ADOPT A PET: Meet Ginseng

ADOPT A PET: Meet Ginseng

 

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.

Local kennel to host Thanksgiving Feast for pups

 

ATLANTA –For the fifth year, the Best Friends Pet Care Kennel will be hosting their holiday dinner for dogs; which will be served on Thanksgiving Day. The kennel thinks Thanksgiving isn’t only a holiday for humans and they’re bringing in the dogs to enjoy a doggie dinner commemorating an important milestone between the Native Americans and European settlers.

This dinner will include “turkey-and-rice dog food topped with freshly-roasted turkey and garnished with carrots and green beans” and sweet potato dog biscuits for dinner.

The kennel will, also, have a sample of the holiday dinner on display and certain guests will be allowed to taste different cuisine up until the big day. 

In addition to their Thanksgiving dinner, Best Friends will be donating food to Cobb County Animal Services for shelter pets to, also, enjoy a taste of Thanksgiving.

ATLANTA, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a cool purr or a comforting meow adopt a kitten 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.

According to the Humane Society, Ayden came to them because his owners couldnt care for him, any longer. He’s a “sweet and adorable” one-year-old, Retriever and Border Collie mix. He enjoys spending time with people and is a favorite at the Humane Society. Ayden needs some “light” trainning but he would be a well-behaved addition to any family. He is neutered but he is not declawed and has more than likely, reached his adult size.
