Gwinnett Humane Society was founded in 1979 to promote animal welfare. We strive to prevent cruelty to animals and reduce pet overpopulation by educating the public regarding humane treatment of animals, promoting responsible pet ownership, and encouraging spaying/neutering of companion animals.
Gwinnett Humane Society is a volunteer supported, 501c3 non-profit organization in metro Atlanta supported entirely by private donations. We receive no government funds and rely solely on donations and volunteers who donate their time and energy to improve the lives of pets and animals in our local community through Education, Support, Resource referral, and Adoption services.
We strive to promote animal welfare, to prevent cruelty to animals, and to reduce pet overpopulation by:
- Educating the public regarding the humane treatment of animals and responsible pet ownership
- Encouraging the spaying and neutering of companion animals
- Encouraging adoption of companion animals
