Mission Statement

It is the mission of Pets Are Loving Support, Inc. to provide ongoing care and support to the pets of Atlanta area persons living with disabilities due to HIV/AIDS, terminal illnesses, 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 (P.A.L.S.), an Atlanta based 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1990 by two Atlanta business-women who met while doing volunteer work for Project Open Hand. Not only did they have a common interest in working with AIDS Patients, but also 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 lose 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 P.A.L.S.

Since it's beginning, P.A.L.S. provides basic veterinary care including: annual immunizations, vaccinations, flea control, spaying and neutering services, providing free transportation to and from vet clinics, providing contacts for free foster care and adoption programs when necessary to any low-income individual suffering from a terminal illness or the elderly over the age of 65.
