Meet the Team

 

The Staff of Humane Society for Greater Savannah is engaging in a proactive approach to end animal homelessness in our community.

At its core is the Pet Fix Savannah team, as having a high volume, low-cost, spay-neuter clinic is essential to reducing our homeless pet population.

Our team also aims to provide a safety net to families struggling to care for their pets through a pet food pantry, housing assistance, training resources, and medical care.

People will continue to face struggles and have to make the difficult decision to surrender their pets.

Our Operations team is committed to providing high-quality care to our community’s homeless pets.
