Do you want to add a new pet to your family?
Make sure you are making an educated decision.  This is a family member you will have for the next 10 to 25 years.  Choosing a new animal for your household is not something you should do for a gift or on the spur of the moment.  Make sure you really want to housebreak a new dog or teach a new kitten not to climb your curtains.

If you are interested in adopting, please call 770-428-5678. One of our advisors will assist you and determine if we have what you may be looking for as our website photographs may not be up to date at all times. We can then work with you on scheduling an adoption appointment.

We screen potential adopters to make sure our pets will be a good match for your family and visa versa. New adoptive dog owners will also need a home/fence check before they can take their new dog home.


DOGS:
We typically house small breed dogs. The donation for new ownership of dogs/puppies is $200 which does not fully cover costs already incurred by the Humane Society of Cobb County.  All of our dogs or puppies will be altered before they can be adopted.  They will have as many vaccines as we can give them for the time they have spent here.  If the dog is over six months old it will have been heart worm tested negative and be on preventative.  All of our pets are micro chipped and are treated with flea preventative.

CATS:
The donation for new ownership of cats/kittens is $125.00 which does not fully cover costs already incurred by the Humane Society of Cobb County.  All of our cats and kittens (10 weeks and up) will be altered before they are adopted.  If you would like a kitten younger than 10 weeks old, we can refer you to other resources. Our cats or kittens will have as many vaccines as we can give them for the time they have spent here.  They are all tested negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV, and will have been micro chipped.

IMPORTANT LOST & FOUND INFORMATION PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Please check with our lost and found to see if someone has reported a missing pet. Leave a message on our recorder at (770)428-LOST. Click here to fill out a form to email us.

Lost or Found Report

If You Have Lost a Pet Your First Response May Save Your Pet’s Life.

  1. Put flyers up immediately at major intersections. As soon as possible, post them at the veterinary clinics, boarding kennels, groomers, and the emergency veterinary clinics in the surrounding areas. Make sure your phone number is large enough to be read by the driver of a car. Keep it simple. Offer a reward (do not mention an amount) or state that the pet needs medication. Put flyers at every exit/entrance in subdivisions (yours and others in your area). Make sure you know the rules for posting signs so they aren’t removed. Stores that sell pet food, boarding kennels, etc. may also display your flyer. If your subdivision has a community bulletin board, put the lost pet information & your phone number on it. Check your postings regularly and replace them if they have been removed or cannot be easily read. It is helpful if you date them. Be a good neighbor - remove the flyers when you find your pet.
  1. Call the Humane Society of Cobb County (770-428-LOST, press option 1, then option 4) & list your lost pet on the “Home to Home” Lost/Found database. Someone who has found your pet may have already called in a report. You can leave a message anytime, include your name & phone number (please say number twice), describe the pet (i.e. dog/cat, color, size, collar/tag/chip, & special needs), tell us when & where your pet was seen last. This service matches lost/found pets that are in homes.
  1. Ask for help. Make sure your neighbors and postman have your phone number and description of your missing pet. Ask them to look around their property for your pet with a flashlight (eyes reflect the light) when it is quiet or dark. Look under bushes, in crawl spaces, under porches/decks, and under cars (cats can hide in wheel wells and under the hood), in garages/sheds/ and up trees. Ask about work trucks that may have left doors open while on the job. Call the companies to see if they found your pet. Ask anyone who feeds outdoor animals to watch for your pet.
  1. If you are pet sitting, call the owner immediately to find out about possible hiding places or places the pet may have been found before. The owner may return quickly & help find the pet.
  1. Pets come back to familiar scents. Keep something like a cat’s litter box, shoes, scented candles, etc. near the place your pet might come back to if it picks up the scent in the wind. Keep a light on at night and provide a safe place for your pet to stay until you can find it. Check the safe place frequently. Frightened pets may return at night when things are quiet.
  1. Go to your county’s animal control shelter or humane society within 48 hours to look for your pet and go back often. Visit surrounding county shelters too. Ask if they maintain a list of deceased pets or a list of stray pets at clinics for medical care. Also ask to check the isolation areas. Injured animals, pets that have bitten someone, etc. may be there. Find out how long they hold strays so you know how often you must go to check for your pet. Leave a flyer or fill out a lost report. For Cobb County Animal Control information call 770-499-4136 or for other shelter numbers call the Humane Society of Cobb County 770-428-LOST, option 6.
  1. Run a lost pet ad in the newspapers. Watch the found ads in the newspapers.
  1. Notify the veterinarian who vaccinated your pet and the microchip company lost pet service.
  1. Open a can of pet food and tap it with a kitchen knife or spoon (if your pet likes canned food) or shake a bag of dry food, while walking & calling your pet. Stop often & listen for faint responses.
  1. Dogs: If they escaped through an open gate, keep the gate open so they can re-enter. If you walk your dog often, concentrate on those areas where your dog is used to being walked and where his scent is. Don’t forget a wild animal, thunder, etc. may have frightened your pet out of its normal territory. So, expand your search as far as possible.
  1. Cats: Cats will generally stay close to home and find a hiding spot. Put it’s litter box outside your door, sometimes they can pick up the smell of their box, which will draw them home.



