There’s never a bad opportunity to help the animals at the westside-headquartered Atlanta Humane Society (AHS), but a pair of excellent chances are on the upcoming horizon.
Up first is Thursday’s second annual “Tables for Tails” event taking place at many participating restaurants around the greater Atlanta area
Treat yourself to breakfast, lunch and/or dinner out at some of Atlanta’s most popular eateries guilt free knowing that 20 percent of your check will be donated to AHS.
A few of the restaurants in the Midtown Patch coverage area that are participating include eleven at the Loews Hotel, Park 75 at the Four Seasons Hotel, Pasta di Pulcinella, Six Feet Under – Westside, and West Egg Café. For a complete list of participating restaurants, see here.
Don’t forget to tell your server you are there for “Tables for Tails!”
The third annual soiree will return to the Summerour Studio, located at 409 Bishop Street in the Loring Heights neighborhood, on Thursday, Oct. 18. Last year’s event raised $80,000 with 225 guests in attendance.
“As our organization continues to evolve, we are hoping to raise more money than ever thanks to growing community support and awareness,” said 1873 Society Club chair Sam Henderson in a statement.
Tickets are $100 per person until 5 p.m. on October 17, or $125 at the door. Buy tickets here.
Founded in 1873, AHS is the oldest nonprofit animal welfare organization in Atlanta. AHS works to address pet overpopulation, help abused animals and encourage pet adoption.
The shelter is open seven days a week for adoptions and does not euthanize for time or space. The organization offers many assistance programs and services, including spaying and neutering, dog training, educational programs, pet boutique, grief counseling, animal admission and pet-facilitated therapy.
AHS operates the Howell Mill Road Animal Wellness Clinic at 981 Howell Mill Rd. Wellness services are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Since the AHS is funded through donations, volunteers are always need to assist operations.
