There's a new fundraising event here in Atlanta that is meant to benefit our furry friends. Hooters sponsors events around the country, playfully dubbed “Hooters for Neuters,” aimed at raising awareness of the necessity and importance of spay/neuter procedures for pets. The fundraiser takes place Tuesday, February 25th from 5-8pm at the Hooters at Cumberland location.
There will be various pet adoption and shelter organizations represented at the event- one of whom is Canine Cellmates. They are a non-profit jail dogs program that pairs shelter dogs with carefully screened Fulton County jail inmates for an 8-week period, during which time basic command and potty training is given to the dog in hopes of making him/her a more attractive adoptee. The program is transformative for both dog and inmate and both parties reap the benefits of their time together.
Hooters has generously agreed to donate $1 to Canine Cellmates for every flyer that is printed out and brought to the event (see attached flyer). In addition- the event features a 50/50 raffle, a free Hooters wing party raffle and a free spay/neuter ticket for attendees.
