ADOPT A PET: Meet Cuyahoga

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.

Cuyahoga is a one year old Siberian Husky, who was adopted from the Humane Society as a puppy and returned as an adult. He has a Husky’s attitude and does best in a home with someone who has owned the breed before. Cuyahoga need to be crate trained and it is recommended that he live indoors with a fenced in backyard to exercise in. He needs daily walks to keep him mentally stimulated. Cuyahoga can be yours for $150.00.
