Athenspets is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping the neediest animals in the Athens (GA) area and the people who love them!

 

 

Athenspets is a hope and a prayer: that a group of dedicated volunteers, some in person, some virtual, can work to make life a little better for the neediest animals in the Athens, Georgia area and the people who love them. We spend time with the animals impounded at Athens-Clarke County Animal Services, providing exercise and socialization for them while learning about them in order to advertise them on social media and help match them with prospective adopters. We also raise funds and collect supplies to help with the extraordinary medical expenses of the shelter animals, make the lives of the shelter animals better, and help pets stay in good, if socially vulnerable, homes, through our Community Spay/Neuter Program and innovative Community Interventions Program.

We do our best to accurately portray each animal in our postings and conversations, but we are not professionals. Please come by to meet the animals for yourself prior to adoption and bring any family members (children, other pets, etc.) with whom it is necessary for the new pet to get along so you can judge for yourself whether the particular dog or cat is a good fit for your home.

How you can help

Regardless of how much time or money you have, you can help save lives!

Shelter Hours

Athens-Clarke County Animal Services is open to the public 11am-4pm every day except county holidays. In addition, Sundays only from July 4, 2021 – August 1, 2021, the shelter will be closed to the public.

You do not need an appointment to bring in a stray animal or to look to see if your lost pet is present, but calling ahead is helpful. To schedule a time to do a walk through and be matched with a new pet or to surrender your own animal, please call 706-613-3540.
