Pets Brittany, Princess are looking for new homes

This little girl is only about 6 months old, but she's keen on finding the right home. She has one blue eye and one brown eye and is believed to have some Australian Cattle Dog in her ancestry, along with a healthy dose of Siberian Husky. Now known as Princess, she's probably weigh no more than 40 pounds as an adult and would make a great family pet. She's up-to-date on all shots and deorming and 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 lovely lady is aptly named Brittany. Believed to be a Cocker Spaniel-mix, there is doubtless some Brittany Spaniel in her lineage. Her white and tan coloring highlights her kinship to this breed. She weighs in at 15 pounds and could stand to put on a few pounds so she's looking for a owner that can keep her full and warm during the coming winter months. Believed to be about 2 years old, she'd make a lovely family pet. 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. - Staff photos by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith

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?
