Opie is a mild mannered little guy. He is only a little more than a year old. He is heartworm positive, but he is on the slow kill protocol, so we hope that he is negative very soon!
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.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
