What should I do if my dog gets lost?

We recommend that you come to the Animal Shelter at 125 Buddy Christian Way and determine if the dog is here first. If not, Animal Services can take a detailed lost report that we can use to identify the dog if it is brought in to us later. 

The Athens Banner-Herald newspaper will run a free lost dog notice in their classified advertisement section if you call 706-549-0123. 

Before posting signs, check with the Code Enforcement Division at 706-613-3790 regarding where signs may be posted.
