ADOPT A PET: Meet Laredo

 

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.

Laredo is a medium, one-year-old Border Collie mix who loves people. According to the Humane Society, he turns into Mr. Wiggles when another person enters the room. He is black and white and has medium length hair; he may require more grooming than a short haired dog. Laredo my need some light obedience training but more than anything she needs to have a family who love her and want to care for her. She can be adopted for $175.00 and is a part of the Large Dog Adoption program at PAWS.
