Pets of the Week

Nigel is black and white domestic shorthair. He was born on March 12, 2005. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Nigel and his littermates were born on the counter at a local animal control, as their "caretaker" was signing paperwork to have the entire group destroyed. Luckily, a humane society volunteer was there to witness what was happening, and the little family was brought to Clayton County Humane Society. Nigel has been handraised by the staff at the shelter, and is a wonderful cat. He loves people and he totally enjoys the company of the other cats at the shelter. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
