Glynn County Animal Services Urgently Needs Your Help!

Everyone has a part in this rescue mission! For an appointment to adopt or to reclaim your lost animal, please call (912) 544-7501.

Glynn County Animal Service's has had to pause accepting owner surrenders and healthy stray animals because more dogs and cats need help than we have the resources to house. We are in urgent need of adopters and fosters as more pets need rescue every day. A local surge in COVID-19 cases has simultaneously forced us to reduce face-to-face contact for the safety of our community and our staff members.

“The number of animals needing care at our shelter is increasing steadily, but our adoption and foster numbers are not keeping pace. We're also competing for transport opportunities with thousands of other shelters across the south. Everyone is overwhelmed right now,” said GCAS Manager, Tiffani Hill. “As a result, as soon as a kennel or cage opens up, another animal immediately takes the space. Our shelter is fills up faster than we can rehome pets, creating an unstainable gap in lifesaving. If we do not get help from our community now, we will be forced to make difficult space decisions in the coming days. If you’ve been on the fence about saving a life, now is the time to act.”

Ways to Help:

Citizens

  • Adopt: Make room for one more.
  • Foster: Make space until shelters make it through this crisis.
  • Sponsor: Pay adoption fees for other families to make room for one more.
  • Help friendly lost pets find their way back home instead of taking them to shelters.

Businesses and Organizations

  • Be an ambassador for animals in need. Foster an animal for a week and work with your colleagues and customers to find your foster animal a home.
  • Sponsor adoption fees for animals.

Veterinarians

  • Help with the backlog of animals awaiting spay/neuter surgeries due to the veterinary shortage. 

Rescue Groups

  • Take in a shelter animal that typically does not fit your criteria, such as an at-risk breed or large dog.
  • Use social media to help spread the word about the crisis

Fellow Shelters and Rescues

  • Significantly reduce adoption fees.
  • Put managed moratoriums on intake, taking in emergency cases only.
  • Reach out to out-of-state organizations for transfer; fast-track the most adoptable animals to make space for others.
  • Extend operating hours/days. 
  • Bring in volunteer support to help in new ways.

Media

  • Heavily promote this campaign as earned media. We are financially strapped trying to save these animals.
  • Run Public Service Announcements.
  • Contact Glynn County Animal Control for stories of our successes.
*Modeled after initiatives created by No Kill South Carolina, South Carolina Animal Care & Control Association, and Dallas Animal Services
