PAWS Atlanta is a private, not-for-profit animal welfare organization founded in 1966, originally as the DeKalb Humane Society. We provide love, nutrition, medical care & 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.

Organization Wish List

Critical Needs List


Other Needs:

Cleaning Supplies
•Liquid laundry detergent is needed for the MANY loads of laundry we do every day. Unscented detergents that get odor and germs out are the best.
•Dawn Dish Soap for Dishwasher. We wash dishes all day long at the shelter. Dawn is preferred since it’s also safe for young puppies and kitten in need of a bath!
•Regular Unscented 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 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 (in any amount of your choosing)
•Gift Cards to: Amazon, Office Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Sam’s Club, Publix, Walgreen’s, etc.
•Amazon gift cards help us pay for some of the larger, more expensive items on our wish list
•Gas cards help us pay for gas used while transporting animals, traveling to adoption events or picking up pet supplies.
•Grocery store gift cards (Sam’s Club, Kroger, Publix, Costco) help us purchase day-to-day items for the shelter (i.e. paper towels, bleach).
