Photo detail

This itsy-bitty doggie is named Poco. A Chihuahua, he’s between 1 and 2 years old and is having a hard time adjusting to the noisy shelter with all the strange animals and people around. He needs a quiet family with just adults or a family with older children. After all, he only weighs 8 pounds and it’s a big, bad world out there. 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.
