About Cobb County Animal Services
Cobb County Animal Services is part of the county’s Department of Public Safety.
The unit was created in 1971, and is currently under the leadership of Division Director Shana Luke.
According to the Cobb County Animal Services website:
The mission of the Cobb County Animal Services Unit is to enforce state laws and county ordinances pertaining to animal control and management; educate the community on responsible pet ownership and wildlife care and provide housing and care for homeless animals, while coordinating their adoptions when possible and humane euthanization when adoptions are not possible.
The shelter is directed by Jake Arnold, the Kennel Operations Manager, and two kennel supervisors.
The veterinary operation for the facility is directed by Dr. Amy Belew, and has two main functions: to spay and neuter a majority of the animals that are adopted from Cobb County Animal Services, and to treat sick or injured animals that are brought to the shelter.
