Happy Holidays

November 15th, 2017|Comments Off on Happy Holidays

As the holidays approach, we look forward to happy times with loved ones: laughing with friends, reuniting with family from near and far, sharing delicious meals, warmth on chilly days, good cheer and love abounding. For those of us who love our pets like family, they’ll be right in the middle of it all, wagging and purring next to us. But for so many homeless and abused animals, the holidays will not be happy times. Joey For Joey, a sweet puppy who came to us earlier this year, life could have held this same fate. Joey was tossed from a moving vehicle and hit by a car. When Joey arrived at the Atlanta Humane Society, this small puppy was crying out in pain and unable to walk. But your support saves homeless and [...]

This Dog’s Story Will Touch Your Heart: Bailey

October 4th, 2017|Comments Off on This Dog’s Story Will Touch Your Heart: Bailey

Words can never fully express how much you mean to the Atlanta Humane Society (AHS). You’ve had an incredible impact on the lives of hundreds of dogs and cats here in the metro Atlanta area — like Bailey . . . Bailey was transported to us from one of our shelter partners — AHS works with more than 100 local animal shelters throughout Georgia and the Southeast. This lifesaving partnership brings homeless rural animals to the metro Atlanta area, where they can find homes much faster and their lives can be saved. Bailey was limping pitifully when he first came to us. He was obviously afraid, hurting badly and had been suffering for some time. He’d had no way to let someone know, and no one who cared. When our Shelter Medicine Team [...]

Last year, your support helped save thousands of dogs and cats. Today, these animals are thriving with new, loving families, and that gives us so much joy! We’re well on pace to save even more animals this year, and I’m excited to share some of the happy endings these animals are experiencing — all thanks to you! Bella, whose heart condition was healed through lifesaving surgery... Dewey, who had a rare and painful birth defect... Sugar, who had specialized surgery performed on her leg... and others. When you read these amazing stories of survival, please know that you made them possible. You gave desperate cats and dogs second chances. I cannot thank you enough — for caring, and for saving their lives. Sincerely, Cal Morgan

Dear Friends: Advancing animal welfare and improving the lives of animals in the Southeast is the duty of our entire community. This community includes animal welfare advocates and supporters like you as well as the many animal welfare organizations in our area. Collaborations between these animal welfare organizations are key, especially considering our goals are all the same – to save animal lives. This year, we strived to lead these collaborations. Made possible by support from friends like you, our transfer partner program collaborated with more than 100 agencies across the Southeast giving these animals a second chance in life. We’re also bringing harder medical cases, like Maggie, our cover dog, into our shelters from these organizations to provide them specialized care. We also collaborated with these animal welfare organizations during the first [...]

Home for the Holidays

October 26th, 2016|Comments Off on Home for the Holidays

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 [...]
