ADOPT A PET: Meet Goodwill

 

MARIETTA, 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. 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.

According to the Humane Society, Goodwill is a medium hair, black mix cat. He is two years old and very shy. Goodwill is a calm housecat and his siblings Favor and Kindness are, also, living in the shelter. If you’re looking for a new playmate Goodwill just may be the one for you. The cat is up-to-date with her shots, house trained, and neutered.

Adopt a Golden Atlanta (AGA) is initiating a Seniors for Seniors program, providing a way for seniors age 65 and older to adopt senior golden retrievers (10 years and older) by waiving the adoption fee or facilitating a permanent foster home arrangement.
