ADOPT A PET: Meet Odie

ADOPT A PET: Meet Odie

Everyone knows that smaller dogs display in attitude what they lack in size, and Oddie is living proof.

In a truly heartwarming story, Oddie's story is quite unique. He was found running loose on I-85 where a woman stopped traffic to pick him up. His pregnant girlfriend was hit by a car and Oddie never left her side. She lost the puppies but survived and is now recovering in a foster home.

Odie is a very handsome 2 yrs old Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshund mix who is housebroken and ready to go to a forever home. He is a little shy at first, but if you pick him up, he snuggles right into your arms. He is going to make a terrific family pet.

5K to help save homeless animals

5K to help save homeless animals

SUWANEE, Ga. -- The Georgia SPCA will hold a 5K "Run for the Rescues" race this weekend to help save homeless pets.

The race will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Mar. 24 and will be held at the Suwanee Town Center Park in the heart of the city. Runners can even bring their dogs to participate with them.

There is still plenty of time to register for the race; the cost is $25, which includes a T-shirt (while supplies last) and bandanas for the dogs who run.

For those who decide not to run, there will still be plenty of activities for the whole family -- on-site pet adoptions and $25 micro-chipping, vendors and more.

Last year's Run for the Rescues raised more than $14,000, and organizers hope to rake in even more cash for homeless animals this year.

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 but adopting a companion for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.
