Atlanta Humane is proud to partner with community organizations to keep pets in their homes and out of shelters. One of those organizations is Paws Between Homes, an Atlanta-based nonprofit committed to providing a safety net foster program to pets during periods of housing loss or instability for their families.
Cole Thaler, co-founder and board president, recently shared Trixie’s story with us. After finding themselves facing eviction and rapidly increasing housing costs, Trixie’s family reached out to Paws Between Homes for help. They were able to place Trixie into a temporary foster home and are now working with our veterinary clinic, Remedy, to get Trixie the care she needs to overcome heartworm disease.
Trixie will hopefully be reunited with her family soon thanks to the support of Paws Between Homes. Atlanta Humane believes the relationship between humans and animals has deep significance and will continue to work with our neighbors to keep families together.
