This is the best shelter experience, bar none. Friendly staff and they care about all the dogs and will tell you all about the ones you're interested in. If you're thinking about adopting, this is the best place to do it at.
This was the first time we adopted and it was amazing. You guys were so friendly and helpful and we continue to bring Bentley by for visits and he remembers all the staff that took great care of him for his short stay there. We will continue to recommend you all to friends and family and will probably see you in the future!! ❤️
Thank you for your kind words and for giving Bentley a loving home! ~Dom
I began volunteering at this shelter last fall. I can tell you that animals that come to this shelter are very well cared for. The staff and volunteers make sure that they get plenty of attention, including outdoor play time for the dogs. They work very hard to make sure that all the animals in their care find good homes.
Thank you for dedicating your time as a volunteer to help the rescues!! ~Dom
When we came to the humane society I have been grieving a lost pet for several weeks. We came to the clear the shelter event in March and I was hoping to make a connection. We ended up adopting Andy Dwyer now Moonie and he has helped me heal my broken heart. The event was very organized in the staff was very friendly and informative.
We are sorry for your loss. Thank you so much for opening up your heart and home to Moonie! ~Dom
We drove over two hours, just to come adopt our sweet pup, and everyone on staff that day couldn't have been more kind and friendly (both on the phone, and in person). I would adopt from here again in a heart beat.
Thank you for giving a rescue a loving home and for the kind words and 5-star review! ~Dom
I am a volunteer with this shelter and have been for many years. The staff does a superb job with all the needs of the animals. Our foster coordinator works tirelessly getting great fosters for so many of our animals. They have great enrichment for our dogs and cats. As a dog walker, we are provided toys, pools and treats to keep our dogs smiling. This shelter is one of the cleanest , and the community comments on this continually. This humane society saves many lives from other area shelters, and takes young, old, heart-worm positive and injured animals. I love volunteering here.
Marilyn, we can't thank you enough for the countless hours you have dedicated to showing the rescues the best that humans can be! ~Dom
My experience with the Humane Society Northeast Georgia is great! They try to take as many animals as possible from different area shelters, so as to give these animals a second chance. They have helped so many Mama dogs have their babies. They continually are making positive improvements to better serve the community. But, best of all, the volunteers love what we do. Socializing, loving and playing with the orphans bring joy to our hearts. We love the dogs get soft music to enjoy and warm blankets. Our dogs are happy, while waiting for their forever homes. Great place!!
Love this place! Our sweet baby rescued us on Nov 26, 2019. Easiest process to adopt. Also use the wellness clinic for our vaccines! Wonderful people and organization!!
Thank you for giving a rescue a loving home and your kind words and 5-star review! ~Dom
Absolutely the BEST experience I could have hoped for when adopting my puppy! Staff with HSNEGA accomodated my busy schedule, allowed time for me to bond with the puppy and didn't rush through the process. Plus, I could tell they are very thorough about their background checks and making sure each animal is going to a caring home. I love the staff here and they are always SO kind and helpful. They are PAWfect!!!
Thank you for your kind words! We can't thank you enough for giving a rescue a chance at a loving home! ~Dom
We absolutely loved our experience here! They went above and beyond to help us and we are so grateful! We were there early, let us look but not touch, I was back an hour before they opened to make sure no one else got him! How we lived without him we’ll never know! ❤️ Gotcha day pic!
Thank you for giving a rescue a loving home!! Your kind words mean so much to our team! ~Dom
We had a wonderful experience in adopting our two kitties. The staff member was kind and efficient and there were safety protocols in place that made us feel very safe while in the building.
Thank you for your review! Your pictures are precious! Thank you for opening up your heart and home to rescue when they needed you the most. ~Dom
We adopted Moxie on April 5 2018. I have never had a better experience with adopting a dog. They had taken great care of her.They took their time and helped pick out the right dog for me. She is the joy of my life. We drove from Snellville the Gainesville to get her and I am so glad.
