The Atlanta Humane Society has partnered with Pets for Patriots!

Pets for Patriots

For current or former members of the United States military, the Atlanta Humane Society offers fee-waived adoptions for eligible pets after an application is submitted by a military member who is interested in adopting and approved by Pets for Patriots.

Please note that once you submit an application to Pets for Patriots and are approved, you are able to use this application to utlize your two fee-waived adoptions adopt at any time.

Eligible pets for the Pets for Patriots program include:

  • Adult dogs or cats 2 years or older
  • Animals with special needs such as a birth defect or chronic medical condition
  • Any animal who has been in our care for 6 months or more
  • Large dogs of any age weighing 40 or more pounds at the time of the adoption

Please note that you must pre-apply and be approved with Pets for Patriots for your fee-waived adoption prior to coming to adopt.

In addition to fee-waived pet adoption fees, AHS offers ongoing discounted veterinary care through our AHS Veterinary Center. Pets for Patriots offers a $150 gift card to spend on pet food and supplies and education for the public and military community.

Please note that participants of the program may adopt 2 eligible pets (dog or cat) per person/per household.
