If you could increase your quality of life, would you? Would you like to add extra years to your life? Dedicating just 30 minutes a day to exercise can do this for you and more. The National Institute on Aging states, “If exercise could be packed into a pill, it would be the single most widely prescribed and beneficial medicine in the nation.” Many of us wish exercise could be packaged in a pill form.

Correlation between domestic violence and pet abuse

Autrey, Terrie 2014.jpg

Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am an animal lover. We have always had our own dogs, and since we live out in the country, we often find stray pups. A few years ago, I counted heads around our house, and we had 13 dogs at one time! There were our own (two labs and a pit bull), my daughter’s cocker, my sister’s dachshund, and our house guest’s Yorkie, plus a litter of wild puppies that my husband had found! We are currently down to four dogs — three labs and a boxer rescue from the Monroe Humane Society.

Mrs. Wiggins is a beautiful golden-colored lady. She is about 2 1/2 years old and has been with 4 Paws about two years. She had a litter of puppies when she first came and that slowed her adoption up for a few months, but she has still not found her forever home. A dog that loves attention, she has a beauty mark by her eye, like a movie star. She gets along with all the dogs. Adoption fees are $65. Call 251-DOGS for more information. See all the animals up for adoption at the 4Paws shelter, located at 290 Rodeo Road, just south of Tech Farm Road. The office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
