UPCOMING EVENTS

August 23-24, 2018 – Adoption Angel Lock-In
Are you passionate about saving animals and helping them find their forever homes?? Passionate enough to be locked in a kennel to help the rescues of the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA)??

Join HSNEGA and be #LockedUpForGood August 23 or 24! Each “penmate” will help raise their rescue’s bail and sponsor a portion or ALL of their adoption fee! HSNEGA is looking for 60 big-hearted “angels” to commit to being “locked-in” a kennel until their “bail” has been raised, with the lowest level being only $250! The goal is to raise $60,000 to support HSNEGA’s rescue/adoption efforts while also shining a light on the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledging the unconditional love of our faithful companions.

Interested in being a “penmate”? Email Kyra at KPhelps@HSNEGA.org now!
