ADOPT A PET: Meet Noah

ADOPT A PET: Meet Noah

 

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.

According to the Atlanta Humane Society, Noah is a sweet, young and playful puppy. Noah is almost a year old, he’s a Labrador retriever mix. Noah will be happiest in a home without young children and he needs lots of attention. This dog will benefit from obedience training and socialization with other dogs and people; perhaps at a park or a play date.
