The Atlanta Humane Society did its part in helping make room for pets in Texas who may have been lost or abandoned during Hurricane Harvey.
The Atlanta pet rescue agency took in 30 adoptable dogs and cats from the Louisiana SPCA and placed them at its Mansell Campus in Alpharetta. This allowed the Louisiana SPCA to free up space to assist with animal rescue efforts from Hurricane Harvey.
The pets that the Mansell Campus took in are available for adoption Monday. To create more space at the Mansell Campus, the Atlanta Humane Society is waiving adoption fees through the end of August for all dogs and cats who are one year or older.
Atlanta’s Humane Society says it is “anticipating a growing need” for it to take in more animals from shelters closer to Houston in the coming days.
Atlanta picked up these 30 pets from the Louisiana shelter on Friday night.
Atlanta’s Mansell Campus in Alpharetta is open from noon to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
It is located at 1565 Mansell Road.
