Southern Gentleman Shows Pet Love 2

Passion for Paws is a local Atlanta non-profit organization that partners with other animal rescues for fundraising, networking and rescue efforts. According to the American Humane Association, each year about 3.7 million animals are euthanized, thousands here in Georgia. While this problem is overwhelming, it can be solved if rescue groups have the volunteer and financial help to get these animals forever homes. Some of the biggest hurdles blocking rescue groups from getting animals forever homes is a lack of volunteers, publicity and money. Passion for Paws tries to fill that need.

Founded in 2008, Passion for Paws has raised more than $125,000 for local rescue groups through fun, casual and lively events at restaurants and hotels. Passion for Paws volunteers are also no strangers to running through the woods with other volunteers to catch that Mama Dog and her puppies or trap those baby kittens. They just want to help others to help animals. Passion for Paws does not take any money or commission.  Proceeds from fundraisers go directly to Georgia rescues such as Releash, PAWS Atlanta, Good Mews, Urban Pet Project, Barking Hound Foundation, Angels Among Us, and Two Tailz Rescue.
