ADOPT A PET: Meet Tom

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, Tom is a playful domestic short hair cat. Tom is eleven years old and he’s a very friendly and smart guy. He’s house-trained, neutered and up-to-date with his shots. Tom wants a home but ideally one when he can live a pretty independent life
