B 98.5's Jessica Forkel will serve as the emcee for the upcoming For the Love of Dogs Festival.

Listen up, party animals! Here are a couple of fun events benefiting metro Atlanta’s finest four-legged friends.

First up, the Atlanta Humane Society’s Junior Board, known as the 1873 Society Club, holds its annual Humane Event tonight at Summerour Studio in West Midtown.

The event features an open bar, food from favorite restaurants including JCT Kitchen, The Optimist, Miso Izakaya, the Shed at Glenwood and Spice Market, along with live music by Ben Deignan and Kidd Koby Roc and a great silent auction.

The event benefits the AHS’ Howell Mill Animal Wellness Clinic. Tickets are $100 per person and available here.

Next, Dogma Dog Care will host the second annual “For The Love of Dogs Festival” on Nov. 3 at its facility, located at 4790 Wright Drive, S.E. in Smyrna. The event will feature a wide variety of products, guests and services for dogs and their people, including agility and obedience training demonstrations and information about organic food, holistic pet care and fitness.

Tia Torres, host of the Animal Planet series “Pit Bulls and Parolees,” will appear at the event for a special meet and greet while Jessica Forkel, producer of the Vikki and Kelly Morning Show on B 98.5 FM, will serve as emcee.

“There will be fun for the entire family including children and family pets,” said Robin Crawford, owner of Dogma Dog Care, founding sponsor of the festival. “There will be more than 40 vendor booths ranging from pet photography to pet vaccinations. There will be music and food and lots of entertainment, but most importantly, money raised from the event will benefit the new Villa Lobos Rescue Center in New Orleans and several other nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping animals.”
