Perry is special Pet of the Week this week. He is a pygmy goat who is just under 1 year old, alothough he is fully grown at 20 pounds. Perry is a “wether,” which means he has been castrated. He is very friendly and would make a great pet at the right home. The Newton County Animal Shelter, located at 210 Lower River Road in Covington, is taking sealed bids with a minimum bid of $50 until noon on Friday, April 11. For more information, contact Newton County Animal Control at 770-786-9514. 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. Anyone who has lost a pet is urged to go to the center and bring a photo of the missing animal. (Special photo)
