2X Matching Gift Challenge

I have outstanding news that I can’t wait to share: Every dollar you give by August 31 to help the sickest and most fragile animals brought to AHS will be matched by a group of our major donors — up to $200,000! That means your gift will be doubled — essentially helping save twice as many animals . . . This matching opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time.

We also collaborated with these animal welfare organizations during the first [...]

Dear Friends, As we anticipate the upcoming holiday season, we often think of all of the wonderful things that the holidays include: time with families, wonderful food, gathering with friends, warmth, comfort, peace and love. As we also know, many in our communities do not get to experience these wonderful aspects of the holiday season. While I know our dog Ralph will be part of our family celebrations and will have his own gifts under our tree, many animals will not see that this year. Let me share a story about one of the animals who came to Atlanta Humane Society recently: her name is Lizzie. She is a 2-year-old Beagle mix. She and her seven puppies, only a few weeks old, were picked up by county animal control outside of a home where they [...]
