Transitioning into Fall

From hot to not.

Transitioning into fall. A change of season means a change of doing. School is in. The temperature is slighty cooling... making headway into pumpkin pumpkin and more pumpkin, and fun fall activities. A segway into winter. So enjoy the outdoors and the fresh fall air! Below are some ways to do that and some more updates on the Hug Box!

JuJu Rescue DogJuJu is a Maltese/Poodle mix (Standard) who is 5 years and 7 months old. He is neutered and current on vaccines. JuJu loves his walks! He is a busy fella… always on the go! Not a lap dog… he enjoys people but is “on the go!” Probably not a good fit for small children. Teens and up. Rides well in the car and is relearning his manners at the groomer. (He was an owner surrender.)  CLICK HERE to adopt JuJu.

Be sure to checkout your local rescues to adopt your dog or cat. CLICK HERE for more details for local adoption in Newnan, Georgia.
