ADOPT A PET: Meet Brewster

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.

Brewster is a four-year-old Retriever mix and she’s available for adoption from the PAWS Atlanta, the DeKalb County Humane Society. Brewster would be considered full grown, so he probably won’t grow much. He’s long haired and red. Brewster came from a “dog hoarding situation in Alabama” and vets in Atlanta determined that he had suffered brain damage as a young puppy. He’s described as a “sweet and kind-hearted” and his afraid to stay in the shelter.
