Throughout the week, educational institutions, animal shelters, rescue groups, and humane organizations across the state will be hosting scores of wonderful animal-related special events.  Educators, students, businesses and caring citizens across Georgia will be joining in, creating and planning  exciting activities to celebrate and help animals.  

Events will include adoption fairs, spay/neuter awareness events, shelter  days, R.E.A.D. dog programs in libraries, awareness for the farm animals and therapy dogs visiting hospitals and living-assisted  homes.

Also to be included are a salute to our military and working K9 dogs, educational programs,  blessings for the animals, 5K's, Santa events, bully dog awareness events, and fun-filled holiday festival days for families to enjoy food, music and the always amazing animals!

Please become involved! Events are being planned now, and we urge animal lovers everywhere in Georgia to collectively participate!  See the page "Become Involved" on this website for  great ideas and suggestions on what you can do.

See the Calendar of Events for exciting events already in the planning,  and please note we will be adding events and activities right up and through the exciting week. God Bless the great state of Georgia.