Thank you for adopting Moxie and for your kind words! I'm not sure if you've seen the blog but I wrote a blog about Moxie's fun times on the Pooch Pontoon! HSNEGA.org/aboard-pooch-pontoon/ ~Dom
I had been considering getting another dog for several years. I have been working in retirement and when Covid entered I stopped working. That’s when I saw Buddy and his seven littermates. I quickly went over for a visit and he and I were the perfect match. The process was smooth and easy even during a pandemic . He is the companion I needed
Thank you for your kind words and for giving Buddy a loving home! ~Dom
Truly a special place! They first take in some really special babies then help them find the perfect match...and we have found ours! Thank you for your dedication and service to some really special animals!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to leave us a review! More importantly, thank you for giving a rescue a chance at the loving home they deserve. ~Dominique, Marketing Coordinator
Not only have my boys volunteered here in the past and enjoyed the opportunity to visit and care for the animals, when we lost our Ellie this past fall we knew we needed to find a rescue for us and went to visit HSNEGA. Low and behold...We found the most perfect fellow for us there. All of the staff were kind, thoughtful and truly cared about the animals. We were very pleased and continue to enjoy the communications back and forth with them! We are SO very thankful for our sweet Leo and the care he received prior to adoption!
Thank you so much for giving him hope and the love he deserves! ~ Sam, Development Director
We had the wrong hours and when my husband and I went so that he could help pick our new family member before he had to go to work, they went above and beyond to let us see the babies before he had to go! I was able to go back at their scheduled hours and adopt our new baby!! Thrilled!
Koreen, thank you for taking the time to give us a review and for giving a rescue a chance at a loving home! We are glad we could help you find your new furbaby! ~Dominique, Marketing Coordinator
Great people! Clean establishedment . Great prices!
Sheryl, thank you for your kind words and 5-star review! ~Dominique, Marketing Coordinator
We saw our dog on the morning news, I think we beat them back to the shelter to get Einstein. 2 months later we came back for Ginger! Best run facility we have ever seen. Truly a one stop shop- they do it all from rescue to veterinary care. Now we take on fosters for them as well.
Thank you! Talk about a one-stop shop, your family seems to be the one-stop family, from two-time adopters to foster, we couldn't ask for more! THANK YOU! ~ Sam, Development Director
We adopted our Gracie Blue from the Humane Society and could not be happier. The entire experience was a dream!
Thank you for giving Gracie Blue a Forever Home! ~ Sam, Development Director
I have adopted two fur babies from HSNEG. The facility is very clean and you can tell the employees truly love and care for the animals. Julie Edward's has a hugh heart for animals and goes over and beyond to make sure they are loved and cared for until they find their forever homes. I have also used their clinic for shots and was very pleased with the service.
Thank you both for stepping up for you two babies! I hope Indy is doing well and your other furbaby, too! We sincerely thank you. ~ Sam, Development Director
We have adopted two fur babies from the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. The staff is very loving and caring for the animals that are in their care. Julie Edwards and her staff are very concerned about where they place these loving and deserving pets. We adopted are first fur baby 5 years ago and she is the most awesome dog. We adopted our second fur baby in October 2017. He had been featured on Fox 5 and was in need of a loving and caring family. When we went to check him out, he was actually in one of the staffs office. They had fallen in love with him. They had taken him in and treated him with love and even did a video on how he looked when he was brought in. All his ribs were actually showing and they affectionately named him Indiana Bones. We brought him home and two weeks later they reached out to us to see how Indy was doing. They even had us bring him in for an update. That's how loving and concerned they are about the animals that are in their care.
I definitely recommend that if you are in search of a loving pet please visit HSNEG. They are pawsome!!!
I have adopted from HSNEGA multiple times in the past; however, at present I have Miss Prissy and Pupper. Prissy is a special needs Yorkie that was rescued from the Hanersham puppy mill and had lived (and bred) in a cage/run along with 450+ other animals, eating bread and water. Pupper was rescued from an abusive situation and found by the authorities as he was being choked and beaten until he defecated. In addition, I have had the opportunity to get to know HSNEGA personnel and volunteers and have learned firsthand the extent of the care and dedication of these wonderful individuals and the exceptional organization that serves our area.
