PAWS Atlanta receives receive no funding from federal, state or county governments. The vital services we offer to the community, are made possible by the thoughtful generosity of our supporters.

No Kill Philosophy

Our no-kill philosophy is very simple. It means that we give all of the animals in our care, the time, medical attention & behavioral training they need and deserve to thrive. Only terminally ill, where quality of life is suffering, or extremely aggressive animals who have been evaluated as such by independent, certified trainers will be euthanized. PAWS Atlanta never euthanizes a cat or dog due to space constraints.
