ADOPT A PET: Meet Moxie

 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.

Moxie is a one-year-old terrier mix who needs affection and is searching for a family. People commonly mistake Ms. Moxie for a “big and bad” dog but she’s pretty much, just an oversized lap dog. According to the Humane Society, Moxie enjoys physical affection and takes well to women. They, also, recommend that she be adopted by a family with previous experience with dogs and that she is placed in a home without young children. Moxie can be your pet for $100.
