Dear Friends,

There is never a slow day at Atlanta Humane Society (AHS), and I can’t thank you enough for your continued support.  Thanks to the generosity and commitment of animal lovers like you, we have been able to find permanent, loving homes for thousands of homeless animals already this year!  Our doors are open to the animals seven days a week and that is a huge effort!

We continue to work with more than 100 transport partners nationwide, bringing needy animals to Atlanta where they can receive life-changing care.  Now more than ever, we are focusing rescue efforts on senior, large-breed, and special-needs animals.

Our Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Georgia Initiative remains a key focus as we provide an invaluable community service to thousands of animals across the state.  Last year, we were able to spay/neuter more than 12,500 animals, including dogs and cats at AHS and pets throughout Georgia. This is the first step in putting an end to companion animal homelessness and overpopulation.  We are making plans to expand this effort even more in the coming months and into next year, and your support continues to be critical in helping us save more lives!

During the warmer weather months, we see increases in litters of puppies and kittens that arrive daily at our shelters.  Please remember to start first with your own animals and make sure they are spayed and neutered.  Secondly, please help us get the word out that our neighbors need to do the same!  You can direct them to our website or call us at 404-875-5331 to get more information on how to get an animal sterilized, so they can’t contribute to the overpopulation problem.

Also, at this time of year, we are reminding our friends about our monthly Caregivers Club that allows convenient, automatic donations every month – find out more at atlantahumane.org/caregiversclub.  Please know that your gift makes a difference in the lives of thousands of animals right here in Georgia every single day!

It will take all of us working together to make Georgia a better place for animals today, tomorrow and in the future!

 

Sincerely,

Cal
