Responsible dog ownership will be the focus of Kennesaw’s free interactive fourth annual Dreamland Pet Memorial Center Paws in the Park event. The event, hosted by Keep Kennesaw Beautiful, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 20, rain or shine, at Swift-Cantrell Park, 3140 Old 41 Highway in Kennesaw. It will feature service dog demonstrations as well as exhibits by local businesses focused on pet feeding, obedience and adoption as well as other related services. Free samples of pet foods, products and discount offers for services will be available.
“Dog owners sometimes need to be reminded that pet waste contains harmful bacteria that can be picked up in storm water runoff and washed into drains, lakes or ponds, causing significant water pollution,” said Miranda Jones, director of Keep Kennesaw Beautiful. “This event celebrates the joy dogs bring to our lives, but also reminds us of our responsibility to pick up after our dogs and not spoil the environment for others.”
Primrose School of Kennesaw North will have pet owners take the Primrose Paw Print Pledge, vowing to scoop and properly discard waste and make the city safe and clean for everyone.
