We are a Green Business!

We are the greenest boarding facility in Georgia. You can even ask for a tour and our pack leaders will show you our state-of-the-art, energy  efficient facility.

  • 14 solar panels on our roof and all power that is produced is used daily.

  • Geothermal converter provides the power for heating and air conditioning the administration area.

  • 10 skylights that allow natural light to illuminate the facility during the day! Dogs love basking in the sun and the natural light.

  • A water collection system that uses the gutter system, a large storage underground container, a pump and faucet, allows collection of all rain water from the heavens; The water is stored underground and used to clean the outside play yards every day, water outside plants. Water is available for outside use even during droughts.


  • Energy-saving appliances are used at The Paw Pad! Our washer/dryer, refrigerators and dishwasher are energy savers.

  • All employees are encouraged to recycle using collection bins in our break room! One aluminum can will go from recycling back to the store shelves in just 60 days and saves enough energy to power a TV for 3 hours.

  • "Fresh-Aire" paint was used in the office area. This special paint has no VOCs thus improving air quality and avoiding dangerous vapors.

  • The Paw Pad strives to decrease our carbon "paw"print.
