Pets available for adoption this week in Rockdale , Newton counties

If you're partial to chocolate with a dollop of creme, Remmie is just the dog you need as there are no calories involved. He's a Lab/Pointer-mix and is a perfect family pet. Believed to be 4 to 5 years old, he's up-to-date on all his shots and weighs about 50 pounds. He would love to go home with a new owner and he'd be sure to sweeten their days. He can be rescued and adopted at Rockdale County Animal Care and Control Shelter at 1506 Rockbridge Road in Conyers. At the Rockdale shelter adoption fees for dogs are $30 and $20 for cats. Spaying or neutering is required for adoption. The shelter is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. The phone number is 770-278-8403.

We could all use some Snow to give us some relief from this July heat wave and here he is. This Great Pyrenees male, approximately 10 to 12 months old, is named Snow and is considered to be "a gentle giant." He's friendly with other dogs and could use some good nutrition to complete his growth. He will require a little attention to his grooming and then he'll be a beautiful canine. A good family dog, he can be rescued and adopted at Newton County Animal Shelter, located at 210 Lower River Road in Covington. The shelter usually has between 20 to 30 dogs and an equal number of cats eligible for adoption. The adoption fee for a dog or puppy is $25 and $10 for a cat or kitten. Spaying/neutering is mandatory for all animals. The shelter is open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. The phone number is 770-786-9514. Anyone who has lost a pet is urged to go to the center and bring a photo of the missing animal.- Staff photos by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
