ADOPT A PET: Meet Burlap

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.

Burlap is a six-month-old Retriever mix. He was delivered to the Human Society by animal control with his four brothers and sisters. The Humane Society describes him as goofy, clumsy, and playful and they say he provides them with endless amounts of entertainment. Burlap loves meeting new people and wants a family to call his own.  

If one should choose to adopt a pet from PAWS Atlanta, the $175 adoption fee includes: vaccinations and de-worming, a veterinarian visit, a microchip and surgical sterilization. And, a list of the basic requirements for adoption can be found here. PAWS Atlanta is located at 5287 Covington Highway in Decatur.

 Be sure to tune into our Atlanta Humane Society "Pet of the Week" segment every Friday on our afternoon broadcast.
