All profits Support Praying for Paws Efforts

The Paw Pad’s owner, Carol Kelly, founded the 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue Praying for Paws in 2005, to save homeless dogs from being euthanized at pet shelters. Her passion and effort have placed more than a thousand local dogs in their forever homes.

Carol discovered a need for a high-quality lodging option for local pet owners, so she opened The Paw Pad as a way to support her rescue efforts. All profits made at The Paw Pad go directly toward saving the lives of homeless dogs in Henry County!

We’ve teamed up with other Georgia animal rescue organizations to spread information, work with the community and extend our reach to animals in need across the state. Some of our efforts include low-cost spay clinics and canine foster programs.


We take in homeless dogs and provide them with a vet visit, updated vaccines and microchips to get them ready for adoption. Our staff trainer even helps shape our rescues into the perfect pets. Many of our dogs are owner surrenders, but we also work with local animal control and shelters.

Loving Home

Some Praying for Paws rescues stay at The Paw Pad until being placed in a loving home. Next time you stop by, say hi to the animals whose lives you’re saving by using our pet care services in McDonough, GA!
