World famous and highly respected dog trainer, Victoria Stilwell, will be at PAWS Atlanta on November 5th from 12- 4 P.M. Victoria Stilwell will be participating in the 45th Anniversary celebration of PAWS – the animal shelter located in Decatur. Since filming an episode of her show, “It’s Me or the Dog”, at the PAWS shelter she has become its most celebrated advocate. In addition, you may purchase one of her many books and have it autographed.
As a private not- for- profit animal welfare organization, PAWS Atlanta receives no funding from the federal, state or local governments. Since its founding in 1966, the shelter receives all of its funding through private donations and community support, which allows it to perform the vital services that it offers.
PAWS offers love, nutritional care, medical care, and basic training to enrich an animal’s life. The dedicated staff, which also consists of volunteers, works very diligently to find permanent homes for the animals. Every year animals (primarily dogs and cats) that have been abused, neglected or abandoned are taken in by PAWS and are given loving care. PAWS also offers pet adoption services, low-cost vaccinations, spay and neutering and educational courses on how to care for a pet.
Come out on Saturday and join Victoria Stilwell in celebrating the shelter’s 45th anniversary. There will be artists, authors, food, pet products, music, animals, and the event is FREE! The shelter is located at 5287 Covington Highway, Decatur, Georgia.
