Pets of the Week - April 23, 2009

Indigo is one year old Shar Pei/Labrador mix. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Indigo came to CCHS after being held as "evidence" in a cruelty/neglect case headed up by Animal Control. Indigo had been taken from situation where she spent day and night, tied to a cinder block, with no food, water, or shelter. Unbelievable as it may be, Indigo has continued to maintain a very sweet demeanor, but she has seemingly limitless amounts of energy. Indigo needs a home where she can run, play, and be the active dog that she now has become.....after having been so severely confined for her "puppyhood". For adoption information, please call Clayton County Humane at 770/471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
