About the Atlanta Humane Society
The Atlanta Humane Society is a no-kill shelter providing sheltering and adoption, veterinary care, and community outreach. As one of the oldest charities in Atlanta, we have been caring for our community and animals for more than 148 years.
We believe the relationship between humans and animals has deep significance, and we call on our city and each other to take action. Together, we put up a united front against cruelty, neglect, and displacement. With a heart to better lives, we connect homeless animals with good homes, provide neglected animals with safe spaces, and uplift our community by instilling compassion.
The mission of the Atlanta Humane Society is to improve animal welfare in the southeastern United States by providing quality animal services including preventative initiatives, education, advocacy, and adoption of animals into permanent loving homes.
The vision of the Atlanta Humane Society is to be the premier leader and organizational resource for the welfare and protection of companion animals in the southeastern United States.
We’re proud to be able to work together with animal advocates, other animal welfare organizations, volunteers, and our community partners to save lives.
