LolaPet Pick

My name is Lola, and I am looking for a new home. A nice lady got me out of the traffic on a busy road, and then she tried to find my owners, but they never came looking for me. I am mostly Chihuahua, weigh about 12 pounds and am about one year old, according to the doctor that looked me over. I had a lot of fleas when the nice lady got me, but they’re all gone now. I am ready for adoption, so send in your application now, so you can come get me really soon.

Atlanta Pet Rescue is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information about Atlanta Pet Rescue or how to adopt Lola or any of our 80-plus dogs, cats, puppies and kittens looking for homes, visit
