Shelby County Humane Society Hosts " Paws in the Gardens"

      Local families can enjoy some time at Aldridge Gardens and help the Shelby County Humane Society on Saturday.

      The Humane Society will host "Paws in the Gardens" beginning at 9 a.m. This all-day event gives pet owners and their furry friends the chance to enjoy some time outdoors and learn about the importance and benefits of training, nutrition, grooming, breed education and vet services. There will be a doggy costume contest, "Ask the Trainer", face painting and Full Moon BBQ.

      Tickets are $10 per dog. Proceeds after expenses will be donated to the Humane Society.

      Aldridge Gardens is located at 3530 Lorna Road in Hoover.
