There's nothing wrong with this guy that a shave and a haircut won't fix.Though he could do with a little grooming, Joey is still putting his best foot forward in the hopes someone is looking for a friendly and sweet furry buddy. A terrier-mix, he's only 3 years old and weighs a mere 15 pounds. 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 photo by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
Pets available for adoption this week in Newton, Rockdale counties
Questions to ask before adopting a pet:
-- Can I make a long-term commitment to this pet?
-- Will I be able to spend enough time with a new pet?
-- Am I prepared for the cost a new pet will bring?
-- Which pet is right for my home and my family?
