The Marietta-based Homeless Pets Foundation is hosting a fundraiser and benefit concert on Friday to raise funds for a vehicle to transport disabled pets.
The fundraiser will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Friday at Finer Consignments at 1465 Roswell Road at Powers Ferry Road in the New London Square shopping center in Marietta. There will be live music, free food, silent auctions of jewelry and accessories, and cats and dogs ready to be adopted.
The adoption fee for a dog is $195 and $100 for a cat, and includes the animal’s spay/neuter and up-to-date shots.
Established in 1998, the Homeless Pets Foundation often takes in animals in the worst shape from area shelters, including those that have been injured, neglected or abused and ones scheduled for euthanasia. The all-volunteer organization then rehabilitates them at the Town and Country Veterinary Clinic in Marietta, run by veterinarian Dr. Michael Good. Once rehabilitated, the animals are put up for adoption.
The foundation has been responsible for more than 15,000 cat and dog adoptions, Good said.
