Surrendering Your Pet


We understand that sometimes situations arise in which you are no longer able to care for your companion animal.  As a last resort, you may surrender your pet to the City of LaGrange Animal Shelter, which is an open admission shelter.  The LaGrange – Troup County Humane Society cannot guarantee that a pet will be transferred to our care and does not oversee intakes.

  • First and foremost, you should reach out to friends and family to find a temporary or permanent home for your pet.  Ideally, place the pet with someone you know.
  • Use social media to get the word out. Be sure to ask for references before allowing someone to adopt your pet.  Ask all sorts of questions about the care that your pet will receive.
  • Search for breed specific rescues

If you are to find a stray animal, please contact the City of LaGrange Animal Shelter at (706) 298-3606 or take found animal to 1390 Orchard Hill Road in LaGrange, Georgia. The LaGrange – Troup County Humane Society can not take in ANY stray animals; therefore, ALL stray animals must be taken directly to City of LaGrange Animal Shelter.
