Atlanta Humane Society
Client ProfileThe Atlanta Humane Society is a no-kill shelter providing sheltering and adoption, veterinary care, and community outreach/resource distribution to the Atlanta Metro. As one of the oldest charities in Atlanta, Georgia, we have been caring for our community and animals for more than 148 years. We believe the relationship between humans and animals has deep significance, and we call on our city and each other to take action. Together, we put up a united front against cruelty, neglect, and displacement. With a heart to better lives, we connect homeless animals with good homes, provide neglected animals with safe spaces, and uplift our community by instilling compassion.
Project DescriptionA large part of what we do involves food and supply distribution programs - we would appreciate the opportunity to have a senior design team analyze our current distribution models to determine efficiency and identify opportunities for enhanced technology integration. This includes providing food/supplies to Animal Welfare Organizations statewide, individual pet owners in Metro Atlanta and providing support to human service organizations with established distribution models.
SkillsBased on the description above...latest/well rounded knowledge of technological opportunities, any warehouse/inventory management would be helpful but not necessary, knowledge of distribution channel opportunities, understanding of human service organizations active w/in Metro Atlanta as well as statewide (again, nice to have but not necessary).
