Learn More about the Rescue Dog Olympics
Rescue Dog Olympics is all about spreading the awareness of pet adoption. According to Pawedin, “It’s staggering to think that in the Atlanta area alone, around 100,000 companion pets are euthanized each year due to the lack of homes!” This is a terrible epidemic that we can together stop by creating awareness and encouraging people to adopt pets who are loving and deserve a second chance at life.
There will be over 20 Atlanta area pet rescues/organizations at Rescue Dog Olympics—so plan to meet your next best friend and start the adoption process at the festival. Rescue Dog Olympics partners with many pet-related companies who will be at the festival to offer you helpful ways spoil your dog with training, pet accessories, treats, boarding and more.
