Rescue animals live in the present, the here and now, and we love that about them. That’s why we focus on their future… Finding a forever home.
Our shelter pets come to us from all walks of life. Some are beloved family pets surrendered when their humans run out of options. Some are rescued from overcrowded shelters where their future is uncertain. Some are pets who who have been left to fend for themselves. So far this year, 144 dogs and cats have been abandoned at PAWS Atlanta’s front gate. This is not unique to us; it's a trend shelters are experiencing across the country.
Fortunately, your generosity and commitment to helping abandoned animals gives them a second chance to live their best lives. Your kindness makes this possible. You've volunteered your time. You've donated generously. You've advocated for hundreds of animals who needed a voice. Because of you, 631 pets have found their forever homes so far in 2021. You kept the doors open for animals who have nowhere else to turn.
This GAgives on #GivingTuesday, will you stand with rescue pets again? With help from heroes like you, these beautiful animals will find their way home.
With a fundraising goal of $45,000, we hope to finish up another tough year on a hopeful note! With each financial donation, you are providing second chances for dogs and cats with nowhere else to turn. Thank you for joining us this Georgia Gives Day and being a voice for pets all over the state that have found themselves without families, but never without support.
