I’m so excited to share with you that the Atlanta Humane Society has finalized the purchase of 5 acres of land just west of the city. This property, located in the Rockdale neighborhood on Perry Boulevard, is across the road from the evolving Quarry Yards development and will be an important new piece in the Atlanta Humane Society’s long history in Atlanta.
This land is more than twice the size of our current property in West Midtown and will provide AHS the opportunity to develop a forward-thinking facility that addresses the ever-changing needs of animal welfare and our communities. The property is right along the same corridor where we were founded more than 146 years ago and is just a few miles from our current location on Howell Mill Road. The development of the newly acquired property on Perry Boulevard will result in the future sale of AHS’ current West Midtown facility.
To be a part of this burgeoning area of development within the city of Atlanta and its future is incredibly exciting for us. We have a deep history in this city (tracing back to 1873), and we are excited to make Atlanta a community where all of its pets are healthy and happy.
Thank you for your continued support of Atlanta’s animals and the Atlanta Humane Society as a Guardians Circle member, and please know that we’ll keep you updated on the plans and any new news as it happens.
