Casper is a 9 year old, solid white Domestic Medium-hair. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Casper has been at the Humane Society shelter for nearly 6 years! He was removed from a horribly abusive home, where he had been so physically abused that he suffered severe brain damage and blindness. Casper is a very quiet, solitary cat who enjoys sleeping by the shelter window. In spite of his "handicapped" condition, he is able to move about freely, avoid obstacles, finds his food and water bowls, and uses his litter box. He is a very low-maintenance cat. Over the years, he has developed diabetes, but does not require daily injections. His diabetes is regulated with daily eyedrops, which he is accustomed to and willingly allows to be administered. Casper is accustomed to having dogs and cats around him, and simply pays them no attention. Though all his needs are being met, the Humane Society feels that Casper would be much happier in a real home, and is searching for just the right people to give this pitiful little boy another chance at life. Due to his condition, a home with no small children is preferred. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.

Lady is 5 - 6 year old Samoyed. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Lady was removed from an extremely neglectful home, and came to live at the Humane Society shelter, where she could recover and learn how to be a happy dog. In her former home, Lady had been allowed to balloon to nearly 120 pounds, which is extremely overweight and dangerous for a Samoyed. She lived chained outside, and never knew human companionship or what it was to run and chase a ball. But all that has changed now, and Lady is well on her way to losing the excess weight (goal weight for Lady is 50-60 pounds), and learning what it means to be loved. Common to the Samoyed breed, Lady is extremely affectionate and loving, and she adores children. She gets along very well with other dogs and cats, and since coming to the shelter, she is now housebroken. Lady lived a horrible life, for nearly 5 years, and now, Clayton County Humane Society is looking for a very special home for her. She will need a home who can provide lot's of human companionship, and who will be willing to continue to work towards Lady's goal weight. All inquiries about Lady should be directed to Robin at 770/478-7531.
