The Atlanta Humane Society is a very well managed organization for pet adoptions. Would highly recommend looking here first for your next dog or cat.

What a great facility and staff! Over many years in Atlanta, my family has adopted more than a few pets here and all were well cared card for while in their hands. This is our latest, Bessie.
A few months after my 12 year old Chow passed away I went to the Atlanta Humane Society to take a look at possibly adopting a dog I saw on their website. I have an 8 yr old German Shepherd that I brought along with me for a meet and greet with the new dog, and to ensure they got along well. Upon arrival they thanked me for bringing my dog in, as it is something they encourage. I spotted the dog from the website (a beautiful 1.5 yr old, blue-coat, Shar Pei) and said I would like to take a look at her. Long story short, the dogs got along great and I decided to adopt. The personnel at the Humane Society were very pleasant and helpful in answering my questions. They also provided a free initial pet wellness exam for the Shar Pei at any VCA Pets Are People Too vet clinic; which I made sure to take advantage of. I was also able to purchase the heart worm medication for the dog on site. I highly recommend this place and cannot stress enough how important it is to adopt from the Humane Society, animal shelter, rescue and the like. I would also like to note that the ATL Humane Society is 100% self-sustaining and does not receive any government assistance as the county animal shelters do.
