Charlie and Binx would like to find new homes

Charlie is one of those gorgeous blond guys that can make your heart go pitter-patter and he's just longing to go home with the first friendly face that asks him. A terrier-mix he's about 10 months old and would make an ideal family pet. He weighs about 15 pounds and has already been neutered. He's up-to-date on worming and shots. 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.
