Cobb Animal Control staff will host its third annual ART-Barks and Purrs 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, June 21. This is part of continuing efforts to find homes for the homeless animals of Cobb County. The festival is designed to bring people to the shelter via an exciting event.
Staff and volunteers, along with local rescue groups, all work together to get the animals in new homes. At the event, more than 30 local arts and crafts vendors that have animal related art will be on hand. The free, fun and family-friendly festival will be held at the shelter, 1060 Al Bishop Drive, Marietta, and include great raffle prizes, special adoption rates and food. Participants are encouraged to bring an unexpired and unopened dog or cat food donation to help the community.
