ADOPT A PET: Meet Sprite

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.

Sprite is a large, male Pointer hound who was abandoned with his littermates, by his previous owner. According to the Humane Society, he loves to “romp, roll and snuggle”. He is still a puppy so he’s, a bit, clumbsy and carefree but he is pretty, eager to grow up and learn about the world. He enjoys people of all ages and is the perfect age to be housetrained. Sprite can be adopted for $225.00
