Families belong together

who are we?

Atlanta has one of the highest eviction rates in the United States. Evictions affect not only humans — they also lead to the surrender of hundreds of family pets to area animal shelters each year. And while housing instability is often a temporary circumstance for the humans it affects, the surrender of a family pet to a shelter is permanent. Paws Between Homes believes that, when people get back on their feet in new housing, they should be able to do so as a complete family with no member left behind.  That’s why we provide temporary foster homes, supplies, and veterinary care to the pets of people who are getting evicted or otherwise losing their housing. We serve low-income households in the following zip codes:  30310, 30311, 30312, 30314, 30315, 30318, and 30331.
