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. As we start the new year and through the month of February, I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.
Today’s featured pet is Champ from DeKalb County Animal Services. Champ is a three year old male Terrier, American Staffordshire/Mix. Here is more about Champ from the LifeLine Animal Project Facebook page:
STAFF PICK! Quinton, a staff member at the DeKalb Shelter, adores sweet Champ! Quinton loves Champ for his great personality, good manners, and love for all people. He says that Champ is just an all around great dog who deserves to be in a loving home. Champ is great with other dogs and probably wouldn’t mind having a doggie housemate in his new home. Come meet Champ soon at the DeKalb shelter! Champ’s adoption fee is only $14 this month! It includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip, and more! Please email email@example.com for more info on this sweetie.
