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

Sierra is a four and a half year old blue cream tortie, domestic shorthair.  Sierra has been spayed and all vaccinations are current.  Sierra was taken to Animal Control after her family had been evicted from their home.  Hopes that her family would come to reclaim her quickly faded as the days passed by.  Sierra is a stunning and unusual cat, and she caught the eye of a CCHS staffer, and was quickly whisked away to the CCHS shelter.  That was several years ago, and Sierra still sits at the CCHS shelter.....waiting for a real home and family.  She is friendly and outgoing, and she does well with other cats.  For more information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.  Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org  to see other animals available for adoption.
