About Gilmer County Animal Shelter

Gilmer County Animal Shelter offers dog adoptions to area veterans through its partnership with Pets for Patriots.

In addition to pet adoption, Gilmer County Animal Shelter investigates animal cruelty and neglect complaints, and enforces state and local animal-related laws. Volunteers at Ellijay Paws In Need collaborate with the shelter to list dogs available for adoption. Individuals who are interested to adopt cats are encouraged to visit the shelter while a project to list cats is planned.

Gilmer County Animal Shelter welcomes monetary and in-kind donations; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience become one of their valued volunteers or fosters.
