ADOPT A PET: Meet Valentine

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.

Valentine is a one-year-old Retriever Lab mix who has a lot of curiosity and a big desire to learn. She is available for adoption from the PAWS Atlanta, the DeKalb County Humane Society. Valentine is a loving dog and enjoys being the central part of the family. She's a pleasant dog, overall and is looking for a permanent home.

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.
