Established as a 501(c)3 in 1942, Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) is the oldest, private, non-religious charitable organization in Atlanta. AHS is committed to humane treatment of all animals and finding homes for all adoptable pets, placing approximately 8,000 animals each year. They do not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for the animals once they are in the care of AHS. AHS operates two shelters and a full service charitable veterinary clinic. One shelter is in downtown Atlanta, the original location of AHS; the other, which opened in December 2011, is in Alpharetta, an Atlanta suburb.
