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 280 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. We are extremely grateful! The BISSELL Pet Foundation is committed to ending pet homelessness and finding a loving home for every pet.

PEDIGREE Foundation

We are grateful to be a grant recipient of the PEDIGREE Foundation. With their help, we are able to improve the lives of at-risk senior dogs in the Atlanta area by implementing the Seniors4Seniors programs. This program waives the adoption fees of senior citizens. 

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.
