About 1873 Society Club

In October 2009, the Atlanta Humane Society Board of Directors created a junior board, the 1873 Club, comprised of young professionals and philanthropists devoted to raising awareness and funds to support the mission of the Atlanta Humane Society. Our mission is combating animal cruelty and overpopulation by raising awareness and funds to support the Atlanta Humane Society’s Howell Mill Wellness Clinic. This state-of-the-art animal hospital not only provides veterinary care to the community at affordable prices, but also provides no-cost critical care to many animals subjected to abuse and cruelty.
