The City of Fort Valley has a "dangerous dog" ordinance. Under this ordinance, Fort Valley residents that own Rottweilers and Pit Bulls must register their animals annually at City Hall. There is a fee to register these animals. Owners failing to abide by the stipulations of this ordinance are subject to receiving a citation ("ticket").
Animals taken into "custody" by the Animal Control officer will be taken to the Fort Valley Animal Hospital (Dr. Lori A. Giles, DVM) located at 900 Knoxville Street. The phone number is 478-825-1233.
