Pets of the Week

Victoria is a 3 year old, tortie domestic shorthair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Victoria was living as a stray and eating out of garbage cans prior to coming to Clayton County Humane Society. She is a very sweet, gentle cat. She likes to find quiet, out-of-the-way places, where she tends to nap her days away. She has been at CCHS for several years, so the Humane Society is very anxious to find a permanent, loving home for Victoria. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770)471-9436 or visit to see other animals available for adoption.

She starts to tell us about being in the hospital and thank goodness she is OK now. But that the hospital stay made her and Vince start thinking about health care coverage. Thank goodness, she had XYZ insurance because it provided the protection she needed. She then launched into this full-blown plug for the insurance company.
