ADOPT A PET: Meet Patty

DECATUR, 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.

Meet Patty, according to the Humane Society, she is a “super-playful and loving puppy”. She needs an active home and tons of attention. She is still learning about the world and is eager to learn tricks and become a training adult dog. Patty jumps pretty high and likes to conquer fences. She can be adopted for about $175.00.
