The only thing better than shopping is shopping for a good cause. Mostly Mutts, a local non-profit animal adoption organization, is hosting their 11th annual flea market fundraiser during the month of March.

Donated items you can find at this market will include (but are not limited to): furniture, collectibles, antiques, china, crystal, kitchen supplies, tools, jewelry, art, pet supplies, handbags, accessories, books, small appliances in good working order, games, toys, storage/ organizational items, office supplies, sports equipment, garden decor, scarves, belts, video games, record albums, DVDs, Christmas décor and clothing in good condition.

All proceeds will go towards the cost of operating Mostly Mutt’s adoption facility. Mostly Mutts works to reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters throughout metro Atlanta.

The flea market is located at 6065 Highway 92 in Acworth. This year’s location is very easy to find – the building used to be a CVS Pharmacy and recently a furniture store called Rooms 1-2-3. The flea market will be open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 12pm-6pm from March 6 to March 30.

Since 2004, Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue has been working to reduce the number of animals euthanized at local shelters in metro Atlanta. They work closely with animal control officers to save adoptable dogs that are often moments away from being put to sleep. Often, these dogs are sick and injured and require rehabilitation. Mostly Mutts provides housing, health care, training, and physical and emotional care to them until they can be placed in a new home. Mostly Mutts holds weekly adoption events at their facility (3238 Cherokee Street in downtown Kennesaw) to help each dog find their “fur-ever home.” The rescue & adoption center hours are Monday – Saturday from 11am – 4pm.

Mostly Mutts is a non-profit organization, licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture, and supported by a community of dedicated volunteers. They are privately funded through donations from the community. For more information or to see the current adoptable animals at Mostly Mutts, please visit:
