Four Companies Support New Community Pet Center in Stone Mountain

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by AARF)  The difficult economy has left many pets homeless and abandoned. The crisis of stray and abandoned pets has reached epic levels in the Atlanta metro area.

But one local animal welfare group is trying to do something new in these tough times. Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends is expanding their services at a new community pet center in Stone Mountain. The new AARF Pet Central will offer adoptions, training and pet supplies at a time when homeless pets need all of the help they can get.

National flooring provider, Lumber Liquidators, has stepped up to provide 1500 square feet of flooring for the new facility. In addition, three local Atlanta businesses are supporting AARF's efforts to save more pets and to keep more pets in their homes. WAG-A-LOT, Dream Land Pet Memorial Center and Showseason Animal Products have all committed their resources to helping more pets at AARF Pet Central.

Says Director Susan Leisure, "We are proud to be partnering with such wonderful and supportive companies. They recognize the problems we face in animal welfare, and are using their resources to make a change." All four companies will be permanently recognized in the building for their contribution, and Leisure hopes that more businesses will recognize the value in supporting animal welfare in the Atlanta area. "We have donor opportunities that start as low as $500," explains Leisure. "For less than the price of most magazine advertisements, a business can have a permanent place in our facility and know that their money is being used to save lives. We need more businesses to get on board with what we are doing and we hope they'll decide to redirect some of the marketing dollars or charitable funds.'"
