ADOPT A PET: Meet Cherrio

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.

Ponce is a male, Chocolate Lab mix who needs a home. According to the Humane Society, Ponce is a sweet, calm and cooperative; they say he’s a gem of a dog. He looks older than he actually is because he has, a bit of, grey hair on his muzzle. However, he’s only about 2 or 3 years old. Ponce is pretty laid back and the Human Society thinks he will be an exciting edition to any family.
