Our Partners

We save the lives of our 1,000 homeless animals each year with our no-kill philosophy through many amazing community partners. 

Second Life Atlanta

Second Life Atlanta is a nonprofit organization and friend of PAWS. They operate two community-focused resale stores that allow them to raise much-needed funds to benefit animal rescues and spay/neuter programs. When you shop at either of their two locations in Avondale Estates, you support the care and safety of pets all around the community through adoption, spay/neuter, and education/awareness. We also can't thank them enough for helping us save more lives by fostering cats in their two stores! Many times they take our cats who need it the most. Thank you for giving homeless pets a second chance at life.

Java Cats Café

Java Cats Café has literally been a lifesaver for our cats. This amazing business houses between 15-20 of our cats at any given time, which means more room at the shelter and more capacity to save lives. Java Cats gets our cats out of the shelter and into a friendly, loving, and comfortable space to be adopted. PAWS Atlanta kitties live at Java Cats Café until they are adopted, and they are never caged or crated. Since opening in March of 2017, Java Cats Cafe has placed over 360 cats (and counting) into loving homes. Because of them, we can save even MORE cats in need in Atlanta. 

Bissell Pet Foundation

Many thanks to the Bissell Pet Foundation for being a generous supporter of our spay/neuter program for our shelter pets at PAWS Atlanta. We are extremely grateful! The BISSELL Pet Foundation is committed to ending pet homelessness and finding a loving home for every pet.

Banfield Foundation

We are so grateful to the Banfield Foundation. Their generosity has helped us purchase much-needed medical equipment for our veterinary clinic and provide 920 doses of FirstShield flea products that are being given to families and individuals in need through our Pet Food Bank and special The Big Give Pet Food Drives. Most recently, the Banfield Foundation gave PAWS Atlanta a COVID Rebuild grant to help us provide medications, vaccines and overtime pay for our staff working hard to rebuild our capacity for pets in our community through our Vaccine Clinics.

Grey Muzzle Organization

The Grey Muzzle Organization is helping us make a big impact in our community.  With their support, we are able to provide the highest quality medical and preventative care for senior dogs in our care. The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other non-profit groups nationwide.

Rachael Ray/ Best Friends Animal Society

PAWS Atlanta is grateful to have received a Rachael Ray Save Them All COVID-19 Relief Grant from Best Friends Animal Society to help us purchase much-needed parasite prevention and prescription diets for our special needs dogs and cats at the shelter. Best Friends Animal Society is taking a stand for homeless pets to Save Them All.

Maddie's Fund

A million thanks to Maddie, the little dog that inspired a national revolution, Maddie's Fund. Through their generosity, we were awarded a Pet Foster Care Stimulus Grant and purchased much-needed foster supplies including harnesses, leashes, and food bowls.

PEDIGREE Foundation

We are grateful to be a grant recipient of the PEDIGREE Foundation to support our operations.  The PEDIGREE Foundation is working to find a solution to the problem of the millions of homeless dogs in this country. Through their grant programs, they support organizations that save the lives of dogs that would otherwise be lost.

Petfinder Foundation

A million thanks to the Petfinder Foundation, for their amazing support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of their generosity, we are able to purchase much-needed additional cleaning supplies for the shelter, along with providing medications for our senior dogs and cats.

Volunteer Photographers

Many thanks to our talented volunteer photographers Fred Strobel, Jen Gregg, and Laura Hardy for capturing our adoptable pets. For a homeless pet, a great photo can open the door to a new home.
