A WINNING TEAM
Our amazing team of employees and part-time volunteers are committed to helping our animals. We take our convictions and turn them into action. Think you would be a good fit? See our contact page for more information!
Seeing a need for proactive, nonprofit support for our community's animal population, members of our community joined to provide sensible solutions-and the DeKalb Animal Coalition was formed. The DeKalb Animal Coalition (501c3) operates a low-kill animal shelter that serves all of DeKalb County. We partner with rescues and work to educate the public about responsible pet ownership. We've grown considerably since our start, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!
As of early 2020, the Friends of the DeKalb Animal Shelter was formed to offset adoption costs, medical needs, and provide education and animal advocacy to our community. We are so excited to see this partnership grow!
ANIMALS ARE OUR MISSION
We focus on giving the maximum positive effort. Providing assistance for animals in need is our passion. Our members and volunteers provide the momentum that helps us do good work. Using community driven models, we take actions that make a long-lasting difference.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Each day is a step in the right direction. Every animal we rehome, rescue, spay, neuter, and provide assistance to is proof that the little things are worth it.
"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does"
