About Us

Adopting A Friend

We have lots of wonderful animals to fall in love with here at Atlanta Humane Society and when you’re ready, one of our adoption counselors will help you through the process. We are here to help 7 days a week so please call 404-875-5331 or email Howell Mill adoptions or Mansell adoptions with any questions you may have.

  • Come visit our adoptable animals at either location during our adoption hours listed here.
  • The adoption interview and paperwork usually takes about an hour to complete (including waiting time) and you will take your adopted animal with you when the adoption paperwork is completed. Please do not try to adopt in a hurry.
  • Adoptions are cut off every day about 30 minutes prior to closing and possibly earlier if volume is high. Weekends are busy and you may have to wait more than an hour (especially in the afternoons) so please be prepared.
  • AHS does not hold animals and all adoptions are done on a first come, first served basis. Certain?exceptions?may?apply.
  • AHS accepts debit cards, credit cards and cash for adoption fees; we do not accept personal checks.
