APRA (Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption) has joined Best Friends Animal Society as Best Friends-Atlanta. The center will serve as a lifesaving hub for animals and also a base from which we can fill in gaps in local programming and build a coalition to help the metro-Atlanta area in its final push to no-kill. Best Friends already has centers in Los Angeles, New York and Utah. Now, with the joining of APRA, Best Friends-Atlanta can help strengthen the no-kill movement in the southeast as well. Together with quality animal welfare organizations throughout the country, we will bring no-kill to animals all across the nation. Together, we will Save Them All.

Thank you for giving us a warm welcome to Atlanta!
