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 in pain [...]

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 fracture along [...]

40 Dogs Rescued from Puppy Mill

Today, our Animal Cruelty Unit brought 40 severely neglected dogs to Atlanta from a puppy mill situation in south Georgia. All 40 animals will need extensive medical evaluation and care, and many are matted head-to-toe and suffering from heartworm disease and other illnesses. The dogs range in age from 7 months to twelve years, and [...]

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 [...]
