Our Open Admission Policy
Glynn County Animal Control is an “open admission” shelter. “Open Admission” means that we accept all stray dogs and cats that need shelter and care. We also accept dogs and cats surrendered to us by their legal owners. We do not turn away dogs or cats based on age, breed, health, behavior or any other characteristic. Glynn County Animal Control is the only "open admission" animal shelter in our community.
Whenever possible, we work with limited admission, restricted admission and breed- or species-specific rescue groups and shelters all over the country to try to send homeless pets from here to places where they may have a better chance of being adopted. These shelters and rescues notify us when they have open kennels and cages and we have dogs or cats available here who that group feels they can easily rehome. Volunteer drivers help us transport shelter pets who are accepted by other shelters and rescue groups to their new location. (photo: a group of dogs & cats leaves for a new life through a shelter in Florida). We post dogs who are eligible for transport on the Doobert website (www.doobert.com - beginning January 2, 2020).
The overwhelming pet overpopulation problem in our community is tragic. It can only be solved if we all commit to responsible pet ownership together! Spay/Neuter/Microchip/Adopt!
