Mission Statement:

The Georgia SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a non-profit pet rescue organization located in Suwanee, GA. Our Mission is to reduce the number of healthy animals euthanized in the State of Georgia by implementing successful adoption programs, and offering low cost spay/neuter to the public, and by promoting responsible pet ownership.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

As a "no kill" organization, all animals accepted by the Georgia SPCA are placed in an adoption center or foster home until suitable homes can be found. Prior to adoption our pets are fully vetted, which includes updated vaccinations (including rabies), disease testing, treatment for heartworm (if necessary), flea and tick and heartworm prevention, spay or neuter, and micro-chip. All animals are adopted with one month of free pet insurance.

Program History:

We have been located in Suwanee GA for 2 years.


Please see our web site for all upcoming events.

Some of our Happy Tail Stories:

Maxi, the Chihuahua, is one of 30 dogs rescued from a Jackson County Puppy Mill in July, 2010.  She had spent 6 years in a dark cage with no human contact or fresh air.  She is now living with a wonderful family in Suwanee and although it will be months or years before she is comfortable with her open surroundings, she is truly enjoying her life.  She is just one of thousands of dogs saved each year through the GASPCA. 

Dooley, the Boston Terrier, came from a trailer park in south GA.  An anonymous phone caller informed us that he had been tied to a tree for days.  One of our fantastic volunteers drove down and picked him up.  He tested positive for Heart Worms and is currently living with a foster family during his recovery.  His adoptive mother will pick him up as soon as the vet clears his health.

Darby's, the large Ridgeback mix, mom became ill with cancer and could no longer take care of her.  She did not want to see her go to a shelter where she may be euthanized.  The GASPCA took her in and the next day she was adopted by a loving couple.  She is living happily in Kennesaw now.

The little kitten was orphaned at 10 days old when his mother was hit by a car.  He has been adopted and is doing great!

These and so many other wonderful stories come through our shelter every day.  With your help, we can save so many more!
