Uniting People with Pets for a Lifetime of Happiness

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 loving animals waiting to meet their new family today!

We started 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 December 1, 2018, we have Adopted or Transferred for Adoption over 4000 Rabun County animals since our doors opened on November 14, 2012.

Rabun Paws 4 Life Animal Control and Shelter has maintained a 98% live release rate by Asilomar Ratings!
