The vision of the Atlanta Humane Society is to be the premier leader and organizational resource for the welfare and protection of companion animals in the southeastern United States.

Throughout the summer and fall of 2014, under the leadership of President and CEO, Cal Morgan, a cross-functional group of staff, volunteers and Board members met to discuss and develop a new three year strategic plan.

STRATEGIC GOALS:

3. Expand Education and Community Outreach
4. Build Financial Strength & Organizational Strength
5. Develop long-term solution to facility needs
6. Leverage our Reputation

Atlanta Humane Society recruited nationally-recognized leadership and implementing national best practices of shelter management including the following : Cal Morgan, President and CEO has more than 16 years in animal welfare leadership and came to AHS from leading Michigan Humane Society. Michael Robbins, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, has more than 10 years of animal welfare marketing experience and was previously the Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer at the Michigan Humane Society. Monica Celizic, Vice President of Administration and Strategic Initiatives, has 14 years of animal welfare, advocacy and humane education experience from Michigan Humane Society. Dr. Jennifer Morris, DVM, Director of Shelter Medicine is dedicated to best practices of spay/neuter surgeries and expanding our opportunities to reach more animals.

Atlanta Humane Society has an annual work plan and budget with measurable objectives and goals benchmarked against the Three Year Strategic Plan.

In addition, each department maintains metrics on a dashboard to chart progress against goals.

In 2014, the Atlanta Humane Society was finding homes for approximately 7,000 animals each year. Over the next three years under the leadership of Cal Morgan, President and CEO, this number has grown to more than 11,000 lives saved, and we are currently on track to meet our goals for 2018. In addition to saving lives, we are improving animal welfare by offering low-cost spay and neuter services to reduce pet overpopulation and providing a voice for abused and neglected animals by launching our new Animal Cruelty Unit. AHS is currently poised for extensive growth, both in terms of the number of animal lives saved each year and the capacity to physically grow. We officially merged with the Georgia SPCA in 2018 and are looking to expand our presence in the Gwinnett County/Suwanee area. Additionally, AHS has plans to expand our Atlanta services and locations, particularly focusing on the West Side of Atlanta.
