Pet of the Week: Sonny the Cat

Pet of the Week: Sonny the Cat

Meet Sonny, a domestic short hair kitten!

The 10-week-old orange and white tabby currently hangs out at Homeless Animal Rescue & Placement Services (HARPS)  but he needs a home! He is house-trained.

About Sonny: 

Sonny is a sweet boy born to a feral mama during a bad storm. Rescuer has been handling the kittens since they were very young so they are quite used to people. They are 10 weeks old and now ready for a home of their own. For more info, please email Michele at michele@harpsinc.org. All photos listed are courtesy postings for individuals in need of assistance with animal placement.

Email HARPS at michele@harpsinc.org for more information.

Good Samaritans Come Through Once Again

Good Samaritans Come Through Once Again

Central Georgia’s Good Samaritans were out in force again last weekend, saving the life of a dog that was hit by a car on Log Cabin Road in Macon. The driver of the car kept on going while the dog writhed in the street. Other vehicles swerved to avoid the injured animal and also kept going.

But not everyone who passed the scene Sunday was uncaring. Two women turned around and came back, risking their own safety to dash into the busy street and rescue the young dog. They took him to the nearest vet, which was Banfield on Presidential Parkway inside PetSmart. While enroute, the call for help went out on Facebook, just as was done for Jack and Jill recently.

And again, animal lovers responded.

Macon Animal Control Shelter Shutting Down June 6 - Lives in Danger

Macon Animal Control Shelter Shutting Down June 6 - Lives in Danger

Macon Animal Control shelter has been fighting a losing battle against rats and roaches for years. On June 7, pest control experts will descend on the shelter and eradicate these pests.

There's just one problem: no one can be in the shelter when this happens. Not the staff and not the animals.

The shelter must be emptied by the end of the day June 6. Unfortunately, this means that any dog, puppy, cat or kitten not rescued or adopted by that time will be killed.

AC Pup, the shelter mascot, has issued a plea on his Facebook page: "Please help us! All of my Pound Pals must be out by June 6."

Acting director Van VanDeWalker and the shelter staff are working closely with area rescuers and donors to get the animals out, but more animals come in daily, so it's an ongoing battle. The animals need the public's help now more than ever.

Shelter Picks

You need a puppy in your life. A sweet, bouncy, mischievous puppy with liquid brown eyes that look at you with love and complete trust. That's exactly what you need, and, lucky you, Macon Animal Control has several to choose from this week.

While the arguing goes on among humans over the conditions at the rundown animal control shelter, the kennels and cat cages filled up, as usual.
