For current or former members of the United States Military, the Atlanta Humane Society offers fee-waived adoptions for eligible pets.

Eligible pets for the Pets for Patriots program include:

  • Adult dogs or cats 2 years or older
  • Animals with special needs such as a birth defect or chronic medical condition
  • Any animal who has been in our care for 6 months or more

In addition to discounted pet adoption fees, AHS offers ongoing discounted veterinary care through our AHS Veterinary Center. Pets for Patriots offers a $150 gift card to spend on pet food and supplies and education for the public and military community.
