Immediate Help Wanted: Foster Care Providers for Pets In Need

Ahimsa House needs your help more than ever to continue meeting the current demand for our services. Take in the pets of domestic violence survivors until they get "back on their feet" in a safe, non-abusive environment.
There are no out-of-pocket costs to providing foster care. We provide food, transportation, and veterinary care. We need foster homes for dogs, cats, and lots of other species! ANY amount of time you can contribute makes a huge difference. Temporary fosters also allow us to get pets out of expensive boarding facilities as quickly as possible until a more cost-effective option can be secured.

Want to foster, but think you spend too much time away each day? Let’s talk! We are happy to explore covering the cost of daycare or a dogwalker for your foster pet, as these services are less expensive than paying for full-time boarding.

You may be asked to give a few days or weeks of your time ... to the pet who benefits, it means a lifetime.

About Ahimsa House, Inc.


PO Box 2173, Tucker, GA 30085, US

Mission Statement

Ahimsa House is dedicated to addressing the link between domestic violence and animal cruelty. We offer services and assistance to victims of domestic violence with pets in Georgia and work to raise awareness of this connection in communities throughout the state. To date (June 2023), Ahimsa House has provided over 170,000 nights of safe, confidential shelter for pets in need. With over 3,000 pets and around 1,900 pet owners assisted, Ahimsa House continues to grow in the number of families we've helped reach safety.


Ahimsa (uh-him-sa) House is Georgia's first and only nonprofit organization that supports survivors of domestic violence with their pets as they seek safety. Since our inception in 2004, we have served more than 100 counties in Georgia and work in conjunction with domestic violence shelters statewide to handle the care and treatment of survivor's pets. Our services include up to sixty (60) days of temporary shelter for pets, routine or emergency veterinary care, pet transportation assistance, 24/7 crisis line support, assistance in obtaining pet friendly housing, and more! Once survivors are ready and able, they are reunited with their pet in confidentiality.

With less than only ten full time staff members, Ahimsa House depends heavily on the help of members in our communties to succeed in our mission. Volunteers are essential and work incredibly hard to assist survivors on the crisis line, transport pets between facilities, foster pets temporarily (with supplies and veterinary care provided by us!), and share our services to the public at community events. Additionally, we rely on the amazing partnerships we've made with animal hospitals, rescues, and boarding facilities throughout the state!

Ahimsa House relies heavily on individual donations, grants, and corporate sponsorships alongside receiving many in-kind donations of goods and services.
