Celebrate with us for the month of October by visiting our dogs and adopting a new best friend.
A newly adopted dog can add so much to your life, whether or not you are looking for an exercise buddy, a companion, a best friend for your child or simply a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work. At Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption we have a new buddy waiting for their forever home who may be just perfect for you!
If you’re thinking about bringing an adopted dog into your family, here are some things to consider:
- Like children, dogs are completely dependent on their owners for all their needs — food, water, medical attention, exercise, shelter and, most important, companionship. But unlike children, dogs will never learn to pour themselves a drink, fix breakfast or clean up after themselves. Opening your home to a dog can be highly rewarding, as long as you understand and accept the daily responsibilities and routines that come with owning a dog.
- The qualities and personality you want in a dog are more important than size and appearance. For example, an older poodle mix might do better than an energetic terrier in an apartment. Very often the pet that has the characteristics you’re looking for will come in an unexpected package.
Check out all of our dogs and see if you can find your new best friend!
When you adopt, please mention you saw this post on our site and you will receive a free APRA bandana for your new friend. They come in several different colors and are sure to make a great fashion statement for your newly adopted dog!
