Our Mission

Athenspets, Inc. is an all-volunteer Georgia nonprofit, tax exempt corporation dedicated to finding permanent homes or rescues for all the animals at Athens-Clarke County Animal Control. Athenspets started in 2001 by one intrepid volunteer named Allyson who created a webpage to advertise the dogs currently at the pound. (At the time, our Humane Society handled the cats.) Over the years more volunteers joined, the website became more sophisticated and we provided more help for the dogs and cats through sponsorships and the Athenspets Medical Fund. We are proud that this website has greatly increased the number of rescues and adoptions at Athens Animal Control year after year.
