Adopting A Friend

To view our animals that are available for adoption, please go to:

www.humanesocietysav.org

We are no longer accepting adoption applications online or via fax. If interested in adoption, we ask that you please come by the shelter so you can spend time with the pet, and we can familiarize you with our adoption process.

All pet adoptions include the following:

Dogs

Adoption fees range between $150-$300 and include the following:
Heartworm testing (if over four months old)
Distemper / Parvo-virus vaccination
Bordetella vaccination
Rabies vaccination
Heartworm prevention
General dewormer for intestinal parasites
Spay / Neuter
Microchip with registration on national database
Certificate for FREE office visit at the veterinarian of your choice
30 days of free ShelterCare pet insurance

Cats

Adoption fees range between $9-$50 and include the following:
Feline AIDS and Leukemia test (if over six weeks old)

All adopted pets are surgically sterilized. Any animal that is too young or otherwise unable to be spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter, will go into foster care with the adopter until the surgery is performed. Once the pet is sterilized, the adoption can be finalized.

Please keep in mind, children and four-legged friends should be included in the final decision to adopt. 

Adoption applications are not "first come, first served." We do accept multiple applications for a pet.

It may take up to 24 hours to process an application.

Be aware: There is no guarantee that you will be approved for the particular pet for which you have applied. We are looking for the best fit for the pet and potential adopter. You may be encouraged to meet a pet that may be a better fit.

Who We Are

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Humane Society for Greater Savannah is to lead our community in the compassionate treatment of animals, to address the causes of animal suffering and overpopulation, to educate and encourage people to take responsibility for their animal companions and to provide care for animals in need. 

 

History

More than 55 years ago, a group of concerned animal lovers joined together to organize The Humane Society of Chatham-Savannah, Inc. In February 1985, the Humane Society was incorporated under the laws of the State of Georgia. In November of the same year, we were recognized as a federally tax-exempt 501(c)3 charity under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.

In January 2010, we changed our name to The Humane Society for Greater Savannah - to more accurately describe our area of service. All funding of The Humane Society for Greater Savannah is by private donation from individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations; bequests; special events; grants; and from the proceeds of our "Pick of the Litter" Thrift Shop. We receive NO funding from any government agency, and NO money from any other animal welfare organization including the Humane Society of the United States.

The Humane Society for Greater Savannah is proud to be a Drug Free Workplace.
