FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — Fulton County is kicking off a series of community meetings to hear from residents about the planned construction of a new animal shelter. 

The first meeting will take place from 6:30 p.m. June 20, at the Wolf Creek Library, 3100 Enon Road in Atlanta. Meetings will take place in coming months in north and central Fulton County. 

Residents will hear updates from Fulton County leaders along with PGAL and Animal Arts, the firms conducting the feasibility study for the planned new animal shelter, and from Lifeline Animal Project, the current animal service provider. Attendees will participate in a feedback framework. 

The current Fulton County Animal Shelter was constructed in 1978. 

The feasibility study was approved by the Board of Commissioners in May 2019 and is the first step in planning for a new animal services facility. The study will provide insight on site selection, space requirements, improvements and operational needs.
