Photo detail

This sweet little guy has been named Dudley Do Right and he's hoping somebody will "do right" by him and give him a new home. A long-haired Dachshund, he was found in the roadway mournfully sitting beside another Dachshund who had been killed by a car. He's fully grown, probably between 1 and 2-years-old and has had his shots and been wormed. He's set to find a new life and a new lap to sit on. 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. - Staff photos by Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
