Our Mission

Serving the community since 1913, the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) provides vital services to animals and people alike. Our goal to create a community recognized for responsible for pet ownership and humane treatment of animals through offering basic pet wellness and spay/neuter services, public education, and placement of companion animals.

A private, non-profit organization that receives no public or government funding, HSNEGA receives no monies from national humane organizations or county, state or federal government funds. Instead, we are supported solely by private donations, grants, bequests, investments, and fees for services.


What We Do

HSNEGA is a selective admission shelter, meaning we intake animals from owners as well as other animal welfare organizations and rescue groups as our capacity allows. We do not euthanize based on duration of stay or space. Instead, animals stay with us until they find a new foreve

Adoption Policy


Each year, HSNEGA helps hundreds of rescues find loving homes. Our Adoption Center team will work with you to find the right dog, cat, or critter for your home. Our goal for pet adoptions is to select the best-suited match between an animal and an adopter. This process helps us maintain a very low return rate.


Our team uses a matchmaking process to ensure each animal adopted will be matched to the most compatible new owner. During this process, we review any medical or behavioral information relevant to the animal, review services available to adopters, and explain our policies.
