ADOPTIONS

Overview

Dogs and cats that are obtained by Walton County Animal Control are taken to our new animal control facility to be reunited with their families or where they can be adopted if no family claims the lost dog or cat.

Our new facility is located at:
365 Triple G Road
DeFuniak Springs, Fl 32433

The Shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm.

Families have seven days to claim their lost dog or cat. To adopt one of these animals, contact the animal shelter as soon as possible and ask to be placed on a list should the animal not be claimed by an owner.
