Throughout the last 10 years, our adoption center in Alpharetta has enabled us to support the needs of North Fulton County and the surrounding areas. We are extremely proud of the impact this facility has had on tens of thousands of animals within these communities. Within this time, many dynamics in caring for pets have both shifted and become more complex, including many of our animals requiring significant medical and/or behavioral treatment. This reality, combined with the opportunity to sell the property that housed our Alpharetta facility at an above-market price, has led to the difficult decision to sell the property. While we will miss this facility and its location in the heart of North Fulton, we are excited to be able to reinvest in these communities in a way that will impact and save more pets and keep more families together with their companions than ever before.
Currently, we are working on the plans for a new purpose-built facility that, while smaller than our current Alpharetta location, will be better suited to address the needs of today’s pets and the people who care for them. We are also working on the plans and programs that we will continue to deliver within these communities during the transition to our new North Fulton animal center, ensuring there are robust opportunities for adoption, fostering, and volunteering within these same communities.
Our current Alpharetta location will be closing on Monday, June 19 and we will soon be rolling out our community animal plans for the North Fulton area in the very near term. As part of our planning, it is imperative to hear from our North Fulton citizens and pet parents. Please consider taking a few minutes to complete the short survey to let us know what your needs are and how you believe Atlanta Humane can continue to best serve these communities.
