Helping Those Who Cannot Help Themselves at the Atlanta Pet Rescue

Rachel Pomberg, Director of Communications and Development for Atlanta Pet Rescue, sat down with us to share a little bit about the facility and the work it strives to do right here in the Atlanta area.
"Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption (APRA) is a non-profit, no-kill shelter dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs and cats so they can be adopted into safe and loving forever homes," she begins. She tells us that more than ninety thousand companion pets are euthanized every year- just in the animal control facilities here, in the Metro Atlanta area. As if that wasn't a scary enough number, approximately four million are euthanized nationwide! "APRA was established in 2000 and since then we have rescued over nineteen thousand animals and continue to rescue and adopt out over nine hundred a year," she states. Pomberg tells us that the Atlanta Pet Rescue operates seven days a week, all year long. Quite impressive, by any standard. Obviously, this creates a dire need for volunteers, and they're always looking for more! "Our volunteers help us in so many ways," she boasts. "From answering the phones and greeting potential adopters, to assisting us with rehabilitating our pets by providing socialization and training, to supporting our adoption program by facilitating off-site adoption events- the list goes on!" We can tell just from talking with Pomberg exactly how much the volunteers mean to the facility, as she continues to explain how much they rely on those who lend a hand. "We are so grateful for the support we receive from our volunteers and new members are always welcome," she tells us. "By law in the state of Georgia, any stray or abandoned animal must be remanded to the animal control facility of the county in which it is found," Pomberg affirms.

I spoke with Rachel Pomberg this afternoon about some pirates coming to help promo the exhibit.
They would love that and are open to the idea. However, before we can show and say "We're here! ... they do need to know a ball park number of who may come (eventually), what crews/groups/individuals plan to do while there (like presentations, demos, etc) to see if it's ok to do such at the museum, and if ye would volunteer for no coinage or if ye have other demands or compensation.
