Goose and Juno are searching for new homes

Juno  Juno is 16-weeks old and is a long-legged, good-looking dog of unknown origins. He has a shiny black coat with white markings on his chest, so there's a definite possibility that there's a Lab in his background. He is very playful, super sweet and eager to please. He's up-to-date on vaccinations and ready to meet his new family. He 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 sad-looking little guy's name is Goose and he was turned in because of his owners' work schedule. A poodle-mix, he's chocolate and white with striking hazel-colored eyes. Goose is only about 4 months old and is already housebroken, so he's a smart little critter. He'll weigh about 15 pounds as an adult. He'll make an ideal companion and family pet and deserves a good home that will put a smile on his face. 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?
