Pet of the Week: Dining out to help shelter animals

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- The Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley (HSTV) invites animal lovers and diners alike to join them for the 2nd Annual Paws on the Table. On Tuesday, April 18, dine out at Knoxville’s best spots for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks to benefit homeless animals in the community.

When diners eat at one of over 20 participating restaurants, 15 percent of their meal purchases will go directly to HSTV and the organization’s efforts to care for animals in need. Many of the participating restaurants have dog friendly patios for those who wish to enjoy a meal with Fido. For a list of participating restaurants, diners can click here.

Pet of the Week: Murdock is a 3-month-old Lab mix. This sweet little boy was born blind, but he doesn’t let that stop him from giving all his love. If you are interested in Murdock or any of HSTV’s adoptable animals visit their website website.
