Deputy Skyler Maassel was appointed Paulding County Dog Warden by the County Commissioners effective January 12, 2019.  This position is under the supervision of the Paulding County Sheriff Jason K. Landers.

Paulding County Dog Kennel is funded primarily by dog licensing fees.  Dog tags can be purchased at the Paulding County Auditor’s Office, Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Visit their website for more information on fees, deadlines and on-line dog licensing.

The county’s kennel also receives support from community volunteers and organizations.  In April, 2015, Friends of the Paulding County Dog Kennel hosted their first fundraiser called “Paws for a Cause.”  The designer purse bingo event raised over $11,000 to be used for shelter dogs’ medical care, transport assistance and other miscellaneous needs.

The Paulding County Dog Kennel is located at 13387 U.S. 127, Paulding.  In 2018, 57 dogs were placed into new homes or no-kill rescue centers.  Also in the same year, an additional 80 dogs were reunited with their owners.  All are encouraged to visit the Kennel’s Facebook  to locate a missing dog or check out the ones up for adoption.
