Butts County Animal Control is currently closed to the public, but Butts Mutts is still working by appointment only. They are working diligently to get dogs in foster care, if not adopted, as quickly as possibly.
We highly recommend a "Meet and Greet" for all members of the household prior to any adoption. If interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application at buttsmutts.com. We also have volunteer fostering available through Butts Mutts, and a foster application is available on our website as well.
I have worked for community newspapers in Butts, Henry, Newton, Rockdale, and Upson counties for 30 years. I was Editor of the Jackson Progress-Argus from 1993-1999, and returned to the Progress-Argus as Senior Reporter in 2019.
