Animal Control

Welcome to the Glynn County Animal Control department. We are tasked with: enforcement of Glynn County Ordinance Chapter 2-4 - Domestic Animals; providing 24 hour a day/7 days a week response to requests for service from Glynn County residents; the management of stray dogs and cats in our community; humane sheltering of dogs and cats in protective custody; humane sheltering and rehoming of as many homeless dogs and cats as we can humanely and legally house; the education of the public on responsible pet ownership.

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. 


We currently have appointments available in 2 spay/neuter programs: Our shelter and Island Animal Hospital. Both programs are funded by grants from different organizations for helping low-income families spay/neuter their dogs and/or cats. All applicants must reside in Glynn County. A valid government issued ID (I.e. drivers license) is required and a document with proof of income may be required. For more information, call 554-7501 or email Applications are available online (link below) or on paper at our shelter. The programs have deadlines of October and November 2019.
