Although the Animal Shelter works within County guidelines to care, maintain and address acquired animals, the Humane Society works closely to assist with care, maintenance, adoption and public education.

How to Adopt a Pet?
County ordinance requires a fence or some type of containment area for your new pet.
Those pets currently residing at the shelter are available any day of the week except Wednesday. Requirements are a rabies shot and a spay or neuter. This can be arranged with the vet of your choice within a certain amount of time, according to the age of the pet. A $25.00 adoption fee is charged. This fee includes a Home Again microchip and distemper shot. Many pets at the shelter are already spayed/neutered when they come into the shelter. If this is the case, you really get a bargain!
Fully-vetted foster pets are $95.00 for dogs or $75.00 cats. These pets have been rescued from the shelter by the Paulding Humane Society when their time is up, taken into temporary homes, tested for heartworms (canine) or leukemia/aids (feline), wormed, spayed or neutered, rabies and distemper shots given. This adoption amount barely covers our medical costs and goes directly back into the rescue of another endangered animal.
Give the shelter a call at 770-445-1511 to check availability or 770-443-3565 for pets currently in foster homes.
Project Catsnip's mobile spay/neuter clinic visits Paulding County once each month. Please visit www.projectcatsnip.com or phone 770-448-6806 for discount pricing information and appointment scheduling.
Microchip Information and Availability:
The Home Again microchip is a microchip about the size of a rice grain that is implanted between the shoulder blades of your pet with a syringe.
If the pet is ever lost or stolen, most shelters, veterinarians and Humane Society locations can use a wand that will read the chip and provide the information needed to reunite you and your pet.
