ADOPT A PET: Meet Hero

CARROLLTON, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half chewed shoe or overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a "companion" for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

According to the Humane Society, “Hero is a little snuggler whose only desire in life is to be held and loved. He will be happiest in a home where he is the only dog, or the other dogs are roughly his size. Hero is scheduled to be neutered in early November and will be ready to go to his forever home after that.” Hero can be adopted for $150.
