On Saturday, Aug. 11, from 9 am to 2 p.m., Decatur’s Shoal Creek II Park will be going to the dogs (and cats) in a big way at Healthy Pets DeKalb Day.
The event is sponsored by Fix Georgia Pets and LifeLine Animal Project, a 10-year-old animal rescue and advocacy non-profit located in Avondale Estates that routinely reaches out to metro area communities to help pet owners who might not otherwise be able to afford preventative health services for their companion animals.
They operate two low-cost spay and neuter clinics (in Avondale and College Park) and they hold Pet Wellness Days twice monthly at these clinics, supplying pet vaccinations and health testing to the public at well below market cost.
Through their Community LifeLine initiative they reach directly into area neighborhoods to help people and their pets build stronger and healthier communities.
