Atlanta Humane Society is Opening in Alpharetta

Real Estate Agent with America's Network Realty Group, Inc


The Atlanta Humane Society has a new chairman William Shaheen, who has served as chairman of the board of the society since 2000.   President Carl Leveridge announced his pending retirement earlier this year.  He will remain in office until January.

 The Atlanta Humane society has had two important announcements, the first being the change in leadership and the second, the society is opening a new shelter in Alpharetta.  The shelter will be located at 1565 Mansell Road.  The grand opening event will take place on December 3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Americas Network Realty Group Inc Susan Jackson

 The facility is 32,000 sq ft and sits on seven acres.  There are large walking and playing areas for dogs, and four free-roam rooms for cats.  The shelter will be able to house 104 to 176 cats at a time, and 64 to 138 dogs.  Other services offered at the facility are: adoptions, pet facilitated therapy, a pet merchandise shop, obedience training and pet loss grief counseling.

 Mr. Shaheen said “ Puppies get adopted every weekend, but it is harder to find homes for older dogs.  The shelter on Howell Mill adopts out between 5000 and 6000 pets a year, and he hopes the Mansell location can double that number and especially find new homes for the older pets", as reported in the Alpharetta Neighbor.

That is great news, especially for all of the animals that will be brought into loving homes in the North Metro area!

Great info!  I didn't know.  We've adopted pets off Howell Mill.  Nice there will be a Humane society on the north end of Fulton County.

All the best, Michelle

Thanks Richard and Michele for stopping by.  Mr. Shaheen was quoted as saying"Up here in this community (North Fulton) where more homes have more yard space the older dogs will be easier to adopt out."

Great news, Susan.

  I hope that they will do everything possible to implement a "No Kill" policy.
