Cobb’s Animal Services shelter is running dangerously above capacity.  Turn-ins are up 18% this year over last, which means the 321 animals in the shelter puts us at 123% of capacity. 

1,026 more animals have come into the shelter this year than at this time in 2022.

There are many reasons why more animals are coming in, but if you have been thinking of adopting a forever friend, now is the time to call (770) 499-4136 to book an appointment. Please help us!
