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 Animal Control Facility is at 480 Ball St., Perry, GA 31069, located behind the City of Perry’s Maintenance Facility at the intersection of Ball Street and Tucker Road.  Animal Control operates daily from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday (excluding holidays).  The office phone number is 478-988-2888 or cell number is 478-338-0199.


The Animal Control Facility does not handle adoption services at their location. The Animal Control Facility works with FOPAS or any other licensed agency in order to adopt an animal.  In cooperation with the shelter, the Friends of the Perry Animal Shelter (FOPAS) also has pets for adoption at their facility located at 204 Kellwood Drive in Perry.

Education & Outreach

The Animal Control Facility provides humane education and responsible pet ownership presentations to schools and other organizations. At these presentations, our Animal Control Officers emphasize such topics as public safety, dog bite prevention, responsible pet ownership and the humane care of animals. The facility provides lost and found information, animal care education, and pet adoption services.
