The Hall County Animal Shelter is unveiling its new logo and slogan, which capitalize on the shelter's legacy of giving all stray animals a temporary home regardless of age, breed or medical needs.
"The new logo features all types of animals-dogs, cats, reptiles, rabbits-and really emphasizes our role as an all-inclusive organization," said Cindy Langman, program coordinator for the shelter.
Shelter Director Mike Ledford echoed those sentiments, saying the shelter has even built horse stalls recently to accommodate a number of the shelter's equine residents.
He said the shelter's new slogan, "No Animal Left Behind," really resonates with their overall mission.
"We work with rescue groups, veterinarians and other local and national agencies to ensure that every option is exhausted to place these animals in loving homes," said Ledford.
The new logo replaces the one used since the shelter opened in October 2009. Its first public debut will be at Mutts on Main, presented by the Hall County Animal Shelter and Main Street Gainesville. A pet fashion show, concert, training sessions, agility demo and more will all be featured at the event, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the downtown Gainesville Square.
The Hall County Animal Shelter is located at 1688 Barber Road, Gainesville, Ga. 30507. More information about the shelter, including pets available for adoption and donation opportunities, can be found at animalshelter.hallcounty.org.