Thank you for YOUR dedication to very special pups! They are the ones that oftentimes get overlooked and they truly wouldn't have homes without amazing people like YOU! ~ Sam, Development Director
We adopted our sweet pup from HSNEGA in 2014 and it was the best experience ever. The staff was so helpful during the decision making process. They also had him fixed and chipped. We love him so much! We make donations every year to help other future fur-babies get a good start!
Thank you for giving your baby a forever home and for continuing to give all the other rescues a chance with your amazing gifts! We couldn't do it without YOU! ~ Sam, Development Director
We looked for months for the right German Shepherd dog. When we heard about the hoarding case in Candler County, we hoped for one of these neglected babies. Although he still has a ways to go, he has shown huge improvements in health and temperament. He is a beautiful creature. The ladies at Humane Society of NEGA were a pleasure to work with!
Thank you for taking him in! Those dogs had been through a lot and deserve a loving family like yours! Thank you again. ~ Sam, Development Director
I have 4 rescues from HSNEGA and 2 of them are habersham puppy mill rescues. The staff at HSNEGA are the best and love the animals and go the extra mile on all there rescues. Highly recommend HSNEGA as the place to adopt your next pet..
Chuck - THANK YOU! I cannot say it enough to someone as supportive as YOU!!! ~ Sam, Development Director
I have adopted 2 fur babies from the humane society of northeast ga. The first was Nellie a solid black mix that replaced a dog we lost then I read about the amazing rescue in habersham and new I had to help. Ended up adopting angel a 5 year old Maltese who had been through hell but they got her shaved and operated on her timer and spade her. Now she is a very happy spoiled rotten dog thanks to the beautiful people at humane society of northeast ga. Fostering a second dog Carl helping get him socialized for adoption. Best organization to work with. They really care about the animals !!!!!
I adopted my first dog, Snow, from HSNEGA back in June 2016. She was from a large puppy mill bust, and HSNEGA made sure I understood what extra steps I might need to do for her as far as care to make her the most comfortable and to help her adjust to her new life.
I loved that they strived to keep the facilities clean, even in the areas where the animals stayed. I have found that that is rare in humane societies elsewhere. I also loved that it was obvious their main priority was the animals and their wellbeing. The staff here truly have a deep love for animals and providing the best care and forever homes possible.
Best humane society I've ever visited!
WOW what high praise! Our staff was so pleased to see that. Thank you for saving lives as an adopter! ~ Sam, Development Director
Super nice people that made it easy to find the right pup for me!
Thank you so much for adopting! ~ Sam, Development Director
We got 3 of our animals from the Humane Society. The first one was "The little Orphaned" now Cali, Spartacus and our latest addition last May Hazelnut. Staff is caring and helpful. The Humane Society of Hall County is my favorite charity. I know the money is going to the right place.
Thank you so much, Joanne! we could not do it without people like you in the world who go above and beyond for the rescues!
We've adopted not once but twice from HSNEGA! This organization is top-notch. Well run and the people there really do have the best interests of the animals in mind at all times. They have recently built new enrichment areas for the animals under their care to give them not only a great experience while they are in their care but to better prepare them and make them more adoptable!
They do great things with every single dime they get and are continuously developing better ways to fundraise and then turn that money into the a first class place for the animals in their care!
Terri, YOU make these wonderful things you said possible. We love the Bark Park and so do the rescues and we thank you for helping make all these things PAWsible! ~ Sam
Of all the non-profits and charitable causes I support, the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is by far my favorite. The organization is led by Julie Edwards who has more heart and compassion that any 10 people I know.
I have supported this organization financially for over 10 years and have two adopted dogs from them as well. The animals are LOVED, cared for, and rehabilitated until they can find their forever homes. The organization is filled with people with caring hearts and creativity to find the best homes for the often abused and unloved.
Watching the journey of each animal through social media is inspiring and at times heart-wrenching. It does give you just a quick peek at a group that has dedicated themselves to the most vulnerable.
