ADOPT A PET: Meet Pocaroo

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.

Pocaroo, is a five- month-old Retriever/Lab mix, and she's available for adoption from the Atlanta Humane Society. Currently, she’s classified as a small dog however an average Labrador Retriever can grow to be, as much as, 130 pounds. She’s black, all over, with a white marking on her chest. Pocaroo has been spayed but she has not been declawed and she can be yours for $100.00.
