Matching Gift Challenge

As we celebrate 50 years as a no-kill animal shelter, a donor has generously committed to match every dollar you give through August 1st, up to $50,000!

$50,000 for 50 years of saving lives! Can we do it? Will you help us?

That means your gift of $50 will be doubled to become $100! And your gift of $100 becomes $200…all for homeless animals! If you donate today, to honor 50 years of no-kill, your dollars will go twice as far to care for twice as many pets in need.

You’ve helped us save precious lives for 50 years. Can 2016…the year of our 50th Anniversary…be PAWS Atlanta’s most life-saving year yet?

401Kitten and 401K9

You’ve probably heard of a 401K, or have even invested in one. But what about a 401Kitten (or K9, if you’re more of a dog person)? If you want to be financially responsible AND help adorable pets—even if you cant adopt—these are the investments for you. They’re only available through PAWS Atlanta & they’re the only funds that yield a 100% return on happiness for you—and life-saving dividends for Atlanta's pets

Ready to enroll? We promise, it’s way easier than setting up a traditional 401K:

4) View the latest Petformance Trends to see how the funds are doing
3) Allocate your monthly investment

Little PAWS Fund

In late spring and early summer, we are overwhelmed by litters of unwanted puppies and kittens. These abandoned babies place a tremendous strain on our already stretched resources. Their veterinary care is very costly with multiple rounds of booster shots, milk replacement formula, special food, antibiotics and spaying/neutering.

We can't help them without your help. Give to the Little PAWS Fund today and make a huge difference in the lives of these little paws.

Low-Cost Spay and Neuter Services

Spaying or neutering your pet controls overpopulation and prevents medical and behavioral problems. Low-cost spay/neuter services are now offered on the weekends at PAWS Atlanta to offer more convenience to the public. Call to make your appointment today.
