ADOPT A PET: Meet Honey

ADOPT A PET: Meet Honey

CARROLLTON, 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.

According to the Humane Society, Honey is an “adorable young dog with a sweet disposition and pretty markings”. She is rust colored and black, all over. Honey is a medium sized dog; she’ll probably grow to be a little bigger than she is now. She has been spayed and given her shots.
