During June, we were able to save 1,184 lives, thanks to our wonderful adopters, fosters, volunteers and donors! Over a thousand animals are sleeping soundly in their forever homes and we couldn't be more thankful. But with 60 animals coming through our shelter doors every single day (that's 420 in a week!), there's still so much more work to be done. Help us save more lives than ever during the highest intake months of the year!
Crate training is an essential part of integrating a new dog into your home. Going from the shelter environment to a new, big home can be very scary for a dog.

To help get her adopted, our volunteers have been taking her out for adventures all over Atlanta this week! From the Atlanta BeltLine to Decatur Square, Makya has loved her week out on the town!
