Helping Homeless Pets in Hart and Franklin Counties

Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter (NEGAS) is a non-profit corporation, which serves Hart and Franklin Counties and the cities of Hartwell, Lavonia, Carnesville, Bowersville, Franklin Springs, Royston, and Canon.


NEGAS provides for the sheltering and disposition of homeless and relinquished animals brought to the Shelter by law enforcement agents or resident citizens of those jurisdictions. The animals will be humanely treated and cared for while at the shelter pending their being reclaimed by their owner, adopted, rescued or, when necessary, euthanized. The shelter operates in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Georgia Department of Agriculture pertaining to animal shelter facilities.

The Northeast Georgia Animal Shelter (known as NEGAS) has a goal to place as many animals as possible into safe, caring homes and to encourage responsible pet ownership.
