Pet of the Week

Ready to adopt a cat? This cat has been in an animal control facility since late March.

A weekly feature on Dunwoody Patch spotlights an animal that's ready to be adopted into a loving home.

So far, we've focused on dogs that have been rescued and are being fostered, mostly in Dunwoody. This week, we're mixing it up a little bit - for cat lovers.

The cat that's ready for adoption has only a number, not a name. He was taken into a local animal control shelter on March 24.

This cat is described as sweet and friendly. He's a domestic, short-haired cat, that's been neutered and is up to date on shots. The cat has green eyes with an orange, red and white coat.

You can see more photos of the cat, number 47651, on a website of an organization called Mercy For Georgia's Homeless Pets.

The organization has been rescuing most of the pets for adoption from a high-kill, rural animal control facility in Georgia.

If you would like to adopt, foster or donate to this organization, contact Hannah Wildner at hmwildner@comcast.net or (770) 451-3809 for more information.

Also, for more information on the problem of pet overpopulation check out SPOT, an acronym for an organization called Stopping Pet Overpopulation Together.

Its website has more information on statistics for pet adoption for animal control facilities in the Atlanta metro area.
