Pets of the Week - Oct. 8, 2009

Bonnie is a 3 and a half year old black and white tuxedo, domestic shorthair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Bonnie was living as a stray when she was hit by a car, resulting in a broken pelvis. Luckily, she was discovered by a "good Samaritan" and quickly turned over to Clayton County Humane Society. Now fully healed and perfectly healthy, Bonnie is looking for a real home and family. As is so often the case, Bonnie is most often overlooked by prospective adopters, simply because she is black and white. She is a very sweet cat, and she gets along well with the other cats living at the CCHS shelter. For more information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
