While visiting Atlanta I had the opportunity to check out one of the Atlanta Humane Society locations thanks to my friend Kimberley.

Information from their website:

The AHS is the oldest private charitable organization in Atlanta, founded in 1873 following a visit to the city by Robert E. Lee. The animal charity was originally chartered to protect women, children, and animals and remained a child protection and animal welfare society for 79 years. The Atlanta Humane Society, now a widely recognized pet adoption center, clinic, and educational program provider, was originally located on Marietta Street and moved to its present location at 981 Howell Mill Road in the 1930s.

It is our mission to prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty and exploitation of animals and to assure that their interests and well-being are fully, effectively and humanely protected by an aware and caring society.

The Atlanta Humane Society places approximately 8,000 animals each year. AHS is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. We do not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for the animals once they are in our care. We only humanely euthanize those animals suffering from significant medical issues or that pose behavior concerns. We are proud to be a part of the solution to ending pet homelessness and overpopulation in the Southeast United States.

More info:

  • They do not euthanize because of time and space
  • Over 70% of their funds come from donations
  • Find more information on the website

Other services:

  • Most popular program is low-cost spay/neuter program. Bring in pet for spay/neuter/chip for $35
  • Plus mobile spay unit
  • Dog training classes
