St. Francis Day, a joyous celebration when worshipers bring their beloved pets to the Cathedral, is Sunday, October 4. This is also a time to recognize the work done by the employees and volunteers at Atlanta Humane Society (AHS). Did you know that the AHS was given four stars by Charity Navigator, is a good steward of your donation, and was voted the best place to adopt a pet by Atlanta Magazine readers?
AHS serves over 25,000 animals each year including placing approximately 8,000 animals in new homes, performing 12,500 low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, seeing more than 2,500 animals in its veterinary center, assisting law enforcement and other agencies in rescuing close to 1,000 animals, and providing behavior training to more than 1,000 animals and their owners each year.
The 2015 AHS Walk for the Animals will take place Sunday, October 18 at Atlantic Station. Some 4000 animal lovers and their pets are expected. For more information or to participate, visit ahswalkfortheanimals.org.
