NEW: Foster Sleepover Program AKA Slumber PAWties

Can I sleepover at your place?

Volunteer COVID-19 Notice: Under the current circumstances, we are in great need of fosters. If you are able to foster, please complete the Emergency Foster Plea form by clicking HERE.

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) has introduced a new Foster Sleepover Program AKA Slumber PAWties!

According to a study done by Maddie’s Fund, a dog’s cortisol levels, a hormone which regulates stress, significantly dropped with just one overnight foster stay. This benefit alone can greatly increase the “adoptability” of rescues.

Slumber PAWties will not only give rescues a break from the shelter but also the potential at finding a new home.


If you are new to the foster program, the Department of Agriculture requires HSNEGA to perform a home inspection.
