Shelter Operations

The kennel operation is under the direction of Shana Luke, Kennel Operations Manager, and two kennel supervisors.

There are two crews. One crew works the first part of the week and the other crew works the second half of the week. The officers assigned to the kennel have the responsibility of taking care of the animals that are housed at the Cobb County Animal Shelter. The duties of these officers include:

  • Thoroughly cleaning the animal cages
  • Feeding the animals
  • Intake of animals
  • Educating potential adopters
  • Assisting owners in finding lost pets

There are also administrative employees that fall under the kennel operations. Animal Control also has employees that assist in adoptions and reclaims. There is also a rabies coordinator. This person handles all of the animal bite cases that come into the shelter. The main job of this person is to make sure that animals are quarantined for rabies observation after a person is bitten.

The shelter’s hours of operations are:

Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 am – 5:30 pm
Sunday 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Closed on Mondays and holidays
