CUMMING, Ga. — Pets are invited on board with the Humane Society of Forsyth County's first Cruise for Critters Saturday, Aug. 23. The event is a fundraiser for various Humane Society projects, including food, medical care and facilities.
"We really encourage people to buy their tickets in advance," said Kevin Barton, the event's coordinator.
Participants will meet at 11:30 a.m. at Bald Ridge Marina, 1850 Bald Ridge Marina Road in Cumming, before cruising an "Animal Armada" to Port Royale Marina in Gainesville, with Robert Estrada of Tow Boat U.S. leading the procession. The cost is $75 per boat, which purchases an official Cruise for Critters flag to join the armada. Dogs and cats are welcome to attend.
"It's a fun cruise where you can show your solidarity for supporting all the pets of the Humane Society that need our help," Barton said.
