ADOPT A PET: Meet Kona

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.

Kona is almost a year old and she's a Lab mix. She is a puppy and is small, now, but she will probably get considerably larger. She’s black and white with short hair, so shedding won’t be an issue. According to the Humane Society, her previous owners said she doesn’t respond well to men. She is a sweet dog and will require lots of training to be her best. She’s looking for a “forever” home and wants someone to give her enough attention so he can become a disciplined dog. She can be yours for $100.00.
