Partners for Pets provides support to Clayton County Animal Control (CCAC) by increasing the chances of adoption for dogs being held in the CCAC shelter. This is accomplished through on-site volunteer work, networking the dogs through social media to increase visibility, gathering donations and working directly with rescues. The donations we collect help defray costs for the many rescues we work with, and greatly increase the chances of a dog being pulled by a rescue.
To help reduce the numbers of dogs euthanized in Clayton County, we have created a non-profit corporation called “Partners for Pets, Inc.” We have filed for our 501(c)3 status and are waiting for our paperwork. Until we receive our final non-profit paperwork from the IRS, we are unable to provide tax-deductible receipts for your donations.
Partners for Pets is a volunteer effort, and is is in no way affiliated with CCAC, though we work as partners with animal control to help these homeless animals. Please understand that we have NO say or control with respect to the fate of each animal marked for euthanasia if it is not rescued or adopted. We are simply a group of volunteers who care deeply about the animals at this facility. Please remember to be polite in your correspondence and comments – our hearts feel as deeply as yours for these at-risk animals.

Who are Partners for Pets?
Our volunteer group serves as a liason between qualified rescues and Clayton County Animal Control in Jonesboro, GA, to encourage rescue / adoption of the animals here at CCAC. We photograph, post and network the dogs via social media, collect funds to vet, board, and transport dogs from Clayton Co., and work directly with rescues to help them pull dogs.
Current Dogs in Need
We have several volunteers that are responsible for taking and uploading the dogs’ pictures and ID info to the URGENT DOGS album on Facebook. There are only some days we are allowed to take pictures and there are too many dogs at the shelter and too little help to get them outside and take pretty pictures. Often a dog comes in on Saturday and is put down Tuesday AM, so ANY picture – even if not “pretty” – may help save a dog or puppy’s life. After euthanasia days (Tuesdays and Fridays), it takes about 24 hours before pictures are moved to the “Safe” or Rainbow Bridge albums. Not every dog has a picture as some may be unavailable due to aggression, legal issues or timing. Please email Partners for a dog’s available date before driving in to rescue or adopt.
Our NEED ADOPTION album has dogs that were pulled for rescue, but who are now are in long term foster or boarding situations and in need of loving, furever homes.
About our Volunteers
“It takes a Village to Save a Claytondoodle.” (We lovingly refer to the dogs here as such.)
Amy is an administrator and created the FB page. Maria, Jennifer, Bonnie, Allison, and Teresa, Chantal & Lauren are content creators / admins on our page. All our volunteers donate many hours each week in addition to their “real” jobs and personal family and pet responsibilities.
Partner with Partners!
How can you help? We’re glad you asked! While the most pressing need is always funds to help the rescues pull the animals, there are many other ways to help.
Donate to Help a Specific Dog
Visit our URGENT DOGS album on Facebook and contribute to dogs’ Fundrazr accounts. Every little bit helps and your donations make it much more affordable for a rescue to pull a dog.

Volunteer with Partners
We always have a need for volunteers! A critical, ongoing need is for transport out of the shelter. Transporting a Clayton County dog out of the shelter for rescue can make it much easier for rescues to work within the aggressive CCAC hold schedule – meaning more lives saved. Transport is often needed Monday through Saturday, and Tuesday and Friday afternoon transport can be a critical need. To learn more about transporting, and other volunteer opportunities with Partners for Pets, please e-mail us.
Donate to our General Fund
In addition to specific funds raised for individual dogs, Partners for Pets covers many interim expenses to help the dogs while awaiting rescue / adoption. Many dogs arrive at CCAC in need of immediate care, and when you Donate to our General Fund, you help us to cover expenses and help dogs in critical need. You can also donate directly via PayPal, by sending payment to: firstname.lastname@example.org (click on “Gift” and indicate donation purpose or ID number and name of dog if you have it, in the memo section). On behalf of the Clayton County shelter dogs – we thank you!
