ADOPT A PET: Meet Shiloh

DECATUR, 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.

Meet Shiloh, according to the Humane Society, she is “very shy”. She hides from new visitors but if you just give her a little time and treats she quickly warms up. She gets along well with other dogs and is sweet to people of all ages. She is a timid dog and may not do well with children. Shiloh is housebroken and she can be adopted for about $175.00.
