Chat with folks about Ahimsa House!

Ahimsa House is Georgia's only organization focusing on the links between animal abuse and domestic violence. We help people and their pets across Georgia escape domestic violence through providing temporary emergency shelter and veterinary care for pets while their owners stay at domestic violence shelters, where pets are usually not allowed.

Because we serve the whole state of Georgia, outreach is a very important component of our work--so that we make sure everyone who may need our help knows about our organization. We are looking for dynamic, outgoing volunteers to help us staff our information booth at community festivals and pet festivals around the state. You can volunteer as frequently or infrequently as you wish. We need the most help during the spring and fall when festival season is in full swing.

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.
