ADOPT A PET: Meet Fajita

 

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.

Fajita is a three year old Australian Shepherd mix. According to the shelter, she arrived at the shelter “very pregnant and delivered puppies within days of her arrival”. Fajita is a “beautiful, young dog”; she is already house-broken and she walks well on a leash. She can be adopted for about $225.
