For over 57 years, PAWS Atlanta has been working tirelessly to care for animals in need and place them into loving families. Since opening in 1966, PAWS has rescued over 50,000 homeless animals and introduced tens of thousands of people to the joy of having a pet. Programs include pet adoption and foster services, bi-monthly vaccine clinics for the public, a pet food bank for loving owners going through hard times, senior support, and pet matching assistance.
PAWS Atlanta is proud to receive funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization to provide medical and preventative care for senior dogs like eight-year-old 8-Track who received treatment for arthritis and a lingering cough. Unaddressed medical needs can be a major barrier to adoption. This grant will ensure the PAWS Atlanta veterinary team can provide the care senior dogs need to be healthy and find loving homes.
