Registering for a mandatory volunteer training is the first step to becoming a volunteer with the Atlanta Humane Society. During this 2.5-hour session, you will learn about the history of the Atlanta Humane Society, our mission, and receive detailed information about the various volunteer opportunities available at the shelter.
You will also receive detailed information about handling animals and the general procedures and policies of the AHS. We ask that you be willing to make a mimimum 6 month commitment to volunteering.
While you do not need to purchase a ticket in advance for volunteer training, we do require a $25 donation at the time of training to cover the costs of volunteer supplies (t-shirt, apron, leash).

When & Where
Atlanta Humane Society
The mission of the Atlanta Humane Society is to improve animal welfare in the southeastern United States by providing quality animal services including preventative initiatives, education, advocacy and adoption of animals into permanent loving homes.
The Atlanta Humane Society places approximately 8,000 animals into forever homes each year. AHS is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. We do not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for the animals once they are in our care. We only humanely euthanize those animals suffering from significant medical issues or that pose behavior concerns. We are proud to be a part of the solution to ending pet homelessness and overpopulation in the Southeast United States.
