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.

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. They also help us offer reduced adoption fees during Empty the Shelters events throughout the year.

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.

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 as we continue to deal with 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. Most recently, we received a Capital Improvement Grant to repair and resurface our floors in the large dog area. Thanks to their amazing generosity, our pups have the adequate space they need to be happy and healthy during their time in our care.

Petco Love

Petco Love’s mission is β€œto create a better world for animals and the people who love and need them. And it all begins with love.” We are thrilled and humbled to be a Petco Love Stories winner in 2022, earning $50,000 grant to give more animals a place to call home . Our winning entry showcased the beautiful story of Jess and Lena. One of the most rewarding things about rescue is seeing the dogs and cats that you've helped inspire others to be the best version of themselves. And there is no better example than Jess and her PAWS Atlanta alum, Lena. Read their story here.

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.
