Proceeds of the dog show will go toward supporting the CCHS Empty Pet Bowls and Fix Fido programs. Empty Pet Bowls is a “soup kitchen for animals,” providing low-income Carroll County residents with pet food. During the economic downturn of recent years, there was an increase in the number of people who had to make the difficult decision to turn their animals over to the animal shelter because they could not afford to feed them. CCHS developed EPB in order to address this problem and help keep more pets in their homes. Fix Fido is a program which subsidizes spay and neuter services at the West Georgia Spay Neuter Clinic for the pets of financially distressed Carroll County residents. Both programs are dedicated to reducing the number of homeless animals in our community.
