Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PAWS Atlanta is closed to the public to do our part to slow the spread of the virus. Due to the DeKalb County Shelter-In-Place Executive Order, daily operations will be handled by staff only. Volunteers are no longer allowed on site until further notice.
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:
- 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.
For our group volunteer projects, we ask for a donation fee of $250 to help us continue to care for our shelter pets until they find loving homes. You can make this donation for your group opportunity here.
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
Sneakers only, please. Wear clothes that are OK to get dirty.
Most, if not all volunteer work is done outside, rain or shine.
