About Us

Our Mission

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia's mission is to create a community recognized for responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of animals through offering basic pet wellness and spay/neuter services, public education, and placement of companion animals. Our vision as a humane organization is to inspire and engage the community of northeast Georgia to end animal suffering and cruelty.


Who We Are

Serving Hall County and northeast Georgia since 1913, the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) provides vital services to animals and people alike. A private, non-profit organization that receives no public or government funding, HSNEGA receives no monies from national humane organizations (such as the Humane Society of the United States) or county, state or federal government funds. Instead, we are supported solely by private donations, grants, bequests, investments, and some fees.


What We Do

HSNEGA is a selective admission shelter, meaning we take in healthy animals from owners and other shelters and rescue groups as space allows. We do not euthanize based on duration of stay or space. Instead, animals stay with us until they find a new forever home. Our programs and services include:

  • Adoption of Companion Animals (all adopted animals are spayed/neutered, microchiped, up-to-date on vaccinations, health & behavioral tested, etc.)
  • Spay/Neuter Center providing affordable spay-neuter surgery to the public
  • Low-cost Wellness Clinic including basic vaccinations and testing for dogs and cats
  • Intake of Owner-Relinquished Pets
  • Rescue of Displaced Animals from other shelters throughout northeast Georgia
  • Foster Care Program for animals with special needs
  • Owner Requested Euthanasia (for terminally ill or suffering animals)
  • Pet Loss Support Group
  • Pet-Assisted Therapy
  • Weekend Wellness Clinics
  • Pet Store offering supplies for a variety of animals at 50%+ off retail
