How YOU can help!

Adopt a Pet

If you would like to adopt one of our great animals, please visit our ADOPT page to view our current adoptable pets and to download an application.


We subsist solely on adoption fees, the benevolence of donors, and occasional fundraisers.
We always welcome donations of any kind. If you are unable to adopt or foster, a great way to help us out is to donate.
Monetary donations are always welcome, but we can also use any of the following:

  • Portable kennels
  • Dry dog or puppy food
  • Dry cat or kitten food
  • Flea products: Advantage, Frontline, Capstar
  • Leashes, all sizes
  • Collars: large, medium, small, and breakaway
  • Dog/Cat beds
  • Cat litter/clumping
  • Cat toys
  • Clean towels
  • Commercial bleach
  • Liquid dish soap

All donations are tax-deductible! Just come by with your donations and see one of our friendly staff
members. We will welcome you with open arms!

Georgia Gives Day

Georgia Gives Day is an initiative that has been co-created by the nonprofit sector itself. It doesn’t support one cause or one locale – it’s all of us in the state’s nonprofit sector pulling together to ask you to stop and consider your life and your community without nonprofits. How much less connected, less vibrant, less interesting and less supported would our communities be without them?

Georgia Gives Day is really about us all – it’s about everyone pulling together to support the organizations and causes right in our own backyards and across the state that have been a part of our lives since day one.

So, we are asking all Georgians, on November 28th, to give a little and share a little so that, together, we can do a lot for the causes that we all care about. Whether you have $10 or $10,000 to give, it all adds up to greater impact on the issues that support and enrich our lives and make our local communities thrive.

Help your favorite non-profit, Etowah Valley Humane Society, by donating today!
