Animal control Voucher

Please be aware that until further notice the Calhoun County Animal Control Center will only be able to accept animals in emergency situations due to high intake levels coupled with staffing shortages

City leadership asks for citizens’ patience as our animal control unit must prioritize emergency situations when addressing reported animal concerns throughout the City of Anniston due to the current constraints of the Calhoun County Animal Control Center. 

At this time, City of Anniston Animal Control Vouchers will only be issued in emergency situations. Each request will be evaluated on a case by case basis prior to a voucher being issued.
