ADOPT A PET: Meet Taffy

ADOPT A PET: Meet Taffy

NEWNAN, 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 overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. 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 but adopting a “companion” for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Taffy is a young Pit Bull terrier mix who needs a stable home. According to the Humane Society, Taffy is a ready for a home and will remain completely loyal to you. She’s full of energy and loves to play; she’s eager to become a member of your family.  She is up to date on her vaccinations and has been at the shelter since July 5.
