Animal Control

The Animal Control Section of the Perry Police Department, managed by the uniformed Patrol Division, manages and protects the animal population of Perry. We enforce the animal ordinances that protect the health and welfare of the citizens of Perry and we strive to place as many unwanted animals as possible into suitable homes.


The Perry Animal Shelter is located behind the City of Perry’s Maintenance Facility at the intersection of Ball Street and Tucker Road, next to Tolleson Lumber Company. The Shelter provides lost and found information, animal care education, and pet adoption services. Animal Control operates daily from 8:00am until 5:00pm, Monday through Sunday (excluding holidays).


The Perry Animal Shelter offers animals for adoption year round. To adopt a pet you can stop by the shelter Monday through Friday, (excluding holidays) between 8:00am and 5:00pm or you may call (478) 988-2888 or (478) 338-0199. In cooperation with the shelter, the Friends of the Perry Animal Shelter (FOPAS) also have pets for adoption at Pets Mart located on Watson Blvd, in Warner Robins on Saturday. There is an adoption fee and you can call the shelter for current rates.