If you want to put your money somewhere where every single penny is used for its exact purpose, this is the place!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! we truly could not do it without committed people like YOU! ~ Sam
Our family has adopted from HSNEGA several times and we have also used the clinic for rabies vaccination and microchipping. It is always so clean and you can tell how much the animals are loved and how well cared for they are.
We had a few heartbreaks with our pets in 2017 and we searching for another puppy to join our family. It seems like every day I was looking at different rescue groups and organizations but none of them ever worked out. After talking with the director of HSNEGA about what we were looking for she found our sweet Oscar. He has filled a hole in our hearts and lives. I would adopt from HSNEGA again and again. They are doing wonderful things for animals, not just in our county but all over the state.
Thank YOU so much for your kind words and support as adopters! We couldn't do it without you! ~ Sam, Development Director
I have adopted multiple times over the years from this Humane Society and they have always been wonderful to work with. They are also great partners in our community. I am thankful for the wonderful people at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia.
Mrs. Killingsworth? Is that you? :) THANK YOU for adopting and helping us find amazing young mentorees for our internship programs. You help make this all possible! ~ Sam, Development Director
The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is amazing. We went to look at the dogs one day and we fell in love with Bear, it was closing time and they stayed late so that we could take her home with us that day. The love they show the animals is heart felt when you walk in. They help so many other shelters out. Our sweet girl was from another shelter. We are so glad they give older dogs a chance.
Thank you for giving Bear a chance at love and a forever home! ~ Sam, Development Director
We have been looking for a puppy that would fit right in with our go go family! And we found him here at the humane society of northeast Georgia! They Answered all out questions and made us feel so welcomed! With their help we found the perfect pup for us! Sweet,fun, loving, Theodore (Theo)
We are so glad Theo found your family! Thank you for adopting! ~ Sam, Development Director
In the process of adopting a mischevious pup that we had met through it's foster family, it was obvious that HSNEGA is a labor of love for its staff and volunteers. I appreciate their conscientious effort on behalf of our community and all of the animals they serve!
Thank you for adopting! ~ Sam, Development Director
Our family was so pleased with the service and help we received while visiting. We previously checked two county shelters in hopes of adopting a new dog. No matches were to be found at either shelters. Disappointed but hopeful to rescue a dog that we could love for the rest of his/her life we found the humane society of northeast Georgia via petfinder. We went for a visit and the staff were so extremely helpful and took their time with us. We found our match in a 5 year old female pit bull terrier mix named Baby Girl. She is the sweetest most loving dog and has stolen our hearts since we brought her home. We could see that she was so well taken care of the time she was there by the volunteers and staff. She loves to cuddle, give kisses and loves playing with other dogs and people. Baby Girl probably wouldn’t be the dog she is today without the love and care she received while her time there. I’m so thankful for organizations like this that make not only a difference in the life of an animal but for families as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us find our newest family member, we couldn’t be happier! Keep up the great work that you do!
BABY GIRL! I hope she is well. Thank you so much for your kind words and support! ~ Sam, Development Director
This week, we adopted our second family member from HSNEGA. The staff were instrumental in helping us identify the perfect pet to add to our home, arranging multiple meet and greets with our current pup to assure a good fit and providing valuable feedback on the dogs’ interactions. This is a highly dedicated group with a true love for the animals in their care and are dedicated to finding their perfect forever families.
We couldn't do it without people like YOU! ~ Sam, Development Director
In April of 2017, I stopped by the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia to visit with their animals. I wasn’t looking to adopt, as I was still grieving the loss of our dog ten months earlier. From the minute I walked in, I could feel the love that these wonderful folks have for these rescues. Animals are not just pets here, they are family and the staff and volunteers do everything they can to assure that these furry family members are placed in the perfect home with the perfect family. With their help, I found the most wonderful furball to join our family. I can’t say enough about the fantastic work being done here!
I adopted Blake 3 years ago. Love him bunches. I also adopted a cat many years ago and had Kitty for 17 years. They give such good care to the animals. They are an example of what a humane society for animals should be like.
Such a great organization! I have adopted twice from the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. They have a wonderful health clinic and throw great events. The faculty, staff, and volunteers truly care about these animals. It is very heartwarming.
