Rockdale and Newton Counties' Pets of the Week for Nov. 28

This baby looks like he’s thinking, “If I can only sit here still enough, maybe the monsters won’t get me.” He’s an 8-week-old Beagle-mix who’s been named Rocky. He’ll no doubt grow into his name and become a rough and tumble little guy, ready to become an active part of any family. He’ll probably weigh around 30 pounds as an adult. 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.

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?

Mr. Puggles smiles for the camera and he’ll smile his way into the heart of any family who takes him on. A Pug-mix, he’s a beautiful red color and is an adult of undetermined age. He weighs a sturdy 25 pounds and has all the charm that’s inherent of the breed. He’s up-to-date on his shots and would make an ideal family pet. He’s up-to-date on his shots and 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.
