About Us

Over 138 Years as Atlanta's Primary Animal Charity The AHS is the oldest private charitable organization in Atlanta, founded in 1873 following a visit to the city by Robert E. Lee. The animal charity was originally chartered to protect women, children, and animals and remained a child protection and animal welfare society for 79 years. The Shelter, now a widely recognized pet adoption center, clinic, and educational program provider, was originally located on Marietta Street and moved to its present location at 981 Howell Mill Road in the 1930s. AHS does not euthanize for time or space.

Our Mission

To prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty, and exploitation of animals and to assure that their interests and well-being are fully, effectively, and humanely protected by an aware and caring society.
