ADOPT A PET: Meet Shay

ADOPT A PET: Meet Shay

 ATLANTA - 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.

Shay is almost three years old and she’s looking for a stable home. This American Staffordshire and Terrier mix was brought to the Humane Society when her previous owner could no longer care for her. She is a medium sized dog and she, probably, won’t grow any larger. According to the Humane Society, “Shay would like a home where she doesn’t have to worry and where the chew toys are plentiful”.
