Spring and summer months are our busiest seasons in animal welfare, particularly because it's kitten season! Due to unwanted litters, we see an influx of kittens and cats in our Atlanta county shelters. Here are 5 ways you can help!


Summers in Atlanta are perfect for hiking the North Georgia Mountains or going on a stroll through Sweetwater Creek State Park! But there's nothing better than hiking on a gorgeous day with your new best friend! We've put together our favorite hiking ready pups - even if your idea of hiking is just a bar crawl through Atlanta - these guys would love to tag along!


When Kash came into our care, he was terrified. He would huddle in the back of his kennel, refusing to make eye contact with anyone who would pass. He would hide behind the other dogs, hoping no one would notice him. We didn't know exactly what happened in his past, be we did know it wasn't good.

Elle and Chester

We have many different volunteer opportunities, from bottle-feeding kittens to washing dogs. However, our most popular program has been our Dog for the Day program! With our Dog for the Day program, volunteers can "check-out" a dog for the day and take them all over Atlanta! It's a great opportunity for our pups to gain exposure, while getting a quick reprieve from the shelter. And it's a fun day for our volunteers to socialize while giving back to Atlanta's homeless animals. Though we have many amazing volunteers, one volunteer has become our Dog for the Day guru and that's Elle Prescott! Elle takes her shelter favorite all over the city - from the Atlanta BeltLine to Bruster's to Glenwood Park. And because Elle has mastered the art of taking a "Dog for the Day", we thought we'd let her tell you all about her current shelter favorite.
