Pets of the Week - Feb. 5, 2009

These sweet little girls are black and white domestic shorthairs, and they were born in October, 2008. Their mom was a stray who wandered under the porch of the home of CCHS supporters to deliver here babies. Once the babies were discovered, they were moved into the house until they could be weaned from their mom and turned over to CCHS. As tiny babies, these girls were handled a great deal and became very loving, friendly girls as a result of their early days with such very attentive people. Unfortunately, black and white cats are frequently overlooked by potential adopters, and Lucy and Ethel are at risk to grow up at the shelter, never again experiencing a loving home and family, such as the one they had as babies. If you would like to make a real difference in the lives of these two very sweet cats, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. It is NOT required that Lucy and Ethel be adopted together, however, they are very attached to each other and a "double adoption" would be the ideal happy ending. There is a special adoption rate in place for anyone who adopts the two of them together. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.

Tobey is a one year old Pomeranian. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Tobey was surrendered when his former family could no longer care for him. This little guy is cute as a button and has a really sweet personality, but he is definitely not the dog for a "first time" dog guardian. He is very high energy and his long hair will require regular grooming, so someone with dog experience will be needed for this little one. For adoption information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770/471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
