Over the last two years, the Humane Society for Greater Savannah has worked diligently toward achieving the goals set out in its Strategic Plan. (The Plan as well as Fiscal Year 2011-12 results can be found by clicking “Annual Report” at the bottom of the column on the left.) At its February meeting, the Board of Directors adopted new vision and mission statements that reflect the progress made and its commitment to continuing service to our community.
The vision of the Humane Society for Greater Savannah is a community where every pet has a safe and loving home with a responsible owner.
The mission of the Humane Society for Greater Savannah is to help ensure that all pets live in loving homes with responsible owners by conducting adoptions and providing education, owner assistance and affordable spay and neuter services.
History: More than 55 years ago, a group of concerned animal lovers joined together to organize The Humane Society of Chatham-Savannah, Inc. In February 1985, the Humane Society was incorporated under the laws of the State of Georgia. In November of the same year, we were recognized as a federally tax-exempt 501(c)3 charity under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.In January 2010, we changed our name to The Humane Society for Greater Savannah – to more accurately describe our area of service. All funding of The Humane Society for Greater Savannah is by private donation from individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations; bequests; special events; grants; and from the proceeds of our “Pick of the Litter” Thrift Shop. We receive NO funding from any government agency, and NO money from any other animal welfare organization including the Humane Society of the United States.The Humane Society for Greater Savannah is proud to be a Drug Free Workplace.
