She has been Coggins tested. Sealed bids beginning at $200 are being accepted through noon on Feb. 1 at the 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.
