Photo detail

This pudgy pup has been named Shaggy. He's only a 9-week-old baby who is very sweet and would love a new home where he can become part of the family. He's believed to be a Husky/terrier-mix and will weigh about 40 pounds when he is fully grown. He's up-to-date on all shots and worming and is ready to find his place in the world. 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.
