The stray hold, at the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter, is 5 days. That allows owners a fair
amount of time to come looking for their pets. On the sixth day, the animal becomes the property of the
Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter and is offered for adoption. An animal may be pre-adopted,
however, if the owner comes forward, within the 5-day stray hold, the animal goes back to the owner. The
adoption fee is refunded at that time.

*Stray animals may be Pre-adopted before the stray hold is up. However, If an owner comes
forward before the animal is picked up by the adopter, the pet would be returned to the original
owner and the adoption fee would be returned to the adopter. When pre-adopted, the animal is
scheduled to be altered. When that is done, as long as no one has claimed the pet, the pet can
go home with the adopter.
Unfortunately, we are not able to hold animals without the adoption process being completed.
That includes the payment of the adoption fee. Adoptions are done on a first-come, first-served basis.
Applications can be emailed and payment can be made via phone and at
Otherwise, we can not hold animals. After the adoption fee has been paid, arrangements will be made to
have the pet altered. No pets leave without being altered.

Don't adopt just because you feel sorry for bolt!
Adoption should be a well thought out decision, it's a lifetime commitment.
