The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) is setting the “gold” standard for animal welfare in the communities we serve. We do this by expanding our capacity to serve at-need pets and people; by investing in an exceptional facility and team; and broadening our life-saving impact through collaboration, advocacy, and rescue. A compassionate organization with a history spanning 100+ years, HSNEGA is the sole selective admission facility in northeast Georgia, and one of only a handful in Georgia. We are creating a model facility based on a proactive vision to end animal neglect and suffering in our region through: - accessible education and outreach programs offered throughout the community, at all age levels, addressing a wide range of animal welfare issues; - providing access to affordable surgery and basic wellness services to encourage and assist pet owners in properly caring for their pets; - rescuing neglected and abandoned companion animals (even the “tough” cases) and giving them a second chance; - advocating for animal welfare issues that support responsible pet ownership and renounce abuse and neglect; and - providing leadership in creating a community known for treating our people and pets with respect and compassion. We will achieve this vision through building a strong infrastructure based on building relationships with diverse groups of stakeholders who share our passion for ensure that no healthy animal or willing pet owner lacks access to resources.
