Create a community recognized for responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of animals through offering basic pet wellness and spay/neuter services, public education and placement of companion animals.
Who We Are
Serving Hall County and many other counties across Georgia since 1913, the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) provides vital services to animals and people alike. A private, non-profit organization that receives no public or government funding, we are supported solely by private donations, grants, bequests, investments and some fees.
What We Do
HSNEGA is a no-kill facility, meaning our placement rate is greater than 90%. We take in animals from owners and other rescue organizations as space allows. All healthy or treatable animals stay with us until they find their FURever home. We only euthanize when severe or untreatable illnesses or behavior issues arise AND only when we’ve exhausted all other options. See our Lifesaving Stats here.
Our programs and services include:
- Adoption of Companion Animals
- Bessie B’s Pet Store
- Spay/Neuter Center
- Community Cat Program
- Low-cost Wellness Clinic
- Owner Surrender
- Intakes Shelters/Rescue Organizations from other shelters throughout Georgia
- Foster Care Program
- Corporate Volunteering
- Pet-Assisted Therapy (on hold due to COVID-19)
- Youth Service Projects
- Educational Programs
- Shelter Tours
- Pet P.A.L.S. Summer Camp
Give with Confidence

Some have already found their forever homes, but some may still be here at HSNEGA!
