We continue to be the game-changers who are leading the fight to protect animals and end animal cruelty.

For over 30 years, TAPS has pioneered the way we fight animal cruelty, work in our communities and with the next generation through our educational and awareness programs. Through our Animal Law Source™ program we continue to be “the statewide resource” for all Georgia prosecutors, law enforcement, animal control officers, judges, veterinarians, animal shelter staff and the public.  Every day, we assist in animal related cases including boots on the ground in puppy mills cases and offer resources through our website, webinars, trainings, and our annual Animal Protection And Wellness Expo. We teach "the link” between animal abuse and human crimes (child abuse, domestic abuse and elder abuse), draft laws to protect animals, educate those whose job it is to protect animals and unite all facets of animal advocacy to work together to stop animal abuse.
