ADOPT A PET: Meet Tess

 

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 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.

Tess is on the foster adoption list. She is a young, female, medium Labrador mix. Tess is a brindle color and she will probably grow to be about 80 lbs. According to the Humane Society, Tess is a sweetheart she’s a very friendly girl who is good with children and other dogs. She’s up-to-date on all of her shots. Because of her size, she may need some obedience training and will probably be very receptive to it. She can be adopted for $70.
