Animal Advocacy Group Plans K-9 Memorial Fundraiser

Green Pets America Charities will host a community fundraiser to raise money for a law enforcement K-9 memorial.

Green Pets America Charities is asking the public to come out and support its efforts to fund a proposed law enforcement K-9 memorial.

Green Pets America Charities will hold a Bark-B-Que fundraiser to raise money for the project, which is being created by a local artist to honor the K-9 units that serve and protect Cherokee County residents.

Tckets are $10 and include a lunch meal and a goodie bag filled with free items and discounts from local Cherokee County merchants. The fundraiser will run 10 days and tickets can be redeemed from noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 1 through Sunday, May 11 at J. Miller’s Smokehouse.

The restaurant is at 156 Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock. The organization has also reached out to local artists to hold a pet-themed art show at J. Miller's during the 10-day fundraiser. The art opening is slated to be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, May 1.

Artists that have signed on to participate include Woodstock photographer Darleen Prem, Denise Rivkin, Kathryn Gentile, Peggy McMahan and Katherine Gettys. A portion of the proceeds from art sales will be donated to Green Pets America for the memorial building fund.  

Founded in 2006, Green Pets America Charities is a Cherokee County-based nonprofit animal advocacy and education organization that promotes animal welfare and provides grants to animal rescue organizations. 

Purchase tickets online at www.GPAcharities.us or in person at Camp Bow Wow, Sassy Paws, J. Miller's Smokehouse or BridgeMill Animal Hospital in Canton.
