Henry County Animal Care & Control

Information for Rescue Groups

Dear Rescue Worker -

At Henry County Animal Care and Control, one of our goals is to see that every adoptable animal that comes into our shelter is either reunited with its family or adopted into a new, loving forever home. One way to help us to achieve this is to partner with rescue organizations. Our shelter is very “rescue friendly” and encourages those associated with rescues to visit us in person or on line at www.petfinder.com to find pets currently housed with us that you would be willing to take under your organization’s wing.

In Georgia, all groups (both in-state and out-of-state) that rescue animals from Georgia are required to be licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. For information on obtaining a license, please contact the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s Animal Protection Division at (404) 656-4914.

In order for our department to transfer animals to your rescue organization, we must have a current copy of your license on file. In addition to a copy of your license, the Ga. Dept of Agriculture requires the license holder to provide us with information regarding those in your organization who are allowed use the license. A new form has been designed for this purpose and you may download it here Adobe Acrobat. The license holder should print out the form, complete it and submit it to us along with a current copy of the license.

If you have specific questions regarding our rescue procedures or the rescue process, please contact us.
