WALTON COUNTY, Fla— The Walton County Animal Shelter will reopen our lobby beginning Tuesday, June 9, 2020.

Only two people will be permitted in the lobby at a time and hand sanitizer stations have been placed in convenient locations throughout the shelter. In addition, stickers will be placed on the floor of the lobby to allow for proper physical distancing during your visit. The lobby will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized at the beginning and end of each business day as well as throughout the day as visitors enter and exit the building.

Disposable masks will be provided (one per person) for those who wish to wear a mask during their visit.

In attempt to minimize traffic in and out of the shelter, Walton County Animal Services encourages citizens to continue to request an animal control officer to pick up stray or lost animals in addition to pets being surrendered to the shelter. To request an animal control officer, please call (850) 892-8682.

We look forward to seeing you and are committed to meeting any needs you may have in a safe and thoughtful manner.
