Welcome! I adopted Sydney from PAWS Atlanta back in 2004. I used to volunteer there as well and I have always been supportive of animal rescues. Now that we have moved back to Atlanta I'm excited to work with them again!
PAWS Atlanta is a no-kill facility for dogs and cats. No-Kill means that they give all of the animals in their care, the time, medical attention & behavioral training they need and deserve to thrive. PAWS Atlanta never euthanizes a cat or dog due to space constraints.
They also offer:
Pet Adoption & Foster Services
Bi-monthly Pet Wellness Clinics
Full-time veterinary services for the public
Low cost spay/neutering to reduce pet overpopulation
Discount health preventatives & pet dentals
Behavioral training to keep pets in their homes
Summer Camps for kids to teach the pet parents of tomorrow
A pet food bank for loving owners going through hard times
Senior support & pet matching assistance
Community outreach & education
PAWS Atlanta is governed by a board of directors and a small, but dedicated, staff cares for the pets in their free-roaming cat cottage, small and large dog area, isolation area for sick pets, and their animal intake areas. My favorite part of volunteering was they also have a lovely 3.5 acre walking trail and off-leash area where you can get to know their pets a little better.
