Cobb Animal Control will present the inaugural Art, Barks and Purrs Festival 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, June 23, on the front lawn of the Animal Control Shelter, located at 1060 Al Bishop Drive, Marietta.
“This festival is part of a new program to raise awareness of the many homeless animals in Cobb County and encourage the public to visit our shelter,” said Tom Flynn, field services manager and acting facility operations manager. “We want people to know that we are not the old-fashioned ‘dog pound,’ but a place for new beginnings for the cats and dogs who ended up here through no fault of their own.”
Vendors at the festival will feature handcrafted animal-related art, including jewelry, bird feeders and houses, housewares, animal clothing, collars and leashes, pet portraits and pottery.
