Who We Are
The Briarcliff Animal Foundation
(BAF) is a volunteer based, non-profit
organization formed exclusively to promote and provide funding for
The idea for BAF evolved as an outgrowth of Briarcliff Animal
Clinic. The clinic
had long been providing financial
aid to sick and injured stray animals.
As the years went by and we became more involved in the community, we realized that there was a substantial need to help these
animals on a much
2005, the Briarcliff Animal
Foundation was formed. It was a groundbreaking
for the foundation and its President, Dr.
III. He personally
delivered over $30,000 in veterinary medical relief supplies to Hattiesburg,
after Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Muller (a private pilot) airlifted medical
supplies to veterinarians who were displaced as a result of the
These supplies helped save the lives of many animals, including dogs
which were sick and had been relocated from the coast.
Additionally, Dr. Muller airlifted stranded
dogs back to Atlanta,
who were treated and made available for adoption.
In total, eight trips were made in relation
to the hurricane relief efforts and were acknowledged in the May 2006
Atlanta Magazine (“45 Atlantans We Love”).
BAF received 501(c)3 status in 2006. The
foundation vaccinated and placed around 100 pets to local families and
$45,000 on stray pets, as well as on those pets belonging to clients without the
ability to care for their pet in crisis. Our foundation's
approach is unique in that we
offer medical treatment to injured and sick stray animals along with
care. Our “Purrfect Pet” adoption program
provides necessary veterinary care
for adoptable cats that might otherwise be euthanized. Now, in an
broaden support in the Atlanta community, BAF provides funding to
following animal related programs around Atlanta: The Atlanta Dog Park- an off-leash park in Piedmont
Park where dogs
can run and play; University
Support- a program which provides
loving support to pets of Atlanta area persons living
with critical illnesses and disabilities; and Happy Tails- a therapeutic pet visit
program that provides pet
visits to individuals in area hospitals.