We took my dog Bella here to get her spayed and they were absolutely wonderful. The team that operated on Bella gave us clear instructions for when we took her home that I appreciated. Bella is also a very shy dog and when she came out she seemed less shy then when she went in. They did mention that to us, and we have taken their suggestion and been socializing her more. She is still not fond of people, but she is better. I am so thankful for HSNEGA for what they have fine for me and my puppy.
These folks really care about the animals here! Thank you so much for connecting us with our Lugnut! We love Lugz!
I highly recommend Northeast Georgia Humane Society to anyone looking for a pet! They took such great care of their animals and the staff is so helpful! It’s obvious they truly want what’s best for their animals. Both my friend and I both got dogs from their recently and we are both feel forever grateful to the Northeast Georgia Humane Society.
I’ve been volunteering at the humane society of northeast Georgia since 2016 and it’s my favorite place! The volunteers are dedicated and the staff make it an awesome place to give back to the community and animals. The mission is at the heart of everything done by the staff, board members, and volunteers. Little by little, the team works to make it the best animal shelter for the animals and for the community.
I moved to the Hall County area in 2017 and was looking for a way to connect in the community and help animals. I started volunteering my time 1-2 days a week which ramped up to 3-5 days a week very quickly. I am proud to be a part of the team of regular volunteers who walk the dogs (rain or shine) and love on puppies and kitties while they wait for their forever homes. The staff works diligently to care for and place animals into good homes. I can't take them all home, but I can love them while they are at the shelter during their transition time to a new home.
Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is the BEST! Julie Edwards does a great job directing all activities and helping all the little fur babies find their forever home. And that makes for a happier community!
I have not adopted from here but got involved with them through Miss Ga Northlands. I am so excited about all the LOVE and CARE they give these deserving furbabies!!! ALL the PEPOLE there go out of their way to help. It's ALL nonprofit too!
HSNEGA is the best! They took care of my sweet Twain until I adopted him and I couldn’t have had a better experience.
Thank you for giving him a home! I hope Twain is well. we loved that guy! ~ Sam, Development Director
I adopted tigger a cat from shes great and healthy the volunteers were great
Julie Edwards and her team at HSNEGA are phenomenal! They have a huge passion for animals and for educating our community about animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. This passion has created an extraordinary organization that goes above and beyond every single day!
Great organization. They do great things for all the animals in their care. They see some sad things in this line of work...but they keep going...helping those who have no voice....Big Hearts to do what they do.
The HSNEGA team is exceptional! They go above and beyond for all animals in need in the Gainesville area and surrounding counties. Their level of compassion and professionalism has far exceeded my expectations. It's been an absolute pleasure working with Julie and her team. We're lucky to have such a fine organization in our community!!
Julie Edward's team really has this place humming and their care reaches well beyond Hall County. As just one example, their efforts with a recent rescue of dozens of abused dogs from a neighboring county was truly heroic! Kudos to Julie, Dr. Feroli and the rest of the HSNEGA team!
The attential to detail and care of these animals surpasses any other facilityblike it. The dogs are loved and cared for, great medical staff and a Spa environment for a calming change. Aromatherapy is used in the kennels!!
The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia has been a lifesaver for us at Logan's Run Rescue. When we get "dumped" with dozens of puppies HSNEGA works with us to take them and find homes for them. Their staff is always very efficient, friendly and works hard to make things happen. Special kudos to Julie Edwards who reaches out to everyone and as many animals as she can.
The staff & volunteers here are A+, knowledgeable & with hearts of pure gold!. They work tirelessly day & night, literally! We love each & every one of them. A few months ago they rescued our precious 4yr old Belle from a horrific puppy mill situation....too gruesome & horrifying to even describe. They nursed her back to health, loved on her as much as she would let them & even after we adopted her have continued to offer support & rehabilitation opportunities for her & us. They are THE BEST!
