The 7th Annual Athens Street Fair takes place on Friday, July 20th (12 PM – 8 PM) and Saturday the 21st (9 AM – 2 PM) on S Main Street in downtown Athens. The Street Fair will have over 65 different vendors, delicious food, fun games for the kids and live music performances by Devin Franks and the Ampersand Project.

We will be teaming up with the Animal Care Sanctuary to try to find some pets their “forever homes”. The Animal Care Sanctuary will be bringing adoptable dogs and if the weather isn’t too hot, some adoptable cats too!

The Animal Care Sanctuary is a non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt homeless animals and advocate for the well-being of all animals. The sanctuary provides a safe and caring refuge for companion animals, inspires change through education, supports spay/neuter initiatives, advocates for the human treatment of all animals, and the establishment of a no kill nation.

For anyone that may be interested, we will also be there with some giveaways and information on how to protect your four-legged copilots while you’re traveling but helping these animals find permanent homes is our primary objective.

If you are interested in adopting a pet of your own, know someone who does, or you just want to say hello and visit some of the animals, stop by the shared Gannon Associates Insurance and Animal Care Sanctuary booth which will be in front of the Gannon Associates Insurance office. The Animal Care Sanctuary will also be selling t-shirts to raise funds to support their efforts.
