These metro Atlanta dog adoption events won’t be held at shelters

No matter where you adopt a new pet, it’ll likely be a very special moment. 

But there are a few upcoming events in metro Atlanta that might make the experience even more memorable. These events span a restaurant, a brewery, Zoo Atlanta and a horse park.

Take a look:

• Hounds & Rounds at Kaleidoscope, Wednesday, April 18

Releash Atlanta’s second annual event at the bistro will have live music alongside adoptable dogs. The nonprofit assists families who “find going to a shelter sad, difficult or overwhelming,” by finding the type of dog requested for them, according to its Facebook page.

Kaleidoscope Bistro & Pub is located at 1410 Dresden Drive.

• Pups and Pints with Releash Atlanta at Wild Heaven Brewery, Thursday, April 19

Adoptable dogs will arrive at 6 p.m. The brewery will also donate 25 percent of sales to Releash, which works to rescue dogs from high-kill shelters in Georgia. 

Wild Heaven Brewery is located at 135B Maple St., Decatur
