Make a Donation to the Joey Fund
Donations to this fund helps provide medical care beyond what we can offer at the shelter. Animals with serious and often life threatening conditions that require diagnostic tests, special treatments, blood work, X-rays and surgeries to repair broken bones have all been paid for with funds donated to the Joey Fund.
• You shop through AmazonSmile, and Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice: listed as Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter
• AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know…same products, same prices, same service.
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter to receive donations before you begin shopping. They will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation. The percentage is off the purchase price minus any rebates and excluding shipping and taxes.

If this is your dog, please come to the shelter asap. You will need to provide proof of ownership and a current Rabies tag.
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 WWW.PayPal.me/TSCHS.
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.
The benefit of the crate pads is that it is easier to wash them in comparison to regular pet beds. We like for our pets to have something soft to lie on in their kennels, and the mats are just the best way for us to go.
We can use all sizes! The itty bitties love them and so do our bigger seniors!
Also, if we get 5 bags of cow hooves, every dog currently in our shelter will get one! That would be a lot of happy dogs! The hooves will keep them busy a super long time!
