Walk N Wag

Pet-friendly fun hosted by Keep Newnan Beautiful

This little guy was an eager participant in the Walk n' Wag event.

It was a day to get out in the fresh air and enjoy a walk with a furry friend at the recent fourth annual Walk n' Wag, hosted jointly by Keep Newnan Beautiful and Newnan-Coweta Humane Society.

The event was held at the Coweta County Recreation Department's Temple Avenue Complex.

Participants were invited along with their dogs - though dogs were not required to participate - on a one-mile walk that began and ended at the Asa Powell Sr. Expo Center off Temple Avenue.

'A perfect walk with your dog is a great way to start your day,' said Duffey. Each participant received a T-shirt for participating in the event.

The route took walkers and their dogs on a leisurely stroll around the complex at the Expo Center. Participants were provided food and beverages and more than two dozen Cub Scouts from Pack 55 were stationed along the walk, guiding the way and offering water to walkers and dogs.

In addition to the walk, vendors were on hand with a variety of products catering to dogs and dog-lovers. Shopping opportunities included information on dog training, homemade doggie biscuits, dog apparel, food vendors, and dog and cat adoptions. Onsite micro-chipping was also available.

The event combined the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society's fall low-cost vaccine clinic. Rabies and DHPP vaccines were offered for dogs, and rabies and FVRCP vaccines for cats.

Attendees were able to meet with one of Newnan's K-9 teams, both dog and handler, and learn about the important job these teams do.

Other activities during the day included a fire truck on display for children to see, touch and explore. Also offered were a variety of contests as well as dog and cat adoptions. Jerry Parker with Invisible Fence emceed the event.
