junoJuno is a one and a half year old Cattle Dog who weighs 35 pounds. She was rescued from an outlying animal control facility where she had little chance of being adopted. Juno is a bit shy, as she’s gone through a lot of changes. We can tell that she recently had a litter of pups, but the person who turned her in at animal control said they found her by herself and with no trace of pups in sight. Juno is a very intelligent and agile dog who would definitely benefit from a fenced yard. She would probably do best as an only dog or with one or two other polite canine companions. This charming girl is sure to make a great family pet.

HappyHappy is a charming six and a half year old long-haired cat who came to Atlanta Pet Rescue in search of a loving adult only home where he will be loved and admired. Happy has been very friendly with the staff and even tolerated our “intake procedure” with dignity and grace. Happy, however, does not like dogs and is not afraid to share his dislike with anyone who gets in his way. Happy would like to be the king of his castle and receive the pampering appropriately suited for royalty.
