Paws in the Park
Brook Run Park is the site of this fifth annual charity dog walk, which benefits Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption. Sign up to walk with your pet to raise money for the group’s efforts, or drop by to enjoy the canine craziness. A kids scavenger hunt is planned, and vendors of pet-related products will be on hand. There’s also the possibility you’ll leave with one of the adoptable rescue dogs that will be there looking for a home. Make sure any furry friends are tethered to nonretractable leashes and are up-to-date on shots.
Noon-5 p.m. Nov. 1. $10 admission; $30 to walk. Brook Run Park, 4770 N. Peachtree Road, Dunwoody. 404-815-6680, pawsintheparkatlanta.com.
