Pictured at left is Patches, a sweet older dog that Southern Hope rescued from death row at a local animal control. Southern Hope took Patches and 200 other dogs to Connecticut for another pet adoptathon and all 200 dogs were adopted! Watch the heartwarming TV news video here.

Southern Hope Humane Society’s Transport Program began in 2000 and has rescued well over two thousand dogs! The dogs are rescued from local Atlanta area animal controls where they are in danger of being killed. The dogs are transported once or twice a month in our climate controlled bus to no-kill animal shelters in the Northeastern United States where they are quickly adopted. Read more about the Southern Hope transport program. Transports are very expensive, so please help us to continue this program by donating to the transport program.
