Angels Among Us Pet Rescue

One of the many shelters that The Book of Barkley has donated to several times is Angels Among Us Pet Rescue in the Atlanta area.

About them:
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in north Georgia. They operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the metro Atlanta area. Their efforts are funded by tax-deductible contributions from compassionate people and organizations who care and want to help make a difference… one pet at a time. Their mission is two-fold:

 1) To educate the public on the plight of animals that have found themselves in high kill shelters throughout Georgia and on the responsibilities involved with pet ownership, such as spay/neuter and heartworm prevention.

2) To save as many animals as they can from high kill shelters and to see each animal through from the actual rescue to the loving foster home and ultimately to the “forever” home they were meant to have.

About AAUPR:
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, Inc

Legal Address:
PO Box 821, Alpharetta, GA 30009
Federal Tax ID: 27-1228232
Type of Organization: 501(c)(3) non-profit charity

Right now they've had a number of pregnant dogs come in that have had to give birth at the shelter, scary for both dog and all involved.  They are working around the clock to provide adequate medical care and nourishment for these new pups.   Having been part of their efforts through donations I can say they are the best people, hard working and kind, doing a lot when there is often just "not enoughs". Not enough money, not enough space, not enough hands to transport and foster.
So if you have any spare change you would like to donate to a good cause consider them.  Even a few dollars will help with medical care and food.  They also have an "Amazon wish list" button on their home page with supplies that are much needed to care for these animals.


  1. Sounds like a great rescue group. I do like it when a group has the Amazon wish list set up - it seems like a great way to get the items a group needs, particularly for people who may happen to have an unused gift card and want to use it to do some good, rather than just buy something else for themselves.

  2. What wonderful work they are doing! If only there was not such a great need!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
