TWO LEGS OR FOUR LEGS, come one or come all to Atlanta Humane Society’s (AHS) largest fundraising event of the year: Walk for the Animals – Saving & Celebrating Georgia’s Pets. The second annual 5K will be held at Atlantic Station in Midtown on Oct. 16.

AHS President and CEO Cal Morgan invites “all animal lovers in the community to come out with their dogs and walk with us to end animal cruelty.” AHS helps more than 25,000 animals each year, including placing more than 8,300 adoptable pets into loving homes. Before the weather takes a dive, help AHS get homeless animals o Atlanta’s streets by supporting the cause. There’s no registration fee for the walk, but friends and family are encouraged to create fundraising webpages to gather donations. atlantahumane.org/events
