Saving a slice of history for all to savor - Bob Paslay

I was raised in a mid-size Southern town called Spartanburg in South Carolina. We boast of Marshall Tucker, Marshall Chapman and textile magnate Roger Milliken.

Pets of the Week

Josie is a one-year-old, tortie domestic medium-hair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Josie was originally abandoned at the humane society shelter, left in a box at the front door. She was adopted very quickly and went into a home with another cat already living there. After just a few months, Josie's new mom returned Josie because the other cat was refusing to accept Josie. Josie is a very friendly cat, and has done well with other cats living at the humane society. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
