Chatham County Animal Services is hosting an in-person and virtual public engagement meeting to discuss potential changes to the Animal Services Ordinance and gather input for strategic direction.

Chatham County Animal Services enforces the County’s animal control ordinances and operates the County’s open admission animal shelter. Animal Service officers respond to many complaints including nuisance complaints, neglect, bite reports, and stray dogs. In 2021, over 2300 cats and dogs were either impounded by officers or brought in by citizens of Chatham County. These animals were cared for by the shelter staff and, with the help of local rescues, most of them found new homes.

Animal welfare norms are constantly changing, and Animal Services is changing with them. In doing so, we would like help from the community we serve. Chatham County Animal Services will be conducting a public meeting to discuss their services as well as services provided by others in the community.
