Pets available for adoption this week in Newton, Rockdale counties

Her name is Snowflake and she's panting like she'd welcome a little snow right now. Maybe in a few months, but regardless, she is one cool dog. A Spitz and only weighing in at about 20 pounds, she would make a great family dog. She is very sweet and friendly and is believed to be about 2 years old. She 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.
