Shelter Statistics

August 2019

In August 2019, Santa Rosa County Animal Services took in 190 dogs and 142 cats. Of those, 139 dogs were released back to their owners, adopted out or transferred to rescue groups and 101 cats were released to their owners, adopted or transferred. Intake of stray cats continues to be a challenge for us. Spaying and neutering is the only solution to pet overpopulation. See our spay and neuter grant information for assistance.
