Sign the Petition to

Jock Connell and Pat Graham, Barrow County Commissioners

We, the undersigned, petition to make positive changes to Barrow County Animal Control.  We demand a volunteer program be put in place and followed through with to allow citizens to help socialize, train and make the animals more adoptable.  Volunteers can temperament test the animals giving more information to adopters and rescues, making them more adoptable as well as fundraise for the facility.  A volunteer program was announced by Officer Harper in April 2013 but no volunteers are allowed still.

A fence needs to be placed around the building to secure the animals as well as individual areas for interacting with the animals. Volunteers can work with staff to fundraise for the fencing.

 A vet fund is also required to be put in place for the animals that need medical attention, ending the suffering of animals within the facility.

We request more convenient hours for visitors.  Either Saturday hours or staying open later.  More flexible visiting hours as well as staying open during posted hours will boost visitors to the shelter.  People who work regular hours are unable to visit, costing animal control potential rescues and adoptions.

How this will help

The animals at this facility deserve a second chance and some compassion while at the facility.  Under Officer Harper and without the use of volunteers they have little to none. We need your help...

The animals at this facility deserve a second chance and some compassion while at the facility.  Under Officer Harper and without the use of volunteers they have little to none. We need your help to get the attention of our County Commissioners.  So far all of our comments, concerns and complaints have gone unnoticed and ignored.
