PARTNER TRANSFER PROGRAM PROTOCOL
Atlanta Humane Society’s goal is to save as many animals as possible and place them into loving, forever homes. In an effort to best protect and serve the animals, our communities and our organization, AHS has established a Transfer Partner Protocol. These guidelines for accepting animals work to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our adoptable animals.
AHS BEGINS TRANSPORT OF DOGS TO OTHER STATES
Due to less demand for large breed dogs, many of the dogs at AHS could have waited for months for a forever home. The decision to transport these dogs is to help not only save many lives at once by transporting them to other shelters but also to create space to help more dogs. The transported dogs all have great personalities and are loving, happy dogs ready for their forever homes.
For AHS, transporting dogs creates space to take in dogs who would be found on the streets and potentially at risk of euthanasia at smaller and rural shelters due to lack of space. Transporting animals out of Georgia is not a solution to the problem of pet overpopulation; it’s a way to manage the current issues while we combat it on the front end by increased spaying/neutering.
