Pets of the Week

Milan is a 4-month-old, lilac-point Himalayan mix. She has been spayed and vaccinations are current. Milan was found as a stray, only a few weeks old, and was turned over to the Clayton County Humane Society. She was frightened and withdrawn, but she is now starting to come around a bit. She will require a quiet home (no small children), and a family that will be patient with her as she learns to trust people. For adoption information call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.

So the big celebrity gets to be the hero, the sleazy pack of dogs with cameras around their necks the villains.
