ADOPT A PET: Meet Lieutenant

ADOPT A PET: Meet Lieutenant

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, Lieutenant is a domestic short hair; grey and white cat looking for a home. He lives with his brother Colonel. The Humane Society would prefer if he and his brother could find homes, together. These cats enjoy being petted but don’t like being picked up.
