Pippa, Sammy are eager for new homes

This petit little bit of a Chihuahua is named Pippa and is staring off in the distance wondering why her new owners are taking so long to come and get her. She was found as a stray and is believed to be about 2 years old. She only weighs 4 pounds and would fit in nicely with an all adult household or a family with older children. 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.

This domestic short hair kitty named Sammy looks as though he's wondering how he wound up in a cage at an animal shelter. He'd prefer to be in a nice, friendly home and is hoping someone will adopt him soon. He's ready to go as he's up-to-date on his shots, has been neutered and is litter trained. He was found running free in a neighborhood and a kindly soul brought him to the shelter where perhaps he can get a new start on life. He's very sweet, playful and loving. He's estimated to be between 2 and 3 years old and weighs around 10 pounds. Sammy 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.

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?
