The streets are a sad, lonely place for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies without homes.
Hunger gnaws at empty bellies. No soothing voice or gentle hand offers comfort. Fear becomes a way of life. Fortunately, with help from friends like you, the Atlanta Humane Society offers a safe haven, nourishing food and medical care for homeless animals. But what these animals really need is a loving home they can call their own.
Animals like Millie and her six puppies, who were dropped off at an overcrowded rural shelter, shivering and starving. Millie — not even two years old herself — had already had multiple litters in her short life. She was struggling to survive and doing all she could to be a good mother to her babies.
The little family was transferred to the Atlanta Humane Society from our shelter partner. We bathed and brushed their matted coats, and filled their empty tummies with nourishing meals — and some extra treats. A waiting foster family was soon providing lifesaving love and care. With your support, these precious lives have been saved.
Meanwhile Rain, a tiny gray tiger kitten, was found alone, cold, and barely alive. At only three weeks old, Rain was likely orphaned because of her neurological issues. She couldn’t hold her head straight and she could barely walk. We rushed her into foster care where she received round-the-clock bottle feeding and extra love.
Just a few weeks later, Rain was inching closer to good health. Her eyes became bright, and her neurological issues began to resolve with proper care and nutrition.
That’s why your support today is so critical — with kitten and puppy season going on right now, AHS depends on friends like you to cover expenses that provide care for the most vulnerable animals like Rain, until we can find them all homes.
While we do all we can to help these vulnerable animals, at times their needs can be overwhelming.
Could you find it in your heart to make a gift today to help find loving homes for helpless animals?
Your kind gift will help provide shelter and medical care while they wait — and will even support spaying and neutering to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs.
On behalf of the animals, thank you for your friendship and support!
For the animals,
President and CEO
