Find out more about pet adoption through Best Friends in Atlanta.
Last year, hundreds of thousands of loving dogs and cats were killed in shelters like those here in Atlanta just because they didn’t have safe places to call home.
Best Friends Animal Society in Atlanta is working to change that by collaborating with shelters, rescue groups and individuals across Georgia and the Southeast to save the lives the dogs and cats through adoption, foster and transport programs.
Best Friends also funds and works with Good Mews community cat program to spay and neuter and vaccinate community cats in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
You can help by adopting, fostering volunteering and advocating. Working together, we will make Georgia and the entire country no-kill by 2025.
