshelter.com/ and our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pickenscountyanimalshelter/.  You’re going to fall in love!

We are also currently conducting a “WISH LIST” supply drive and have teamed up with Presents For Pets, a new 501(c)3 organization that specifically supports donation drives benefiting homeless pets.  Look for these donation boxes located at Walmart, Kroger, Community Bank of Pickens County and Parish Lowrie State Farm.  Our suggested items are listed on each box, and there are small tear-off shopping lists that you can take with you.

In a holiday hurry?  Saturday, Dec 16, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., more volunteers will be set up to accept your supply donations at both locations of the Community Bank of Pickens County and Parish Lowrie State Farm.  To make it more convenient during the hectic holiday shopping season, you’ll be able to “drive up – drop off” your purchased donations and our volunteers will be happy to help unload them from your car.

If you are available to volunteer for the supply drive or the adoption event on Dec. 16, please call Julie at 706-273-0355.  We welcome your support.  Pickens County Animal Shelter is located at 3563 Camp Rd. Jasper, Georgia 30143.

    I truly love that this place helps so many animals however my personal experience with the management here was totally horrible. My American Eskimo was stolen and got away they picked him up at Walgreen’s in Jasper. Prior to me locating him at the shelter I searched all over sharp mountain searched the roads asking everyone on my road house by house to no avail. That’s when I called. They said they had picked up a spits that matches the description. It was my beloved Snow. I told them he’s not a spits he’s a purebred American eskimo do not nutter him. I’ll pick him up when I got my disability check. That’s when they said it would cost me $285 dollars to pick him up. Even thou he was 16 miles away from home plus being stolen. They were heartless sence I couldn’t pick him up they muttered him and had the audacity to tell me I owed for that as well. Summing it up. I lost my baby. What jerks they were. I pray no body get there loved pet end up in this place especially when it was no fault of there own. I totally despise them for this reason.
