ATLANTA (AP) - Fulton County prosecutors say the District Attorney will honor animal advocates during the National Animal Cruelty Prosecution Conference in Atlanta next week.

Organizers say the conference is expected to bring together prosecutors, criminal justice professionals and animal advocates.

District Attorney's officials say Animal Defender honorees include Victoria Stilwell, host of the Animal Planet Show "It's Me or the Dog," the Ahimsa House - which shelters animals from people who are escaping from domestic violence and several others.

The conference runs from May 5 through May 7 and is being hosted at the State Bar of Georgia Headquarters.
