Mission Statement  

The mission of the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Animal Control Unit is to enforce the state laws and county ordinances pertaining to animal control and management; educate the community in responsible pet ownership; and provide for the housing and care of homeless animals and coordinate their adoption with local rescue organizations, or their humane euthanization when adoption is not possible.

We are open to the public on most holidays with only few exceptions: Christmas, Thankgiving Day, July 4th, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. The Animal Control Officers are available for "emergency" call outs only and the shelter is closed to the public.
