It's All About the Animals!

Our Mission and Goals



The Albany Humane Society is dedicated to the welfare of animals who cannot speak for themselves.
If we are to continue meeting the needs of hungry, sick and homeless animals, we will need your help.  We presently provide housing for the animals of Albany and Dougherty County.  We accept strays turned in by concerned citizens, as well as pets surrendered by their owners. We are currently on the path to no-kill!

Our goals are:

Educating the public about their pets.
Reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter initiatives.

Provide compassionate care for unwanted animals.

Thank you for your support!!

Albany Humane Society provides:
Humane Education

Cremations for pets who have crossed the rainbow bridge.

Microchipping to assist as many returns to owner as possible.
