Our Open Admission Policy: GCAC is an “open admission” shelter. “Open Admission” means that we are required to accept all stray dogs and cats that come into our care. As an “Open Admission” shelter, we do not turn away any dog or cat based on their age, breed, health, behavior, or aggressive tendencies. We also accept dogs and cats surrendered to us by their legal owners when space is available. Dogs and cats who are surrendered to us directly by their owners must be current on rabies vaccination in accordance with Glynn County Ordinance.

Our Online Pet Adoption Application

Save time and fill out our Online Pet Adoption Application by clicking here! We will have it waiting at the shelter with you when you visit the pet(s) you're considering adopting. 

All dogs and cats will be spayed/neutered prior to going home with an adopter. Our adoption fee is $50 and includes sterilization surgery, all vaccinations, deworming, microchipping and tests for heartworm (dogs) or FIV/FeLV (cats).


Our surgery schedule is booked through October due to the number of applications already received! Thanks to a grant from the Bissell Pet Foundation, we have a grant to provide dog and cat spay/neuter surgeries for Glynn County residents. Proof of residency required. Limit of 3 pets per household/address.
