Animal Services Facility

Construction is underway for Fulton County’s new 50,000-square-foot Animal Services Facility, projected to open in the fall of 2023.

“Fulton County is a world-class county, and we need a world-class animal shelter,” said Chairman Robb Pitts. “Animal services are a high priority for our residents. The unanimous vote for this project shows that this is also a priority for the Board of Commissioners.”

The new facility, located on Fulton Industrial Boulevard, was approved in 2020 by a unanimous vote of the Board of Commissioners. It is financed primarily through Fulton County Urban Redevelopment Authority Bonds, with a portion paid through capital improvement funds from user municipalities.
