If you would like to adopt a dog or cat, the Andalusia Animal Shelter will love to help you out. The shelter is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. and is located at the old fairgrounds on Hwy 84 West. It is operated by the Andalusia Animal Control Unit, a division of the Andalusia Police Department. Adoption fees vary from adult animals to puppies and kittens. Fees range between $20-$30. You can call the shelter at 222-8705.
You can do your part to control the pet population in our area by simply having your pet spayed or neutered.
What do I do about the stray animals?
- The Andalusia Police Department has an animal control officer who can usually assist with most domestic animal problems. We most often catch dogs and cats, and have also caught other more exotic animals. Call or come by the department and talk with the animal control officer about any problems you are having.
What happens to those animals that are caught by the department?
- All domestic animals are taken to the Andalusia Police Department Animal Shelter for adoption.
What about squirrels, skunks, and opossums and like animals?
- The Department does not control wild animals. If left alone most wild animals will move along. If you are having a constant problem with wild animals check to see if there may be food left out or some other reason that the animals are returning. If the animals cause continuing problems the Alabama Wildlife Resources Officers are contacted to help evaluate the situation.
