Pet Cotillion to crown Atlanta’s purr-tiest pet

Some 15 pets are currently vying for the title of 2012 PALS Spokespet at the annual Pet Cotillion, the spring fundraiser for Pets Are Loving Support, this year set for May 6 at Piedmont Bark.

Last year, Pet Cotillion raised about $14,000, according to PALS Executive Director Kevin Bryant. The money, Bryant says, goes to veterinary care, like heartworm medication, spay and neutering services and flea medication.

Pets competing in the Pet Cotillion have profiles listed on the PALS website ( and can be voted on ($1 per vote) leading up to the event. The pet that raises the most money will be crowned this year’s winner.
