Happy Ending For Dog For The Day Socks

As part of Fulton County Animal Services' Dog for the Day program, Socks hung out with the team from On Second Thought and other GPB staffers. As a result she was adopted by GPB staffer Lauren Anderson and her boyfriend Alex. They renamed her Moxie. (Photo courtesy Jessica Metzger, On Second Thought producer)

Back in June, the team from our radio show On Second Thought played host to Socks, as part of Fulton County Animal Services new Dog for the Day program.

It’s a nifty concept. People give dogs a break from the shelter environment by taking them out for 24 hours. The dogs wear a visible “adopt me” vest so others know they are looking for homes.

The dogs can go to the park, a person’s house or in our case visit GPB’s pet friendly headquarters.

Socks had a wonderful time mixing and mingling with GPB staff. As a result, one of our employees, Creative Services Manager Lauren Anderson and her boyfriend Alex adopted Socks. They also gave her a new name: Moxie.
