Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish – a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family.
Throughout the month of March I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who are hoping to “get lucky” this month and find a forever home with their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.
Today’s featured pet is Virginia from DeKalb County Animal Services. Here is a description of Virginia from the LifeLine Animal Project Facebook page:
LifeLine’s Dekalb County Animal Services shelter pup Virginia is a laid back girl who is bursting at the seams with personality. This mellow four year old American Bulldog mix is everything you could ever want in a canine companion. She is house trained, crate trained, knows how to sit, and gets along with other dogs! She is currently residing in our offices and has been a dream. She even signals when she needs to go outside! She greets strangers as if she’s known them her whole life and will never fail to make you smile. Her favorite activities include napping, chewing bones, spending time with you, and being your best friend.
If you think Virginia is the perfect pup for you, please come meet her at the DCAS shelter! Her $40 adoption fee includes her spay, vaccinations, microchip, and more! For more information email email@example.com

LifeLine provides lifesaving solutions to end the killing of healthy and treatable animals in shelters, promotes animal welfare and works to prevent pet overpopulation in metro Atlanta. The organization also operates two low-cost spay/neuter clinics, which have performed 80,000 surgeries to date, and its own rehabilitative, no-kill shelter.
