Walton County Animal Control is a government-run animal control facility. Because we are an open-intake "pound" for strays and owner surrenders, we are unfortunately not a "no-kill" shelter. But with your help, our goal is to be as "low-kill" as possible! When you adopt or rescue from our facility, you truly are saving a dog or cat from being put to sleep.
