AC Pup selected as national mascot for nonprofit

AC Pup, the mascot for Central Georgia CARES, has a new name to add to his tags -- national mascot for the Homeless Pets Clubs.

The nonprofit, founded in 1998 by veterinarian Michael Good, picked the celebrity animal from Macon to help save homeless animals, according to a news release. The nonprofit has placed more than 10,000 animals in homes across 18 states, according to the release.

“We are proud to announce AC Pup as our new mascot,” Good said in the release. “Homeless Pet Clubs works hard to engage within communities and having AC Pup as the face of our brand will help us build a vibrant, compassionate environment where adoptable animals are rescued, nurtured and placed in loving homes.”
