‘Doggie kissing booth’ to be held at Atlanta pet supply store


A mistletoe sale and “doggie kissing booth” will soon be held at a Grant Park pet supply store to raise money for a nonprofit.

Proceeds from the event at Intown Healthy Hound will benefit Stubby's Heroes, which advocates on behalf of pit bulls and other “bully breeds.”

The mistletoe, $5, will be sold in sealed bags and tied with bows to benefit the charity. The plant will also be hung high above the donation-based kissing booth to “encourage doggie kisses with owners,” according to an event volunteer.
