Pets of the Week

Bonsai is a one year old, chocolate point Siamese. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Bonsai's time had run out at Animal Control when the humane society found this beautiful boy. He is a sleek, gorgeous example of the Siamese breed. He is extremely quiet and mild mannered, and loves being around people. He does not mingle with other cats at the shelter, but he does tolerate their presence with no problem. For more information about how to adopt Bonsai, please call Clayton County Humane Society (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
