Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in Georgia. We operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the metro Atlanta area. Our efforts are funded by tax-deductible contributions from compassionate people and organizations who care and want to help make a difference... one pet at a time. Our mission is two-fold: 1) To educate the public on the plight of animals that have found themselves in high kill shelters throughout Georgia and on the responsibilities involved with pet ownership, such as spay/neuter and heartworm prevention. 2) To save as many animals as we can from high kill shelters and to see each animal through from the actual rescue to the loving foster home and ultimately to the "forever" home they were meant to have.

Results: Since our inception in 2009, Angels Among Us Pet Rescue has saved over 12,000 animals as a mostly volunteer-based organization. With no physical facilities to maintain, we operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes.

Target demographics: rescue, rehabilitate and find loving homes for homeless pets

Direct beneficiaries per year: save over 2,000 homeless pets

Geographic areas served: metro Atlanta, GA,

Programs: fostering, veterinary care, spay/neuter, and adoptions.

Angels led me to my sweet Max. He was thrown out of a moving car with his 2 siblings and Angels saved him. My life would not be the same without them or my little man!

I am a donor and volunteer for Angels Among Us and recently fostered a wonderful Cocker Spaniel named Becker a few months ago. Angels saved this little one and rehabilitated this loving dog that would have most certainly been euthanized without their help. This Rescue is devoted to saving as many animals in need as they possilbly can, and all walk the talk here working tirelessly to accomplish their mission. A charity very worthy of your donations and time.

March 20, 2016, I offered to foster a little dog that had been found in an apartment complex and that had been attacked by two larger dogs. His intestines were exposed and he was in horrific pain, with puncture wounds all over his tiny body, but he was still alive. Animal control had no means to help this little dog and called Angels Among Us Pet Rescue to help. Angels took him to an emergency veterinarian, where he had his spleen removed, lost part of his intestines and where it was learned that he lacerated a kidney. 8 days later, I brought him home with me to recover. He was frail, and barely eating, but once he realized that he was safe, and in a loving home, his recovery was swift and 31 days later, little Geoff was adopted by an amazing family with 3 children who love him dearly. I have fostered 17 dogs for Angels over almost 4 years and he was one of the sweetest, most loving creatures I've had the pleasure to help. What an incredible organization Angels is to be able to help a dog who had no chance without the support of donors and fosters. Wouldn't trade this job for anything!

I have had a wonderful experience with Angels Among Us Pet Rescue.

I have volunteered with Angels Among Us for a little over three years. Half of that time was fostering. I had to stop fostering when I "foster failed" aka adopted my foster and I am now at my limit on animals (3 cats)... For now that is.

I have been treated with kindness and respect. If I have a question, it is answered quickly and completely. It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful organization that cares so much about animals.

Angels Among Us is an amazing group. They operate solely on donations and exclusively use foster homes for their cats and dogs, yet they manage to rescue hundreds of animals a year. The volunteers are a great group of people brought together by their love of animals, and they always put the animals first. AAUS has kittens, puppies, cats and dogs available for adoption year round, cared for in loving foster homes until the perfect adopters are found. And AAUS will rescue animals other groups won't take because they're 'less adoptable', either due to age, handicap or medical condition. These animals have the same chance at a loving home as adorable puppies and kittens, thanks to AAUS. The adoption process is thorough but reasonable, and the foster parents participate so potential adopters can learn all about the animal before they adopt. I adopted two cats from AAUS over a year ago, and I'm so glad to have them as part of my family. I love this group so much, I volunteer with them now! Check out the photos of my current foster kitties, Katerina and Lexi. If you're interested in adopting a kitten, puppy, cat or dog, check out AAUS. You won't be disappointed.

Angels takes on animals other rescues turn away, scary medical cases from horrific abuse and animals with no hope. Help them with their mission of ending animal abuse, homelessness and the need for kill shelters in GA.

I started volunteering with AAU over a year ago and my experience has been wonderful! I have a huge spot in my heart for animals. We must be the voice for those who can not advocate for themselves. AAU does a great job of training their volunteers, publicizing their available pets, and most of all giving their dogs and cats the love, medical care, and training they need to be adopted. Rescue organizations need so many types of volunteers to be successful. AAU does a great job of trying to fit a team opening with a volunteer's schedule, so they can be successful in their position. Working with volunteer director Susan DuBois has been a great experience. I'm so glad I've been a (small) part of the organization that has saved 10,000+ dogs and cats lives throughout the state of Georgia.

I just wish there were six stars! This is a phenomenal foster-based animal rescue organization. While the numbers rescued are now in the thousands, it's really the quality of care (and true love & commitment) that separates this organization and its volunteers from the rest. AAUPR doesn't just skim the "easy to adopt" animals out of shelters. It takes more difficult cases, as well...animals that would certainly be "put down", due to age, abuse, injury, and uncontrolled illness. It's an equal opportunity saver! In fact, I became aware of AAUPR through a Facebook post, asking for contributions for a kitten named Devin. Devin had been tossed from a moving car and his back legs were paralyzed! Devin was saved and now, lives a full life with a tender-hearted Dad and a vet Mom! As the cat leader at AAUPR reminds us, "There is a lid for every pot!" Thus, there is a family for every pet!

The men and women who volunteer and foster are truly outstanding. Their love and commitment to the animals they rescue is unmatched. Their integrity (and thus that of the organization) is unparalleled. They are mindful stewards of the donations they receive.

I now foster while I "winter" near Atlanta each year. What an incredible experience that has been! I also contribute each month. I choose to give more to AAUPR than any other organization, other than my church. I absolutely know that AAUPR leaders are exceptional stewards of donations!!!

Fostering cats has truly changed my life for the better. Although disabled, I've found something to make a positive & meaningful difference in this world. I'm wrapping up my second "winter" and fostering my fourth kitty. I have four personals, as well! Although I've had cats my entire life, the other fosters have a wealth of practical experience and advice, and have taught me so much. That's the beauty of fostering for AAUPR. Although diverse, we simply share a passion and a commitment to these animals. I've gained several dozen new friends.

Let me personally thank you for your interest in our rescue. And I am grateful for whatever means of participation you may choose.

I started following Angels Among Us Pet Rescue on Facebook back in the Spring of 2014. During that Summer, the rescue group acquired an abused kitten named Devin. His story touched my heart so I decided to donate for his care. That is what started my unwavering support of this wonderful organization. I was so amazed by the love and care that AAUPR put into this sweet little kitty. Not long after they got Devin, a few other special needs kitties came into AAU's program. Devin's foster mom made a Facebook page just for Devin and all of his new friends. She was always so good at giving the followers daily updates on how they were all doing. When some of the new kittens were able to be put up for adoption, I applied for one of them (Kamilla). When I went to pick her up, I knew that I wanted a kitty friend for her. It was just a matter of picking one out. I ended up choosing one of Kamilla's housemates (Dot). Kamilla's foster mom is an amazing woman and AAUPR is very lucky to have her. She puts so much into the cats. She takes the hurt, abused, and special needs ones, and rehabilitates them so that they can have a good life. I will forever be grateful to her for my two sweeties. There are lots of good people within AAUPR. They all work tirelessly for the good of the fur-babies. I appreciate what they do for the animals, and I will continue to support their efforts.
