Dogs and cats are not allowed to run loose off property unless under the care and control of their owners. There is an impound facility to temporarily hold animals found running at large. Animals are held for 5 days. Pictures of impounded pets are posted at various locations around town and on the Barnesville Animal Control facebook page.

Pet licenses are good for one calendar year and must be renewed each January 1st. Cost of the licenses are $5.00 for de-sexed pets and $10.00 for others.
