ADOPT A PET: Meet Sasha

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.

Sasha is a three-year-old German Shepherd mix who is all about learning tricks and wowing her owners. According to the shelter, she’s a big goofball when it’s time to play but her handlers say she’s deadest on learning tricks. Although Sasha is apprehensive when she meets people for the first time, once she warms up to people she’s very sweet and affectionate. She always welcomes petting and a “scratch behind the ear”. Come visit her and she’ll probably win your heart. Sasha can be adopted for $175.00 and is a part of the Large Dog Adoption program at PAWS.
