Adopting a dog is a wonderful experience on many levels. In addition to a cuddly companion, you get unconditional love and unwavering devotion. In most cases, you also get your own personal security detail.

As much as we love them, cats generally don't make the best travel companions. Your dog may happily bound into the back seat of your SUV and slobber in delight while his ears flap in the breeze, but your cat is more likely to dig her claws into the back of your neck and meow in terror the entire ride.

If you have a love for reptiles, and believe that people should show them respect in the wild, as well as respect our reptile family members, then the Georgia Reptile Society welcomes your membership.
