DeKalb County Solicitor-General’s Office to Host “Animal Justice League” Animal Safety


The event will provide information on animal safety and laws around animal neglect.
DECATUR, Ga. – The DeKalb County Solicitor-General’s Office is hosting the “Animal Justice
League” Animal Safety event on September 17, 2022.

The purpose of the event is to educate the community on the various actions that are
considered animal neglect and animal cruelty and to also provide knowledge surrounding
resources available for pet owners. There will be representatives from DeKalb County Animal
Services, PAWS Atlanta, and the Atlanta Police Department. There will be giveaways and free
pet food will be offered on-site.

“We receive a lot of animal cases, and we work hard daily to address each case. COVID has
played a role in these cases and so has a general lack of knowledge. It is important that we
educate the public on what it means to lawfully raise pets in a healthy manner. This event is an
attempt to provide resources and knowledge so that pet owners in DeKalb County are better
equipped with loving our four-legged friends” said DeKalb County Solicitor-General Donna

The “Animal Justice League” event will take place on September 17, 2022, from 11:00 am until
1:00 pm. The event will be held at the Walmart located at 2427 Gresham Road SE, Atlanta, GA
