ADOPT A PET: Meet Minnow

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.

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.

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.

Volleyball Fans, Animal Lovers Unite at Pet Blessing & Festival

Volleyball Fans, Animal Lovers Unite at Pet Blessing & Festival

By Dunn Neugebauer

Where’s the “in” place to gather for a combined volleyball and pet lover? Answer: a Pet Blessing & Festival, that’s where!

It happened Oct. 2 at Avondale Patillo United Methodist Church's Second Annual All Creatures Great and Small Pet Blessing & Festival, an event in which the Holy Innocents' Episcopal School 7th-grade volleyball team enjoyed a morning of peace, pets and passion. Team-mates not only wore their team jerseys, but brought their beloved pets to the morning service, as well.

“It was a great way to just come out and have fun,” said 7th-grade volleyball Coach and Pet Festival Director Julie Fennell. “It was a great opportunity for the kids to get away from the court and bond with each other. Oh, they worked, but they had fun.”

The team arrived at 8:45 a.m. They helped coaches set up chairs, aided vendors and put up tents, among other chores.
