Fix Georgia Pets is a recently established nonprofit led by animal welfare advocates Ginny Millner, Dale Wintlend and Rubye Reid. Ginny, Dale and Rubye believed something needed to be done about the estimated 300,000 pets being put to death every year in Georgia at a cost of nearly $100 million to taxpayers. Fix Georgia Pets has made its mission to prevent pet overpopulation and the unnecessary euthanizing of dogs and cats due to this crisis.

The nonprofit funds low-cost spay and neuters and has made a goal of providing at least 5,000 cats and dogs with spay and neuter procedures within one year. With fundraisers like Party for Paws, Fix Georgia Pets is able to provide organizations such as  The Humane Society of Atlanta, Lifeline, FurKids, SPOT, Homeless Pets, Value Vet, Village Vets, Planned Pethood, GSPCA and AHS with funds to spay and neuter their cats and dogs.
