Pets of the Week

Ling is a 1-year-old, Siamese mix. Ling was rescued from Animal Control. She was obviously pregnant, and delivered only one tiny baby just three days after rescue. Ling needs to spend about 2 more weeks with her baby, then she will be fully vetted and ready to find a new home. Applications are already being taken for Ling, in hopes of having a new family ready and waiting for her when her vet care is completed. She is a very sweet girl, and has a really affectionate disposition. Because of her baby, Ling is not being housed in the humane society shelter, so anyone interested in Ling should contact Robin at (770) 478-7531. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
