NEW: Foster Sleepover Program AKA Slumber PAWties

COVID-19 Notice: Under the current circumstances, the Foster Sleepover Program is on hold until further notice.

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA) has introduced a new Foster Sleepover Program AKA Slumber PAWties!

According to a study done by Maddie’s Fund, a dog’s cortisol levels, a hormone that regulates stress, significantly dropped with just one overnight foster stay. This benefit alone can greatly increase the “adoptability” of rescues.

Slumber PAWties will not only give rescues a break from the shelter but also the potential at finding a new home.

For further information or questions, please contact HSNEGA’s Foster Coordinator at 770-532-6617 ext. 230 or

If you are new to the foster program, the Department of Agriculture requires HSNEGA to perform a home inspection.
