We give love to cats and dogs when they need it most.

For more than 149 years, we have remained steadfast in our mission to stand strong in defense of the vulnerable. We believe the relationship between humans and animals has deep significance and, together, we know that Atlanta can take action against animal cruelty, neglect, and displacement.  The Atlanta Humane Society aims to better lives, instill compassion, and uplift our whole community by connecting homeless animals with good homes and providing neglected animals with safe spaces.
