Animal Control in the Town of Georgia is for domestic animals only.  Any other animal issues should be directed to the appropriate official below.

The Town of Georgia has a leash law and dogs are not allowed at the Town of Georgia Beach and Recreation Area unless transported to and from a boat.


What do I do if my dog ran away?

Contact an Animal Control Officer (information on the right side of the page).  If your dog has been picked up by the Town of Georgia you will be given information as to the location of the dog.
