ADOPT A PET: Meet Miss Sarah

ADOPT A PET: Meet Miss Sarah

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. 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.

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.

BEST SPOTS: Dog Parks

BEST SPOTS: Dog Parks

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- For this week's edition of Best Spots, we have compiled a list of dog parks for you to take you furry friend for some fun.

Recently, dog parks have been sprouting up in the Atlanta area. With newly modified leash law restrictions, owners who may or may not have yards need a place for their dogs to run free and get adequate daily exercise.

Some say, these parks are becoming more popular as the country begins placing more of an emphasis on health following the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative.

Dog owners in the PTC can take their furry children to the Peachtree City Dog Park for some off-leash exercise. The park is located on McIntosh Trail. The park is a 3.5 acre area behind the BMX track. The park is fenced and surrounded by a forest. The park is located at 191 McIntosh Trail in Peachtree City.

The brand new, Bark Park, in Hampton is a dog park with lots of clever attractions.
