Shane Harrison sits down with Kevin Casebier of the European Film Festival. Beginning May 12, it will be three days of vibrant and engaging cinema, showcasing the colorful variety of European on-screen storytelling while exploring the many expressions of European identity. Shane also takes a look at this weekend’s Sweet Auburn Springfest and the 20th Annual Kirkwood Spring Fling. And, of course, he’ll introduce you to Summer, our pet of the week.

She’s independent, athletic, and, of course, she loves the outdoors. Summer enjoys being active and doing zoomies around the back yard. Anyone up for a fun game of tug of war? Summer will gladly play along. Meet Summer today and enjoy sunshine all year round. Email adoptions@fultonanimalservices.com to learn more about Summer.
