Youth Volunteers

At PAWS Atlanta, we love our volunteers! We know that it "takes a village" to run a no-kill animal shelter and we are grateful for all of the volunteers that contribute everyday with their time and talent.

Our individual volunteers do need to be 18 years old and over. However, a school group, club or youth organization can bring adult chaperones for a group of young volunteers, we will try our best to accommodate. Please understand, we do not have the staff to chaperone and/or supervise our youth, therefore this requirement is very important.

Would you like to bring a school group, club or youth organization to PAWS Atlanta for a tour and perhaps a service project? Please send an email to with your desired dates, times, number of participants and number of chaperones (must have one adult chaperone for every four youth.)

Thank you for thinking of PAWS Atlanta!
