Our Vision for the Future

Our Vision for the Future

Over the past 7 years, we have tackled significant challenges facing homeless animals across Georgia, supported our most vulnerable pet owners during the pandemic, and grown our support of other animal welfare organizations. As the efforts of adoption, spay and neuter, and transport have helped our organization and the animal welfare community reduce overpopulation, we are faced with an exciting and challenging question: How do we continue to reduce overpopulation and serve the newly exposed and more complex problems of under-resourced pets and their caregivers, a lack of accessible and affordable veterinary care, and slowly moving systems of change within the animal welfare field?

As we move forward as a leader in the field of caring for animals, we are committed to evolving the way we serve our community, both here in Atlanta and across the Southeast. At the beginning and end of each day, we are driven to make a difference in the lives of animals and the people who love them. We will build on our long history of attentive and compassionate service to ensure more pets can get access to the resources they need.

Our goal is clear and deeply motivated by our desire to keep pets in their loving homes: We seek to improve the lives and well-being of pets and people, collectively and perhaps most importantly, one life, one need, one animal at a time.

Imagine being able to do something transformative to honor an animal that changed your life, or pay tribute to someone who is passionate about animal welfare.

Maybe your heart is bigger than your ability to give during your lifetime, but you long to leave a personal mark on Atlanta Humane’s mission. Maybe you would like to ensure that today’s lifesaving programs continue to support our Atlanta community for the next 150 years.
