Business, School or Community Organization

Thank you for your interest in bringing your business or community organization to PAWS to volunteer. We usually enlist these groups to help with grounds maintenance tasks such as:

  • Weeding
  • Painting
  • Helping with small building projects
  • Spreading bark on our dog walking trail
  • Sorting animal crates, food, leashes and toys.

Please make arrangements at least two weeks in advance of the date you are requesting. Keep in mind that not all dates will be available.

All group volunteer projects are typically two hours in duration. Your group can select from a morning or afternoon shift.

Carpooling is encouraged. All volunteer work will be done at our shelter located at: 5287 Covington Highway, Decatur, Georgia 30035
