2015 Shelter Intakes/Outcomes

2014 Shelter Intakes/Outcomes

*The Georgia SPCA is a limited admission shelter, and has a “no-kill” policy. This means that we do not euthanize animals because we need the space or because they have “run out of time.” We save as many healthy and treatable animals as we can, and when we take an animal into our care, that animal remains at our shelter or in a foster home until the right permanent home is found. We euthanize ONLY when an animal is so aggressive that it cannot be handled safely or when a medical condition cannot be treated or we do not have the funds and cannot secure donations to cover the costs of medical treatment. In the rare instances when euthanization is necessary, the decision is made in consultation with our veterinarian, and the animal is euthanized humanely by a veterinarian.
