Pets of the Week - June 19, 2008

Angelina is a three year old domestic medium-hair, cream tabby.   She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current.  Angelina was in Animal Control when she began labor with her kittens.  Realizing that Angelina  should not give birth at Animal Control, an Animal Control staffer called CCHS and requested that we come and help this little mom and her babies.  Very shortly after that phone call, Angelina was resting comfortably, in a clean, soft bed at the CCHS shelter.  Less than 24 hours later, Angelina's precious babies were born.  Angelina is fully recovered from her pregnancy and delivery, and is patiently waiting for someone to come and take her home.  She is a very sweet little lady, and she really enjoys human attention.  For more information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
