XENIA — Greene County Animal Care & Control (GCAC) at 641 Dayton-Xenia Road in Xenia is back to full services with a few changes. The shelter is now open to the public, but animals are seen by appointment only. Residents can call the main line at 937-562-7400 to report their pet missing, to schedule an appointment to pick up their pet, or to see if an appointment is needed before visiting.
