Tyson is a young adult dog of just over 5 years old. When you meet this bouncy rat terrier mix, you have no clue he is 5. Tyson has a spring in his step and notices all the activity in the shelter. He prances like a young stallion as he struts by the visitors on his walk out to the play yard. Tyson's leash manners are excellent and he has mastered the sit command. In the play yard, Tyson enjoyed chasing the bees and showed some interest in the canine friend in the next run. He nicely barked and said hello! His previous owner noted that Tyson can be anxious around small children so a home with older children would be best. If you think this handsome man would be a good match for your family, bring the teenagers and any doggy siblings to AHS to meet Tyson. He was previously altered

About Atlanta Humane Society - Alpharetta

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.
