Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish – a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family.
Throughout the month of August I will be featuring pets from local shelters and rescue groups who are hoping to celebrate the end of summer by finding their new forever home with their very own human family and a safe and secure place to sleep at night.
Today’s featured pets are Peachtree and See from LifeLine Animal Project in Avondale Estates. Here is their description from the LifeLine Facebook page:
Your heart will melt when you hear the story of the bonded pair we are featuring as Cats of the Week! This mother/daughter pair was part of a colony from Florida trapped during a TNR event. Mama ‘Peachtree’ is a gorgeous calico who is almost entirely blind. Her adoring tabby kitten we have aptly named ‘See,’ for she is the eyes and security for her Mama, guiding her around like a true seeing-eye-cat! They are both affectionate and gentle, and are utterly precious together.
Peachtree is still young, approximately 18 months, and her daughter See is 9 months. Both of these sweet ladies are spayed and vaccinated, and must be adopted together. Their adoption fee has been waived for the week and through next weekend. Come meet this pair at our Ponce location [3172 East Ponce de Leon Avenue, Scottdale, GA 30079] any day of the week between 8am-6pm – you are sure to fall in love!