 If You Have Found a Pet Your First Response May Reunite The Pet With Its Family

 

  1. Safety first!! Never attempt to capture a pet that is showing signs of aggression! If it is showing aggression, call your local Animal Control (look under your county listings) or call 911.

 

  1. If you have the pet in your possession, keep it away from other pets in your home. Do not let children handle it. It may not like other pets, children or may pass disease to you, your child or other pets. Use extreme caution! You do not know this pet or its temperament. If the circumstance allows and you are able to house it for a few days, you can do the following things to try and find the owner.

 

  1. Put flyers up immediately; (and watch for lost flyers) make sure the phone number is large enough to see from the road. Keep it simple and do not put all the information on it. You want them to tell you if it is male or female or if it has distinguishing features. In subdivisions put them at every exit/entrance. Make sure you know the rules for posting signs so they aren’t removed. If your subdivision has a community signage or bulletin board, ask them to put the information on it. Put flyers at major intersections near the area, and in veterinary clinics in the area. Check your postings regularly and replace them if they have been removed. It is helpful if you date them.

 

  1. Check with neighbors, the postman, and local veterinarians. They may be familiar with a neighborhood pet that you are not.

 

  1. Call the Humane Society of Cobb County and file a found report (770-428-LOST, option 2) & list your lost pet on the “Home to Home” Lost/Found database. Someone who has lost a pet may have already called in a report. You can leave a message anytime, include your name & phone number (please say number twice), describe the pet (i.e. dog/cat, color, size, collar/tag/chip, & special needs), and tell us when & where the pet was found. You can also E-mail the information to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . This service matches lost/found pets that are in homes.

 

  1. Report the description with your county animal control shelter or humane society as soon as possible. Also notify surrounding county shelters. Most animal control phone numbers are listed under the county listings. For hours & general information call Cobb County Animal Control 770-499-4136 or for other shelter numbers, call the Humane Society of Cobb County at 770-428-LOST, option 6 (for other information please listen to the menu).

 

  1. Run a found ad in the newspapers. (Generally they are free.) Watch the lost ads in the newspapers.

 

  1. Take the pet to a veterinary clinic, humane society or animal control shelter to have it scanned for a microchip. Call ahead to ensure they have a universal scanner that will identify different brands of chips. They will be able to give you the phone number to the microchip company to call and see whom the pet is registered to if it is microchipped.

 

  1. If you are unable to contain, keep, or care for a pet you have found while you search for the owner, the pet should be taken to the animal control or humane society in the county in which you found it. Each county is individual and policies may vary. Keep flyers up in the area where the pet was found for several days and refer calls to the place where you left the pet.
