PAWS Atlanta’s work and mission is about building a community of caring. Since opening in 1966, PAWS has rescued almost 49,000 homeless animals and introduced tens of thousands of people to the joy of having a pet—knowing they can enrich the lives of their pet and, in turn, knowing how their pet can greatly enrich their life. Programs include pet adoption and foster services, bimonthly 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 in need. 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.
