Toby

As soon as he entered our care, we knew something wasn't right with little Toby. One of his front legs caught the attention of our Shelter Medicine Team, and they soon realized why this little guy was having trouble walking. They carefully examined him and realized that this tiny puppy had a severe [...]

Eloise

We heard tiny, desperate meows coming from a small crate that had been dropped off in front of our Admissions department and immediately rushed to see what was inside. Much to our surprise, we found two tiny kittens that needed love and care. Upon closer inspection, one of the two kittens was screaming [...]

Shelley

Shelley was one of 32 dogs rescued from severe neglect. They were living in their own filth without any access to much-needed Veterinary care. As soon as we saw Shelley, we knew she was in some of the worst shape imaginable. Her tiny, frail body was matted from head to toe, and she could barely [...]

Petunia

Her face should have been soft, bright white, and hopeful. Instead, she was tinged brown, fleas crawling all around in her matted fur, and her eyes were pleading for help. Perhaps for the first time, Petunia was safe. And she would soon know what it felt like to be cared for and truly loved.  Our [...]

Miggie

In anticipation of Hurricane Florence, many Carolina shelters were pleading to clear space in their shelters so that they would be able to take in as many displaced animals as possible. Miggie came to the Atlanta Humane Society from one of those Carolina shelters, and when he arrived, we knew he needed more than shelter [...]

Samantha

Samantha arrived at the Atlanta Humane Society seeking refuge from Hurricane Florence. When she was carried off the truck, we knew she needed more help than most of the other pups that arrived with her. Our Shelter Medicine Team immediately began working on sweet Samantha and noticed hair loss, skin irritation, and malnourishment were plaguing [...]

Bucky

Tiny Bucky was brought to our friends at Dekalb County Animal Services with a severe injury- he couldn't put any weight on his front left paw, so they reached out to us, and we gladly took this guy into our care.  Our expert Shelter Medicine Team performed x-rays and saw that Bucky's leg was badly [...]

Linus

When Linus came into our care, we knew something was wrong. He could barely stand up, and couldn’t walk on his own. He was dehydrated, confused, and helpless. Our Shelter Medicine Team began running tests on Linus to determine the cause of his neurological issues, and what they found was shocking. His neurological issues were [...]

Hutch

Hutch had a broken heart. One of his valves was so small, blood wasn't moving through his heart properly. Without surgery, he would only survive a few months. A gracious donor provided the funds needed for Hutch's surgery, and after a successful recovery, Hutch has a whole happy life in front of him! Your donation helps heal [...]

Ella

Ella made the long journey from the South Carolina coast seeking refuge from Hurricane Florence. She arrived at midnight along with 34 other dogs who evacuated ahead of Hurricane Florence's landfall. Sweet Ella is covered head-to-toe in itchy mange, a skin condition that caused all her hair to fall out and for her skin to [...]
