ADOPT A PET: Meet Accent

ADOPT A PET: Meet Accent

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.

Accent is a five month old Hound mix and he's available for adoption from the Atlanta Humane Society. He’s a small dog who needs long walks and a family to send a few days per week walking and playing catch with me.

Martin Kaymer is a five month old Retriever-Labrador-Hound mix who is looking for a new home. He needs a place to run and play and is looking for a family who will give him love, care and time. He’s a short haired dog so summer grooming won’t be an immensely arduous task. Martin will need a couple of hours of exercise every day.

BEST SPOTS: Dog Parks

BEST SPOTS: Dog Parks

ATLANTA -- 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 Atlanta area can take their furry children to the Henry Jones Dog Park in Brook Run Park for some off-leash exercise. This fully wooded park in Dunwoody is four acres large however; it doesn’t have a water fountain. Dogs can drink from a community water bucket which is provided by the park.
