Photo detail

This baby looks like he’s thinking, “If I can only sit here still enough, maybe the monsters won’t get me.” He’s an 8-week-old Beagle-mix who’s been named Rocky. He’ll no doubt grow into his name and become a rough and tumble little guy, ready to become an active part of any family. He’ll probably weigh around 30 pounds as an adult. 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.
