About Us


Henry County Humane Society is a volunteer 501(c)(3) non profit organization licensed by the Georgia State Department of Agriculture.  We work closely with our local animal control facility to help reduce their numbers and find suitable homes for pets who have found themselves impounded and unwanted.

Our animals have been given age appropriate vaccinations, are spayed/neutered, dewormed and had capstar and/or frontline applied.    Dogs are heartworm negative and microchipped.  Cats are feline leukemia (Felv) and feline AIDS (FIV) negative. Pediatric spaying and neutering is performed on puppies and kittens as young as 8 weeks old.

Potential adopters must complete an application including vet references.  Fenced yards are required for large dogs and some smaller active breeds. ADOPTIONS ARE LIMITED TO THE METRO ATLANTA AREA. 

If you see an animal that you are interested in, please complete a preliminary adoption application. This application does not commit you to an adoption. It is used to screen those interested to make sure the home is a good match for the animal. If your application is approved, one of our volunteers will contact you via phone or email.

We are located at 46 Work Camp Road in McDonough, Georgia
