Despite our best efforts, Chatham County's homeless animal population is growing. When we consider that one female cat and her offspring, left to breed indiscriminately, can produce 420,000 cats in 7 years, and one female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in just 6 years, we certainly see the impact our unneutered pets and strays can have on the community. We at Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Animal Control encourage owners to be responsible pet owners. Consider spaying or neutering your pet - especially if they are inside/outside pets - and keep your animals up to date on their shots and tags. Remember, feeding feral cats that are exposed to other wildlife can and does present a public safety issue.
Please, help us and your community by reducing the pet overpopulation problem.
