ADOPT A PET: Meet Brownie | Pets
ATLANTA, 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 an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. 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 by adopting a "companion" for yourself or for your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.
Brownie is a ten-month-old Labrador Retriever mix and he’s looking for a forever home. According to the Humane Society, Brownie is a sweet and playful doggie who needs a lot of love and a large yard to run around in. She loves to go on walks and is very friendly with other dogs, children and other people. She’s a medium sized dog, however, she will be getting bigger and we probably grow to be around 80-90 lbs. Brownie is a short hair dog and won’t need much grooming.
If one should choose to adopt a pet from the Atlanta Humane Society, adoption fees include: 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. If you're interested, visit the Humane Society at 981 Howell Mill Road in Atlanta.
Be sure to tune into our Atlanta Humane Society "Pet of the Week" segment every Friday during our afternoon broadcast.
