Pets of the Week - July 17, 2008

Tara is a one and a half year old Shepherd mix.  She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current.  Tara was hit by a car and then taken to Animal Control.  She was seriously injured and Animal Control could not offer her any veterinary care.  Clayton County Humane was contacted and asked to help this special girl.  Veterinary care was sought immediately, and efforts were made to save her leg, but it could not be saved.  Tara's leg was amputated, but she has fully recovered and seems to suffer no ill effects from the surgery.  She is active and playful, and does just as well as any  other dog with four legs.  She is loving and friendly, and does well with people.  She does not like other dogs, so she should likely be an "only pet".  For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770/471-9436.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
