About Us

PUP AND CAT Co.’s Mission Statement: Protecting Unwanted Pets (PUP) AND Creating Adoptions Together (CAT).
Pup & Cat Co. is a no-kill humane society, which means we do not euthanize animals for lack of space or for financial reasons, so we ensure that every adoptable animal finds a permanent home. We are a 501(c)3 organization and 100% of our income comes from donations and adoption fees. All donations are tax-deductible. We do NOT have a shelter facility or employees and ALL work is done by a limited group of volunteers.
We rescue animals from a variety of sources, including shelters, people who give up their pets, or off the streets where they have been abandoned. Until they are adopted, they are nurtured and socialized in Pup & Cat Co.’s limited network of foster homes, preparing them to easily adapt to life as part of a family. Since foster homes are limited, some pets are boarded and cared for at local vet clinics and boarding/daycare facilities.
To help these pets find permanent homes, Pup & Cat Co. holds adoptions each Saturday at Petsmart at Mall of Georgia at 1705 Mall of Georgia Blvd, Buford GA 30519.
Our group was founded over 30 years ago by Ursula Miller.  At that time we were known as the Barrow County Humane Society and in 1999 changed our name to Pup & Cat Co. Ursula and her volunteers have rescued, cared for and placed over 5 thousand unwanted, sick and mistreated dogs and cats. When asked why she does this task her only answer is out of love and respect for the animals.  One of the missions of the group is to educate the public about the large population of unwanted pets and the importance of spaying and neutering.
