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.
Starr is a three-month-old female Labrador Retriever mix; she’s looking for a forever home. According to the Humane Society, she will need someone who is patient, caring and loving. Since Starr is such a young dog she needs someone who has the time to commit to training her. Starr is small, now, but she’ll grow to be about 80 lbs. due to her breed.
