Paws & Claws will be catalysts in educating the younger generation in responsible pet ownership and creating an awareness of the proliferation of unwanted pets. Under the guidance of EVHS and a club sponsor (teacher), the clubs will introduce their members to animals currently residing at our local Shelter. The members will “sponsor” animals from EVHS and use their own contacts to help find “forever” homes for these “Homeless Pets”.

By taking an active role in the adoption process, the kids will gain pride, self-esteem and feel a sense of accomplishment as well as enhancing such important traits as communication and social interaction. After all,
kids are our future pet owners and, hopefully, will pass along their knowledge to subsequent generations. In addition, the parents are sure to become involved as a by-product of this association.

But it will take a collaborative effort on the part of EVHS, the schools, and the community at large to fulfill our dream and the hope of animal lovers everywhere to eventually make our Community, the great State of Georgia, and the ENTIRE nation “no-kill”!

Paws & Claws Clubs aren’t just limited to grade schools. Any business, Church, civic, or social organization may get involved. For more details on how to get your club started, contact us at: (770) 383-3338. Great things are happening at EVHS…come be a part! 

Memorial Brick

Would you like to memorialize a friend, loved one, or pet forever? Or
simply show your support for EVHS? Our memorial bricks are the perfect way
to ensure your message is permanent. The bricks are laid under the
“Pawvillion” in our onsite dogpark. This is a unique gift to anyone, but
especially for our animals! All proceeds from the $50 cost will be used to
care for the animals of EVHS until they find their permanent homes. We
appreciate your support!
