ADOPT A PET: Meet Taylor

NEWNAN, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a cool purr or a comforting meow adopt a kitten 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.

Taylor is listed as an URGENT adoption at the Newnan-Coweta County Humane Society; he is a large, male German shepherd mix. Taylor has been a resident at the Humane Society since October 6. He has not been neutered and he may need some additional house-training.

Adopt a Golden Atlanta announces  Seniors for Seniors Program

 

Adopt a Golden Atlanta (AGA) is initiating a Seniors for Seniors program, providing a way for seniors age 65 and older to adopt senior golden retrievers (10 years and older) by waiving the adoption fee or facilitating a permanent foster home arrangement.
