ADOPT A PET: Meet Fresca

 

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.

Fresca is a puppy and he has a lot to learn, according to PAWS Atlanta. He was rescued along with eight of his littermates, by local animal control. He is described as loving, outgoing and playful; he also loves people of all ages and other dogs. Fresca can be adopted for $225.00
