It is the mission of Pets Are Loving Support, Inc. (PALS) – an Atlanta based 501(c)(3) organization – to provide ongoing care and support to the pets of Atlanta area persons living with disabilities due to HIV/AIDS and terminal illnesses, and the elderly. With this help, pets and owners may remain together to share the healing power of love and companionship which flows from the human-animal bond.

Meet the reigning PALS Spokespet, Paxton Amos Franklin!

Hi, I’m Paxton! My human is Kenny Franklin. I am excited to welcome you to the PALS website and want to thank you for supporting their mission. Help a friend keep a friend! If your pet would like to be the next PALS Spokespet, please look for information about the Spring 2022 Pet Cotillion online photo contest, which should be listed on the Events tab above some time in March. Woof woof!
