Mission Statement

It is the mission of Pets Are Loving Support, Inc. (PALS) to provide ongoing care and support to the pets of low-income Atlanta area persons living with disabilities, terminal illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, and the elderly. With this help, pets and owners may remain together to share the healing power of love and companionship which flows from the human-animal bond.

Description

Pets Are Loving Support (PALS), an Atlanta based 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1990 by two Atlanta businesswomen who met while doing volunteer work for the DeKalb Humane Society. Not only did they have a common interest in working with AIDS patients, but they were animal lovers. One day another volunteer mentioned that there was a person with AIDS who was living alone with his best friend, a cat. He was sharing his one meal per day with his cat and foregoing some of his medications in order to pay for vet care for his animal. When these two women heard of his plight, they immediately realized that the human-animal bond was extremely important to persons living with AIDS. So many lost the support and contact of family and friends, not to mention their financial independence, jobs, homes, and savings. This was an area in the life of persons living with AIDS that needed to be addressed. So, they began collecting pet food. From this humble beginning started PALS.

Since our beginning, PALS has provided free pet food and low-cost basic veterinary care including annual immunizations, vaccinations, flea control, and heartworm preventative to any low-income individual suffering from a terminal illness, is disabled, or the elderly over the age of 65.
