Our mission is to save senior pets facing euthanasia in shelters and place them in loving homes.

The Silver Paws Program is a community outreach program of Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends, Inc. (AARF). AARF recognizes the physical and social benefits of pets for mature adults. We also recognize the reality of the dire outcomes for many senior pets who are abandoned at county animal control facilities. We hope mature adults in the Atlanta will find the a canine or feline companion through our program.

Silver Paws is supported by donations and fundraising events. We welcome private donations from petlovers of all ages to support the continued development of our outreach through this program.

Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends, Inc. is an IRS-designated 501(c)3 organization. All donations to AARF are fully tax-deductible. AARF is also licensed as an animal rescue organization by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
