Pets are special creatures that enrich our lives from the moment they enter our homes. From the very first wag of the tail to the last time they lay their heads in our laps, pets provide us with steadfast companionship and years of laughter. When you are thinking about getting a pet, consider adopting from your local animal shelter. Approximately 3-4 million shelter animals are adopted each year, and you can do your part to reduce overcrowding by giving a shelter pet a forever home. When your pet passes on after a life well-lived, you can honor your furry friend by visiting an Atlanta pet crematory. Hold a memorial to share fond memories of your pal, and your grieving will feel a little less heavy. Check out our Infographic to learn more about adopting a shelter animal and how to cope after your pet passes away. Please share with your fellow animal lovers!
