We like big MUTTS!
Dear Friends and Pet Lovers,
On Sunday, October 15th, the Atlanta Humane Society will host its annual Walk for the Animals 5K fundraiser at Atlantic Station. Several of us have banded together to form the team We Like Big MUTTS! We'll be walking with our canine companions to support homeless pets in the southeast until they find their forever families.
Until the Walk, we're counting on YOU to help us meet our fundraising goal. All funds that are raised will help the Atlanta Humane Society in its mission to save the lives of homeless animals and care for them until they are adopted into loving homes. Some key facts you may not know about the Atlanta Humane Society and the important work they do:
AHS will adopt out more than 8,000 dogs and cats this year, and will spay and neuter more than 12,000 animals.
AHS just took in over 450 dogs and cats from Florida and Texas who were evacuated due to Irma and Harvey.
In addition to adoptions, AHS is strongly focused on keeping pets with their families during times of uncertainty by providing dog training courses, behavior counseling, and soon a pet food bank!
AHS operates a full service animal hospital offering a range of general and surgical services – all open to the public and with a variety of payment plans.
Our team’s fundraising goal is $3000. Imagine all the food, microchips, puppy toys, kitty trees, and veterinary care that will buy for deserving animals!
A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated and will go to such good use by the amazing staff and volunteers at the Atlanta Humane Society. Just think what your dollars can do:
$5 buys a jar of peanut butter to fill a Kong toy – hours of fun and active play for a shelter dog
$10 buys a stainless steel food bowl for a growing puppy
$25 buys a microchip for a new adoptee so she can always find her way back home
$50 helps cover the cost to spay or neuter a new arrival to the shelter
$75 feeds 7 dogs for a month
$100 provides critical medical and surgical care to animals with injuries, illnesses, or disabilities

Thanks to all who participate and help this worthy cause.
