Pickens Animal Rescue Information

Pickens Animal Rescue, Inc. was founded in 1997, PAR continues to offer an alternative for our citizens in finding homes for unwanted dogs and cats in our community. Being a 501c3 non-profit GA corporation, we survive from personal donations as well as grants awarded each year. PAR is not affiliated with any government entity but are governed by a Board of Directors.

The outstanding volunteers of Pickens Animal Rescue work together through fund raising events, fostering pets, working at pet adoptions, picking up donations, and working at our Rescued Furniture Thrift Store. It requires a lot of hours to maintain the care and funding needed to house approximately 30 dogs and 30 cats on any given day throughout the year.

Our dogs and cats are kept until a permanent home can be found and we don’t euthanize just to make room or because the animal has been with us for any certain period of time. We are very proud of our adoption statistics and the many families we have worked with in selecting their new family pet.
