ADOPT A PET: Meet Magic

 

MARIETTA, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a cool purr or a comforting meow adopt a kitten from your local pet shelter. 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.

Carmel Elementary First Graders Make Homemade Toys for Dogs

Carmel Elementary First Graders Make Homemade Toys for Dogs

 

Carmel Elementary School is a busy place and Mrs. Emanuel's class is no exception.  As part of  Carmel's nationally recognized Learn and Serve program, Mrs. Emanuel’s class recently made homemade dog tug toys to be given to the Cherokee County Humane Society  These toys were made with lots of little hands and lots of big hearts and will bring lots of fun for many dogs!  The students took assorted colored strips of fleece and braided them together to create the tug toys.

Carmel Elementary is the State School of Character for 2011-2013, an honor which the students and staff are very proud.  Assistant Principal Dr. Green oversees the character education and said, “We are so proud of our 1st graders.  This project is especially meaningful since they made the toys themselves and really put their hearts and minds into it.  Way to go, Colts!”

New Year, New Tricks; Get Your Dog Schooled at PetSmart

Atlanta - If your list of resolutions includes finally getting Fluffy to stop chewing on the couch, peeing on the carpet or barking at the ceiling fan, then some training classes may be the solution.

But can you teach an old dog new tricks?

“Yes,” says Jason Smith, operations manager at PetSmart’s Midtown location. “You always can teach an older dog something new, but sometimes it takes a little longer depending on how stubborn the dog is. You may have to start at the beginning like it’s a new puppy, but yes you can train it.”
