    Residents in east Alabama are rounding up the Labor Day celebration at one of the Alabama's oldest courthouses. The courthouse located in Seale, Ala. is the third oldest in the state. This is the first fair since 2010 when the fair restarted, and it originated in 1980 to raise money to refurbish the old courthouse after it began to deteriorate.More >>
(WTVM) -

Six of the pets we showcased from Columbus Animal Care and Control last week were adopted or rescued by outside groups. One dog and one cat are still available, and their rescue is urgent.

However, Animal Control has vastly improved their euthanasia rate from 80% in 2010 to 32% for the first quarter of 2013.

"Our goal is to reach the point that no adoptable animal is ever put down in Muscogee County," said Mayor Teresa Tomlinson. "Every adoptable animal needs a chance to find a forever home."

Here is a look at today's pets that need your help.

Tag 368 is a female Domestic Short Haired cat with a very sweet-natured and kind personality. She is quiet and laid-back, sure to be an excellent addition to your home.

Tag 135 is also a female Domestic Short Haired cat with beautiful coloring. She is a reserved girl that loves to be around people. She will be a wonderful family pet.

Tag 295 is a male Chihuahua who is very scared at Animal Control. He is an incredibly affectionate and caring boy, who will certainly blossom when shown love and care.

Tag  145 is a male Chihuahua puppy that is very playful and loving. He is looking for the perfect home where he can grow old. Won't you give him a second chance?

The best way to continue reducing the euthanasia rate is to adopt a deserving pet from Columbus Animal Care and Control. For more information, visit 4910 Milgen Road, or call them at (706) 653-4512.
