Bring home your next furry friend at a virtual pet adoption

With more people adopting and fostering pets during the current health crisis, it's important to know what NOT to give your dog.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is hosting a weekly virtual pet adoption event

You won’t be able to meet your new pet in person, but an Alpharetta animal rescue service is still working to get cats and dogs into their forever homes.

Angels Among Us Pet Rescue is hosting a virtual pet adoption this weekend and will continue to do so every Saturday until further notice.

The Alpharetta nonprofit will put on the online event Saturday, Jan. 8 from 11 a.m. to noon, according to the Facebook event page.

Interested adopters can visit the website to view a list of more than 100 adoptable dogs and cats. They can also fill out an adoption application, which will be good for an entire year.

A volunteer-based organization, AAUPR is devoted to saving dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in the state. The nonprofit functions through a network of foster homes in the metro Atlanta area.

Recently, AAUPR put out a call for volunteers who can handle a variety of duties for the organization.
