No-Kill Shelter

No-Kill Shelter

Athens Area Humane Society is a no-kill shelter dedicated to helping save lives and keep animals from being euthanized in our state. We are a limited intake shelter because we work closely with our state animal control facilities to rescue animals in need. Animal controls are overrun with pets in need of our help and they are our first priority. However, we also help people who are in need of surrendering a pet.

*If you want to surrender your pet to AAHS, please complete the form below and a staff member will contact you within 72 hours. Please keep in mind that we get many requests each day and do our best to reply to each and every one. Please understand that we will do our best to help, but we are not able to take in every animal we receive a request for. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Additional Information

LOST/FOUND PETS: We are not able to accept lost/found pets. We are happy to scan a pet for a microchip to help find the owner. Please call us or come by the shelter and we can scan a found pet anytime we are open. Otherwise, call the animal control of the county where you found the pet.
