ADOPT A PET: Meet Ming

ADOPT A PET: Meet Ming

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.

Ming is a one year old female Hound and Shepard mix and she's available for adoption from the Atlanta Humane Society. Ming came to the Humane Society because her owner couldn’t take care of her, anymore. She is a very active puppy and needs a lot of outdoor play. The Humane Society hopes she finds a home where she can learn new things while being spoiled.

Ponce is a male, Chocolate Lab mix who needs a home. According to the Humane Society, Ponce is a sweet, calm and cooperative; they say he’s a gem of a dog. He looks older than he actually is because he has, a bit of, grey hair on his muzzle. However, he’s only about 2 or 3 years old. Ponce is pretty laid back and the Human Society thinks he will be an exciting edition to any family.

McDONOUGH, 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 overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy 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.

Miss Sarah is an adult female Chihuahua. She gets along with other dogs and it is recommended that she live in a securely fenced yard and a dedicated owner to provide her with as much exercise as she needs. Currently, she lives with another dog and the Humane Society recommends that her future owners have another pet.

COLLEGE PARK: New law targets 'potentially dangerous' dogs

COLLEGE PARK: New law targets 'potentially dangerous' dogs

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- As of July 1, owners of dogs the city of College Park deems "potentially dangerous" must register their pooches and pay a $25 processing fee.

Councilman Ambrose Clay suggested the Potentially Dangerous Dog Ordinance after two brutal dog attacks last summer in his district.

"What the person has to do is go to the vet and get a chip implanted into the dog for indentification purposes.  They also have to submit a photograph of the dog, and they'll be isssued a brightly colored tag that will identify it as a potentially dangerous dog," said Clay.

The city says it also wants to make sure those dog owners have insurance to cover any damage or injuries.

The new ordinance does not sit well with people like Heidi Pollyea and her group Dogs Deserve Bettter.

"Breed profiling is wrong.  It targets the dog when the real problem with any canine is how the owners raise and treat it," said Pollyea.
