Supporting Our Furry Friends

Make a Difference in the Life of a Shelter Pet!

Even Shelter Animals Need Friends! You can be the difference in the lives of our shelter animals!

Every dollar you donate, help us raise, or hour of your time volunteering with Friends of the Georgetown Animal Shelter makes a world of difference to the animals and staff at the Georgetown Animal Shelter. Your support means more walks and barks and contented purring for many years to come. Friends are always welcome, so join us today! Here’s how:


Medical equipment, emergency surgeries, specialty training – your monetary donations provide the shelter animals with the best care possible.

Our funding is 100% from donations, grants, and memberships. The funds we raise cover the extra costs of supplies and equipment not included in the shelter’s regular budget.

Serving the Community for Over 30 Years

The Georgetown Animal Shelter is an open-intake municipal animal shelter for the City of Georgetown. The shelter is responsible for all animals found within the city limits of Georgetown or surrendered by city residents.

The shelter strives to return lost animals to their owners or find new homes for them. The support of our amazing community and dedicated volunteers has helped the shelter achieve a Live Release Rate of better than 90% since fiscal year 2015. Quite an accomplishment for a city shelter and one which would not be possible without dedicated volunteers and community support.


Friends of the Georgetown Animal Shelter is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was formed in 2010 by a group of volunteers who are passionate about enhancing the lives of shelter animals.  We do this by supporting the shelter’s mission through fundraising events, memberships and volunteering.
