Wall of Friends

show your love to family and friends with this wonderful tribute

You can show a special friend or family member how much you love them by placing a plaque on the "Wall of Friends" at the Rabun Paws 4 Life Shelter and Adoption Center. 

Click here for the application!  $100.00 per plaque.


Our foster program is a rewarding experience for the foster families and the animals!  Many animals (dogs and cats) are in need of special socialization that can happen only in a family environment.  Some animals have special medical needs and a home environment will help them heal more quickly or be more comfortable during recovery and treatment.  Some animals have terminal conditions and hospice care in a loving home environment will allow their last days surrounded by love is what they need.


In all of these cases, you may be the person or family that can provide the love they need!

Please contact our shelter team today to sign up and find out more information about becoming a foster family!
