Who We Are

The Briarcliff Animal Foundation (BAF) is a volunteer based, non-profit organization formed exclusively to promote and provide funding for animal care. 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 broader scale. 
In 2005, the Briarcliff Animal Foundation was formed. It was a groundbreaking year for the foundation and its President, Dr. Peter Muller, III. He personally delivered over $30,000 in veterinary medical relief supplies to Hattiesburg, Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. Dr. Muller (a private pilot) airlifted medical supplies to veterinarians who were displaced as a result of the hurricane. These supplies helped save the lives of many animals, including dogs and horses 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 issue of 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 spent $45,000 on stray pets, as well as on those pets belonging to clients without the financial 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 wellness care. Our “Purrfect Pet” adoption program provides necessary veterinary care for adoptable cats that might otherwise be euthanized. Now, in an effort to broaden support in the Atlanta community, BAF provides funding to the following animal related programs around Atlanta: The Atlanta Dog Park- an off-leash park in Piedmont Park where dogs can run and play; University of Georgia Veterinary School; Pets Are Loving 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.
