Pets of the Week

Victoria is a 2-year-old tortie domestic shorthair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Victoria was found as a stray, living in an apartment complex, eating out of trashcans. Upon coming into the shelter, she immediately befriended a Siamese cat named Sassy, and the two became inseparable. Then Sassy was adopted, and Victoria was left behind. Since that time Victoria has become sad and depressed. She needs to be in a home where she will feel special, somewhere that she can get individual attention that can't always be offered in a shelter environment. Victoria has a sweet temperament and a gentle nature. For more information call the Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.
