Willie and Dixie are ready for new homes

Dixie is ready to prove blondes really do have more fun as she waits expectantly for her new family. A Yellow Lab-mix, she's beautifully colored with white toes, a pinkish-tan nose and golden eyes. Her coat is silky soft and luxuriant. She's only 12 weeks old and is current on shots and worming. A true treasure for some lucky family! She 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. The phone number is 770-278-8403.

This sturdy little black and brown Border Terrier-mix is confident he'll soon be finding a good home because he knows what a great family pet he'll make. He's been named Willie and is only 3 months old and ready to be trained to fit into any welcoming family. He's had his shots, been wormed, and will probably weigh about 30 pounds when fully grown. 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?
