Pets of the Week - Feb. 14, 2008

Britt is a two and a half year old, Tortie/Tabby British Shorthair.  She has been spayed and fully vaccinated.  Britt was found at Animal Control, very pregnant and on the "kill list".  CCHS staffers knew that Britt and her babies needed to be saved; so she was rescued and sent to live at the CCHS shelter.  Britt is a very sweet girl, but she is timid and afraid of loud noises or sudden movement.  While at the shelter, poor Britt has remained in a cage because of the chaotic environment around her.   Because of this, Britt is likely going to do best in an "adult-only" home.  For more information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
