Pups With Santa
Has your dog been naughty or nice? Bring your pet to see Santa at Atlantic Station this weekend and let him be the judge! Proceeds from the photos taken on these specific dates will benefit Atlanta Humane Society. We’ll have a booth set up by the tree and a few adoptable dogs trying to steal some hearts.

Santa at the Shelter
Santa’s coming to our Mansell Campus for one day only! Bring the whole family (pets included) by to see him and have your picture taken. Have kids but no pets? Borrow an adoptable puppy for one memorable photo. We’ll be serving hot cocoa and cookies. Kids can make ornaments and holiday crafts at our Art Table. And you can finish the afternoon by roasting s’mores by the fire. Admission, refreshments and crafting are FREE. Receive a digital copy of your photo with Santa for a $5 donation.

A Celebration of Dogs
Atlanta is home to a world-class arts community—one of the many reasons Bonhams returns to the city every year to offer art aficionados a sneak peek at an upcoming auction. Bonhams leads the market in canine paintings and sculptures. Their annual auction, “Dogs in Show and Field: The Fine Art Sale,” is held in Manhattan every February to coincide with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. For one night only, the works travel to Atlanta where animal and art lovers come together to admire the pieces before they go up for auction. Co-chaired by luxury handbag designer Jada Loveless and interior designer Alison Womack Jowers, the event is set to be a classy soiree featuring hors d’oeuvres, specially curated cocktails, and adoptable dogs. Atlanta Humane Society anticipates 300 attendees. “After Five” attire is requested. Art-loving pets are invited to attend with their owners. There will be an h2o bar and handmade treats to keep them happy! Check back soon to purchase your tickets!

Grief Group for Pet Loss
The Atlanta Humane Society offers a Grief Group for Pet Loss at the Howell Mill Campus on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 11am-12pm. Come share your story with group members experiencing similar loss and emotions. The session is led by Linda Ehlers. Linda holds a master’s degree in community counseling and education from Georgia Sate University. Linda is also available for individual counseling. The main objective of the group is to generate mutual support and comfort to one another. No appointment is necessary, and the cost is $5.00. For more information, please call the AHS Education Department at 404.974.2899.
Donate A Kuranda Bed
Just imagine lying on a cold, hard, concrete floor 24 hours a day. Add the stress of an unfamiliar place with sights and sounds feeling nothing like home, and you can understand the stress a dog feels in an animal shelter. Your donation of a comfortable raised bed will provide a soft and dry place for a dog to have a good night’s sleep. Beds are offered at special discount, come with a 1 year warranty and are sent directly to the shelter in your name. Please click here to donate a bed so our dogs can have a soft place to relax. A shelter dog will be grateful!
