Shop the final weekend of Mostly Mutts Indoor Yard Sale

The final weekend of the Mostly Mutts 7th annual indoor yard sale at The Space Shop Self Storage, 3148 Johnson  Jerry Road, Marietta, GA 30062 is this Friday and Saturday, March 20-21.

“Whether you donate, shop or both you are making a difference in a dog or cat’s life,” says Tammy Turley, Executive Director of Mostly Mutts. Items for sale include antiques, furniture, electronics, pet supplies, home and garden décor, children’s clothing, games, toys, collectibles, sporting goods, etc.

Shop 10am-4pm both days. Donations of food for Pet Buddies Food Pantry will be accepted during theh sale. Please bring unopened, unexpired dry and canned dog and cat food during the sale. According to the Humane Society of America, four million cats and dogs –about one every eight seconds– are put down in U.S. shelters each year.

Atlanta alone euthanizes around 100,000 animals per year. Many of these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Spay/neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation.

Mostly Mutts is an all volunteer-based, licensed shelter and 501(C)3 organization that has placed over
3,000 animals since its inception in 2004. The mission of Mostly Mutts is to work closely with animal control officers and other rescue organizations to reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters. Mostly Mutts provides housing, health care, training, plus physical and emotional care to adoptable animals until they find a new home. Visit Mostlymutts.org or call 770-325-7387 for more information.
