Adopt a Dog


Adopt a Dog

At the Atlanta Humane Society, we take special care to make sure the animals we house are a good fit for the homes they go to. We have a variety of friendly, healthy, tail-wagging furry friends just brimming with love to give. Even if they can’t say it out loud, when you find the right animal, you’ll feel their gratitude and affection. Your new best friend is waiting for you!

You can browse all of the dogs and puppies currently available for adoption below. We are processing adoptions two different ways depending on whether an animal is physically housed at one of our locations or in a foster home. The adoption process is listed in each animal’s biography so that you’ll know if you need to fill out a pre-adoption application form or visit them at one of our locations to adopt.

Our Adoption Processes

You can learn more about our adoption processes on our adoption process page.

Featured Pets

Finding love can take time. And for some animals, it’s taken a little longer than we hoped to find a perfect home. Some of them are long-term residents while others, for reasons out of their control, have been overlooked. We hope you’ll considering adopting one of these special animals and giving them the life they deserve.

American Heroes Adoption Program

We offer a discount on all dog and cat adoptions through our American Heroes Adoption Program for first responders, current servicemen/women and veterans, all healthcare workers, and members of the National Association of Independent Truckers.

Home-to-home Adoption

We’ve partnered with Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet to highlight animals in our community that are in need of a home. View the animals here and then reach out to the owner listed on the pet’s profile if you’re interested in learning more about adoption.
