On a chilly Saturday morning recently, members of North Georgia Animal Alliance participated in Chattanooga-based Humane Educational Society’s annual fundraising event "A Christmas Tail 5K & Mutt Strut."

NGAA president Emily Sadler says her group transfers dogs to HES for adoption on a regular basis. "Any time we can do something to help them, we're happy to," says Sadler.

NGAA recently unveiled its new logo to go with its new name. The group operated as Catoosa Citizens for Animal Care for over 20 years, but changed its name last month to reflect the broader area in which they work.

The new logo shows a dog and a cat facing each other, their tails curled around the name of the organization, superimposed on an outline of the state of Georgia, with a heart in the northwest corner, the area served by NGAA.
