Helping Hands for Helping Paws

Animal lovers of all ages will learn how to lend a helping hand to a furry friend without a home at the Helping Hands + Helping Paws Volunteer and Support Fair. This free event – 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018 – will take place at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3030 Poplar Ave.)

More than a dozen local animal-welfare groups will be on hand to offer information about helping stray animals and how customers can make a difference. Whether donating money, time, food or supplies, a little can go a long way for a homeless pet.

As a bonus, therapy dogs will attend Helping Hands + Helping Paws for customers who need a furry friend!

For more information, call Central Library at (901) 415-2726.
