I have been volunteering at Athens Animal Rescue Shelter for a few months. I am so impressed with the level of care and attention each animal receives. You can tell how passionate the staff is about finding the animals great homes!!

Athens Animal Rescue is the perfect example of a true caring animal rescue organization. The team cares deeply for the animals, making great efforts to get all to a loving home. They think outside the box to create safe avenues for placing cats and dogs, driving near and far to partner with other respected rescue organizations. The team has taken this organization a long way since taking over in April and created a great rescue.

This shelter has such a great, dedicated staff working hard to give help to many abandoned and abused animals. They have taken many cats and dogs to other areas of the country thru transports and rescues giving these animals a chance at a forever home. They make sure their cats and dogs have a safe home and don't go hungry. Their jobs aren't easy but they go above and beyond.

Athens Animal Rescue Shelter has done an amazing job of working with rescue groups and driving animals all over the country to get adopted. An amazing team that our small community can be proud of.

This shelter is small and mighty! They go above and beyond to save animal lives!! They partner with rescues and multiple organizations to find their furr-babies a home - even if they have to drive across the country. They really are the epitome of a shelter with a heart!

Adopted our Ellie back in May, I asked to go see her and they immediately set up an appointment for a meet n greet. I was able to adopt her and take her home that day. Very helpful and informative and friendly staff. Ellie is a great addition to our family

What a nice place. Animals are really cared for and treated well. Everytime I have visited it has been very clean and the atmosphere is happy and friendly. The people who work there seem to truly care about getting them a good home. I got Bella there!

Awesome service and care for the Animals! They have done so much to turn this Shelter around where you can see the difference not only in the surroundings but in the loving environment for all the animals. Their goal is to find a loving home for each of the animals.

I have never seen or heard of a shelter be so active in placing animals in homes not just locally but across the country!!

Also amazes me how much the individuals who run the shelter give of their own time outside of a normal work day.

I have recently started to work with Athens Animal Rescue and I have to say rescue is the operative word! These folks go to great lengths to find homes for these deserving animals! I look forward to continuing my small part in their cause. If you are looking for a new addition to your family, please adopt, don't shop.
