ADOPT A PET: Meet Joe | Pets
NEWNAN, 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.
Joe is on the URGENT adoption list. He is a young, medium Labrador mix. Joe is a brown, long haired dog and will probably grow to be about 80 lbs. According to the Humane Society, Joe is a very friendly boy who is good with children and other dogs. He’s up-to-date on all of his shots. Because of his size, he may need some obedience training and will probably be very receptive to it. He can be adopted for $70.
If one should choose to adopt a pet from the Newnan-Coweta County Humane Society, the adoption fee includes: vaccinations and de-worming, a veterinarian visit, a microchip and surgical sterilization. And, a list of the basic requirements for adoption can be found here. Pet adoptions are conducted at PetSmart in the Newnan Pavilion which is located at 1072 Bullsboro Drive in Newnan.
