HI I'm Banjo. I'm almost 3 and full of energy.
I've been living the shelter life for a long time but it hasn't gotten my spirit down. I'm still SUPER playful and really sweet and I LOVE a good sprint around a yard! Once inside I'm a sucker for the couch or bed. Remember.. I've been in the shelter for a long time. I'm no fool. I know what comfort is!
Besides being super cute..... I'm house broken, I don't chew on things and I am alert to my surroundings... I mean look at these ears! I can hear things like a mile away!
I'm good on a leash and love to go for runs. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise.
Once I learn how to let other dogs pass without trying to play with them I will be golden. My desire to play comes across as aggressive but I'm not mean. I just need an owner that will take the time to teach me manners. Will you help me?
Do you like to go for runs or walks outside? Do you have a comfy couch or bed? ummm have you SEEN this face and these EARS?? :)
Get me. Once we bond we will have such a great time together. I know I'm a strange mix, BUT I HAVE BEEN DNA TESTED!!

About Atlanta Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit (IRS Tax ID# 58-0685900) and the oldest private charitable organization in Atlanta, founded in 1873 following a visit to the city by Robert E. Lee. The animal charity was originally chartered to protect women, children, and animals and remained a child protection and animal welfare society for 79 years. AHS, now a widely recognized pet adoption center, clinic, and educational program provider, was originally located on Marietta Street and moved to its location at 981 Howell Mill Road in the 1930s. Atlanta Humane Society's Mansell Road Adoption Facility was opened in December of 2011 in Alpharetta.

It is our mission to prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty and exploitation of animals and to assure that their interests and well-being are fully, effectively and humanely protected by an aware and caring society.

Atlanta Humane Society places approximately 8,000 animals into forever homes each year. AHS is committed to finding homes for all adoptable pets. We do not euthanize adoptable animals, and there are no time limits for the animals once they are in our care. We only humanely euthanize those animals suffering from significant medical issues or that pose behavior concerns. We are proud to be a part of the solution to ending pet homelessness and overpopulation in the Southeast United States.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting, please come in during our adoption hours to meet our adoptable pets. No appointment is required. Once you find an animal you are ready to adopt, you will be asked to comeplete a preliminary questionnaire. We do not hold animals and all adoptions are done on a first come, first served basis.
The basic requirements for adoption from the Atlanta Humane Society are as follows: you must be at least 18 years of age with a valid, government issued, photo I.D.If you have other dogs or children, they may be required to meet the animal prior to adoption.
