ADOPT A PET: Meet Fawn

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 Fawn, a one year old Miniature Pinscher mix. According to the Humane Society, Fawn was found alone and wandering the street. She is playful and has a lot of energy. According to the Humane Society, she loves to be surrounded with her toys and a lot of people. They also said she needs a family that will be patient with her and allow her to “sniff around and make new friends”.