I have volunteered at this shelter with my daughter for over 5 years. They are simply amazing. I have adopted from them and use their Wellness Clinic for my pets. I encourage my friends to find their new family members at this shelter. The staff and volunteers treat the animals with loving care and go above and beyond to make sure that all animals have daily walks, playtime, and socialization along with basic obedience training. It is a wonderful place for me and my daughter to give back to the community by spending our weekend hours with animals that are looking for attention and a friend to play with them. Everyone there is truly a Lifesaver!
I’ve been a volunteer and contributor to the Hall County Humane Society since I moved to Gainesville six years ago.
The organization cares so deeply for the animals. The staff is dedicated and the organization continues to make a difference in the community.
The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is wonderful! They are on the front lines of serving our community through education and outreach with animal welfare. I started as a volunteer with this organization 14 years ago. Since then I have become a donor, and have adopted two furry family members from here. Now, I am delighted to be serving as a board member. I highly recommend this organization to anyone that is looking to adopt, volunteer, or donate to an organization committed to the humane care of animals.
I adopted both my dogs from the Humane Society Of NE Ga. I have watched the growth at HSNEGA over the past 9 years and have been so impressed and touched by the good work and dedication of the current director and her staff! They work tirelessly to help the animals in our county and go out of their way in offering their help wherever the need calls from. Thank you, Julie, and everyone at HSNEGA for your love and caring!
August 6 2017 my niece and her daughter drove from Macon to Gainesville to adopt a dog. I had been very touched with HSNEG involvement with the dogs of Habersham County. What a success!
SUGAR is so loved. I was very impressed with the facility and the staff who took such care in matching the dog and the people. Thank you!
We bring our dog to HSHC to get his shots and everyone is friendly & helpful. Very quick, you don’t wait long. Always a positive experience for our dog & our family.
I am a volunteer for the Humane Society of Northeast GA so I see what goes on behind the scenes. These folks truly love and care for the Animals. The placement process (to make sure dogs and cats go to a proper environment and loving home) is thorough. If animals need extra attention (really sick or traumatized) they are placed in foster homes until they are well enough to be adopted out. I’ll continue to donate my time and money to this place.
Such a fantastic organization! I have volunteered at HSNEGA's adoption angel lock-in for 2 years & it is awesome to see the love they have for the furry friends in their care. They go above & beyond to make sure everyone is safe & shown lots of love. They work diligently to find caring adoptive homes for everyone. Their community outreach is inspiring. From their adoption efforts to their spay & neuter program, low cost wellness clinic, training classes & educational programs - this is an amazing & dedicated group!
The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia provided us with the best pet companion I could want. He was a 5 year old rescue dog from a puppy mill who had not known human love. His foster Mommy at the Human Society of NE GA provided all that was needed to transform our Snickers into a wonderful pet. They went beyond the usually mandated shots and birth control by transitioning him into our home fully groomed with his favorite dog food, doggie treats, and toys. They also provided him with his own bed, leash, collar,and harness. And his foster Mommy followed up with us several times to make sure the transition to our home was a smooth one. Cudos to the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia for their love and care of animals.
We found our beloved Einstein while visiting HSNG- we fell in love immediately! So much so we came back for more! They really make the experience fantastic, with a clean facility and helpful volunteers and staff.
Although I have not personally adopted from this shelter, I do follow their efforts. Julie & her staff do an amazing job of spreading community awareness for animal welfare. The Northeast GA Humane Society is a huge asset to Gainesville and the surrounding areas, and the staff and volunteers demonstrate an unyielding passion for the animals in their care.
This past year I volunteered as an angel lock in to a very sweet older dog that was also an returned adoption. The staff made sure to give me her history so I could share it with all those coming to see the dogs. Not only did this help me make my donation goal it really made me want to help her find her home. The staff are amazing and you can see how much they care about all the animals they care for. I'm happy to say sweet Ellie found her forever home.
My daughter and I have volunteered at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia for the last year, and it has been a wonderful experience for both of us! The staff always make us feel welcome and appreciated, and we love caring for the animals. Last weekend we adopted a puppy that had captured our hearts and she is the perfect addition to our family. Can't say enough wonderful things about HSNEGA!
