The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia would like to help stop this with our 101 Workshops. New owners are invited to attend Reptiles 101, Small Mammals 101, Aquariums 101, and Rabbits 101 for new owners. These hour and a half workshops are available to the public; please check our calendar for dates.

Baby-Ready Pets

Are you expecting? Now is the perfect time to get your pets ready for the new addition in your family. 

Baby-Ready Pets is an hour and a half workshop that will help you make the arrival of your baby as stress-free for you and your pets as possible. From new smells, sounds, and routines, your family is undergoing a big transition and your pets need to be included. Baby-Ready Pets was created by the Providence Animal Rescue League and the Rhode Island SPCA, and has been endorsed by the ASPCA. 

Baby-Ready pets is available at the shelter or upon request for groups of ten people or more at your location for a $10 Donation per person to support the animals of the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. Participants will also receive helpful handouts and a CD of baby sounds to help desensitize their pets to the sounds of the new arrival. This is a Human-Only workshop, so please leave your pets at home! To arrange for this workshop, please call (770) 532-6617 or email our Education Department at kelleyuber@hsnega.org
