PAWS Atlanta is a private, not-for-profit animal welfare organization. We provide love, nutrition, medical care and basic training to enrich the lives of homeless animals until permanent, safe homes can be found.
Our mission is to build a community of caring, by people helping pets and pets helping people.
If you are able to help with some of our daily needs to keep our animals as comfortable & healthy as possible while awaiting forever homes, we would greatly appreciate it.
The items below are ALWAYS needed at the Shelter, and may be dropped off at the front desk during our normal operating hours. Thank you!
◾Liquid laundry detergent is needed for the MANY loads of laundry we do every day.
◾Dawn Dish Soap for Dishwasher. We wash dishes all day long all over the shelter. Dawn is preferred since it's also safe for young puppies and kitten in need of a bath!
◾Regular Bleach (i.e. Clorox Clean-Up is not safe for animals). We use bleach to clean all parts of the shelter.
◾Paper Towels. We use these to clean all over the shelter all day long.
◾Trash Bags. 55 Gallon, 1.5 Mil (this thickness is durable enough for medium/heavy weight trash). We go through 100 bags each week.
◾Gift Cards to: Amazon, Office Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Sam’s Club, Publix, Walgreen’s, etc.
We shred newspaper to put in kennels. We use A LOT of newspapers and appreciate your donating newspapers to us.
Please note that due to sanitary and safety policies, we cannot accept the following items: choke collars, plastic bowls, retractable leashes, rawhide treats or toys, opened bags of pet food, sheets or pillow cases, electric blankets, dog tie-outs or tie-out stakes for yards.
