The Oconee Regional Humane Society was incorporated in March 1999 as a 501ę(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to help lost, abused, neglected, and abandoned animals.
We assist the local county animal control in finding homes for homeless pets and operate a network of foster homes for animals waiting to be adopted. Our organization is staffed entirely by volunteers. We have NO salaried employees.
We operate a rapidly growing spay/neuter program for the pets of low income residents in our community. We know of no other spay/neuter program that offers NO-COST surgeries for the pets of needy residents.
Come Meet our Pets:
Pets Supplies Plus 191 Alps Road Athens, GA 30606 every Sat 10am-4pm
Our Adoption Process:
Application required, $75.00 fee for cats, $150.00 for dogs. The fee includes spay or neuter, and appropriate shots for the age of the animal.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
