MISSION The mission of Rabun Paws 4 Life is to make a positive difference in Rabun County by providing a no-kill animal control and shelter to care for and protect animals from abuse neglect and abandonment.  We are committed to maintaining the highest standards possible for the humane and compassionate treatment of all animals.

Vision Our vision is a forever home for every cat and dog in our care.

Values Every animal has intrinsic value and the right to be treated humanely.  We seek to advance the welfare of companion animals through meaningful outreach and education programs.  We strive to end pet overpopulation through an affordable spay/neuter program.  Accurate recording of finances will be available to the public at all times, with transparency the goal of all our activities.

Shelter Staff

Our shelter is home to more than meets the eye. Our Shelter and Adoption Center houses dogs and cats. We are also home to the Rabun County Animal Control located in our shelter! There are a whole bunch of loving animals waiting to meet you and their family today!


 We were lucky to start our shelter back in 2012 and we've been able to successfully keep our doors open with support from our community. It's taken a lot of love, hard work and dedication, but the animals make every day a joy for us!


As of January 10, 2015, we have Adopted or Transferred for Adoption over 1600 Rabun County animals since our doors opened on November 14, 2012.


Rabun Paws 4 Life Animal Control and Shelter has maintained a 99% live release rate by Asilomar Ratings!
