On Saturday, March 30 from 9 AM to 12 PM at the Governor’s Mansion, First Lady Marty Kemp will host a pet adoption day for rescue cats and dogs. Mrs. Kemp has partnered with Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black, and several humane societies, animal shelters, and pet rescues across the state to find permanent homes for animals in need.
“The Kemps are excited to open our home to promote pet adoption and find forever homes for rescue cats and dogs,” said First Lady Marty Kemp. “Our family has always held a special place in our hearts for animals, so we are thrilled to have so many state and local partners ready to join us in this important initiative.”
Commissioner Gary Black will be with the First Lady at the adoption day. Visitors at the Mansion will also have the opportunity to visit with the Georgia Grown mascot, Georgie, at the event.
“We are excited for this upcoming event and the exposure that it will bring to pets in need of forever homes. The Georgia Department of Agriculture shares the First Lady’s passion for animals, and we are proud to partner with her in this endeavor,” said Commissioner Gary Black.
Anyone can easily register for this adoption event through the First Lady’s website. There are three one-hour time slots offered to visit with the pets available for adoption. All adoption fees and documentation will be handled by the humane societies, shelters, and rescues in attendance. The Atlanta Humane Society and Lowndes County Animal Shelterwill be two of the organizations at the event.
“The Atlanta Humane Society is honored to partner with the First Lady of Georgia for this pet adoption event,” said Cal Morgan, President and CEO of the Atlanta Humane Society. “We will be able to raise awareness of the homeless pets in our state and increase the numbers of animals being adopted into loving homes, including many who will find homes at this event.”
“Communities across Georgia face similar challenges related to caring for homeless pets. Each year, rescues, shelter personnel, and independent volunteers spend countless hours securing resources to care for an ever expanding pet population. The opportunity to highlight the plight of these animals at the state level is invaluable to the efforts of those dedicated to the cause,” said Paige Dukes, Lowndes County. “We are thrilled to be a part of Pet Adoption Day at the Governor’s Mansion, and we are forever grateful to First Lady Kemp for her ongoing efforts to help those that cannot help themselves. Through education and awareness, we can provide a better future for pets and the people that care for them.”
