Our Policies

Euthanasia Policy

Committed to being Live Savers for adoptable animals in northeast Georgia, the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia takes the decision to euthanize any animal very seriously.

Our commitment to the healthy and treatable animals in our care means that we are willing to pursue all reasonable efforts in order to provide for their well-being.

Euthanasia is not considered for adoptable animals because of lack of space or duration of stay at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. Animals that are deemed to pose an unacceptable danger to other animals, themselves, or the public are candidates for euthanasia. Animals that are suffering mentally, emotionally, or physically also may be candidates for euthanasia.

The approval process for any euthanasia at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia incorporates the expert opinion and authorization of multiple trained, professional staff members, including a licensed Veterinarian, the Manager of Kennel Services, and the Executive Director of the organization.



Adoption Policy

All HSNEGA staff members are trained to assure the highest level of customer service. Staff members focus on the best matchmaking process for the pet and their adopter. Our goal is to assist the best pet that fits their lifestyle, needs, and wants. Ultimately, it is the adopter who decides the right pet for their circumstances under the guidance of HSNEGA staff.



Adoption Partners Policy

HSNEGA seeks to work with other northeast Georgia area shelters and rescues to help further our life-saving mission. From intake of animals into our facility to coordinating spay/neuter programs/transport, the purpose of our policies is to ensure a successful working relationship between the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia and other animal welfare organization.
