The DeKalb County Animal Services shelter remains open with enhanced safety protocols for our teams and visitors. DeKalb County Animal Services Officers will continue to respond to calls for service. For more information about the outbreak, including how you can support animals recovering in our care, please visit our FAQ page.
The DeKalb County Animal Shelter is out of housing space. We’re asking our community for help with stray pets so we can focus on emergency and critical situations. Animals in need will not and should not be abandoned. If you have found a healthy pet, please fill out a Found Pet Report.
If you need other assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Response time is delayed due to incredibly high volumes of animals and people in need of assistance.
RABIES ALERT: On November 2, 2021, a RACOON was captured in the 2300 Block of North Eiffel Ct in Decatur that later tested positive for rabies.
