Help for Homeless Pets

As sad as it is, not all pets have a wonderful home with a window that looks out on the yard from the sunny spot on your person’s desk, like I do.
Yes, there are lots and lots of pets that need a home, and lots of people who work hard to try and provide homes for them. One of those groups is the Homeless Pets Foundation in Marietta. The Homeless Pets Foundation was founded in 1998 by Dr. Michael Good, an Atlanta veterinarian who saw a need for help and homes for the homeless pets in the area. Since 2002, the Homeless Pets Foundation has found homes for over 10,000 homeless pets here in North Georgia.
You can help and have fun to boot; on February 8th, at Marlow’s Tavern in Kennesaw, there will be a fundraiser –accent on ‘fun’– at the Second Annual ‘I Love My Pet’ Fundraiser for the Homeless Pets Foundation.
The fundraiser will be held from 7 pm to 11 pm and will offer “great food, drink specials, door prizes and more.” The Zaib Kahn Band will perform and their will be a special photo contest, so bring a picture of your pet!
Marlow’s Tavern is located at 745 Chastain Road in Kennesaw. For more information, visit them online at http://www.marlowstavern.com/.
