Animal Intake

We provide animal intake for strays and owner surrender. Contact us for details.

Foster Homes

We are always looking for volunteers to take certain animals into their homes for a short period of time for different reasons.


Athens Animal Rescue Shelter is a non-profit that depends on the generous support from you and our community. We have many ways you can help!

Your gift, your way!

Your support is critical to the care we provide our animals, and we couldn't do it without you! Your generous donations help to provide:

  • Medical supplies and services in our Vet Tech room
  • Shelter, food and care for every pet we serve
  • Ongoing building renovations for the shelter
  • Proud Paws Express Transports so more dogs can find forever homes

There are multiple ways to help the Shelter!
