Our Pal's Place is a non-profit Pet Adoption Facility and Education Center. Our mission is to rescue dogs from euthanasia at local animal control shelters and find loving, permanent homes for them.
Our Pal's Place is an incorporated, not-for-profit Pet Adoption Facility and Education Center located in Marietta, GA. Our mission is to rescue dogs from euthanasia at local animal control shelters. When entering the shelter, we first meet the dogs who have a death date. If we believe we can find the dog a good home, we pull the dog from the shelter into our organization. We provide our dogs food, housing, love, attention and any necessary rehabilitation. Our dogs receive full veterinarian care and are spay/neutered. Meanwhile, we work to find these orphaned dogs a loving, permanent home. Potential adopters must complete an adoption application, meet with a Director of our organization and agree to a scheduled home visit.
We also work directly with individuals who have specific qualifications they are seeking in an animal companion. As we go into local animal control shelters, we look for a dog who has these characteristics and we also contact other rescue groups.
Our Pal's Place has a professional trainer - Susan Brumbelow, K9U Training - on staff who is experienced in enhancing the human/animal relationship through training and behavioural counseling. Training is just as much about teaching the human as it is training the pet! Susan offers sessions including Puppy Socialization classes, Good Manners classes and Canine Good Citizen classes .
Through our community outreach program, Our Pal's Place offers educational services to the Brownies, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to help youth earn pet related badges. We also offer youth education programs such as Kindness to Animals, Basic Pet Care & Spay/Neuter and Pets are for Life programs. Finally, we will have a Youth Council program offered to high school students to provide hands-on learning experience in Animal Welfare Education, Non-Profit Business Management, Fundraising, etc. Directors from Our Pal's Place are available to speak at school, club, church, etc. functions.
