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.

Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
