I am a volunteer at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. Our dogs are in need of Kongs for their kennels. These toys last and give our little "orphans" something to do to relieve stress and boredom. Also, we are still in need of more dog walkers. If you have put on a few pounds after the holidays, consider walking our dogs. Your heart will be a little lighter, also.
