Heroic pets to be honored

SUWANEE — Do you own a service, therapy, military or otherwise heroic pet? Contact the Georgia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The organization is offering a free professional photograph for pet owners who can write a story about their animal heroes when they come in for a photo session.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, pets will get their stories and photos posted on the Georgia SPCA’s website and in a special album on its Facebook page.

Participants must tell staff why their pet is a hero and bring in a typed story in honor of the animal as well as the animal itself for a close-up picture.

Those interested can call 678-765-2726 to make an appointment.
