Amal Animal Rescue Foundation

The Amal Animal Rescue Foundation is a no-kill animal shelter started in 2011. It is run by Shirley Badawi and Lori Hill, with the help of faithful volunteers and wonderful people like you. We provide a home to cats and small dogs in Floyd County, GA and hold adoption events in Atlanta. Floyd County has a has one of the highest kill rates in their shelters of all the counties in Georgia. We believe that no animal should be killed simply because they were left behind or unwanted. Instead, all of the animals we adopt out have either been fixed or the owner has signed a contract agreeing to spay/neuter their new family member when they are old enough. All of our adoptable animals have up-to-date vaccinations and have been micro-chipped to ensure that they can always be returned to their owners. To ensure that one of our own never ends up in a kill shelter again, we even take back animals whose owners can’t take care of them anymore, although we stress that adopting a pet is a permanent decision. How we do this on a threadbare budget? Well, we work a little magic to make things come together, and we are extremely thankful for any help and donations that come our way.


We are dedicated to giving these fur-kids a "chance" to fulfill their destiny; a home of their own or to live out their lives in a safe haven to be warm, fed, and loved.
