ADOPT A PET: Meet Melody

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.

Melody is a one-year-old retrevier/shepard mix. This puppy is medium and he probably won’t get much larger than this. She’s looking for a “forever” home and wants someone can train him and to give him enough attention so he can become a disciplined dog. She was rescued from a horder and will be featured on a show on the Animal Planet Channel about animals rescued from animal hording situations. She can be yours for $100.00.
