Wolfie is a domestic medium hair and a “must see in person” kind of cat. He has the most unusual gray markings on his hind end and long silky hair that seems to float around his whole body. Wolfie is a typical playful kitten who will make a wonderful pet.

Sally is a two-year-old, 9.5-pound Pekingese mix who came to Atlanta Pet Rescue all the way from Alabama. Sally is one of more than 70 dogs rescued from a puppy mill. She is one of the most outgoing of the bunch. She is quick to jump into any waiting lap and eagerly seeks out attention. Unfortunately, Sally did not receive good food or proper dental care. As a result, she needed a dental cleaning along with her routine spay surgery, vaccinations, testing and parasite treatments.

Atlanta Pet Rescue is open Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information about Atlanta Pet Rescue or how to adopt Wolfie, Sally or any of the 80-plus dogs, cats, puppies and kittens looking for homes, visit www.atlantapetrescue.org.
