The Cobb County Animal Services shelter is going through a crisis of overpopulation, in part because of an increase in the number of people who have turned their pets in to the shelter. If you’re committed to adopting a new feline or canine family member, now is an excellent time to do it. Just make certain you are committed to taking care of the new furry family member for the long haul.
The Cobb County Courier’s Dog of the Day, selected from the Cobb Animal Shelter website, is a large-sized male red/white hound.
The following information on this potential family member is copied and pasted from the Animal Shelters website. To see the original text visit this link to the Animal Shelter Catalog.
Remember, in adopting a pet you are bringing a new family member into your household, so only do it if you are looking for a forever canine partner.
