The Barn on Baseline Animal Shelter/Adoption Center was started in 1974 to meet the needs of stray and abandoned dogs and cats in DeKalb County. There are still footprints in the concrete floor of the shelter from the first dog sheltered there (a bit before we were quite ready). We have a very open policy for visiting our shelter. Come out any time.The Animal Services Division is managed by a non-profit organization whose programs strengthen the entire animal welfare community by promoting homeless pet adoption, providing affordable spay/neuter services, increasing public awareness, and advocating for lifesaving public policy. The animal services division provides humane care for the animals at the shelter, veterinary care including spay/neuters, pet adoptions, animal reclaims, volunteers, foster homes and rescue group coordination. Since taking over management of DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS) and Fulton County Animal Services in 2013, thousands of lives have been saved and adoptions have been increased by 300% at DCAS alone.
