Materialistic things have little importance - Jaya Franklin

One thing that I've noticed, especially during the summer, is a lot people are losing their homes. Not due to foreclosures, but because of house fires.

Pets of the Week - June 26, 2008

Flann is a 6 year old red miniature Dachshund.  He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current.  When Flann was rescued from Animal Control, he was suffering from heartworms and extremely advanced dental disease.  He had also not yet been neutered.  CCHS had Flann totally vetted, and it was assumed that he would be available for adoption as soon as his heartworm treatment could be completed.  Then......his former "owners" showed up and wanted to reclaim him.  After totally ignoring his health and well-being, they still felt he should be returned to them.  Unfortunately for them, but luckily for Flann, CCHS did not think that Flann should go back to his former neglectful life.  Flann is now looking for a new, permanent home where he will be loved and cared for throughout the rest of his life.  For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770/471-9436.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
