When Melonie was brought to the Atlanta Humane Society, we immediately knew we had to help. She had a growth the size of a cantaloupe hanging from her left side, and she was so scared. Our Shelter Medicine Team immediately took x-rays and could see that sweet Melonie's growth was the largest hernia they had [...]

Last week, our Animal Protection Unit responded to an urgent puppy mill situation in Lamar County, GA where 44 dogs were living in extreme neglect. Many were nearly starving, most were covered head-to-toe in painful mats, and they had no hope. One of these dogs was Clover. She was in a kennel all by herself [...]

When little Harriet arrived at the Atlanta Humane Society, it was hard to tell what kind of animal she was. At 8-weeks-old, she was less than two pounds and covered head-to-toe in itchy, painful sores. A quick diagnostic test confirmed that this sweet girl had demodectic mange, which was making her miserable.   Her skin was [...]

Rescued Poodles

UPDATE: One of the Standard Poodles has already been adopted, and the other two are finishing up treatment for their ear infections after receiving a much-needed grooming. Don't they look great?!

Levi's previous owner didn't know what to do. She brought him to us begging for help, and we knew that this little guy still had some fight left in him. His back legs are partially paralyzed, which makes it impossible for him to run and play like a normal dog. He drags his injured legs [...]
