Photo detail

This lovely lady needs security and love to bring her out of her shell. Ricki is a 4-year-old Dachshund. She has been vaccinated and wormed and weighs about 12 pounds. Ricki is friendly, but can be a bit timid. She would be happiest in a home with adults or a family with teenage children. Ricki can be adopted at the 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. (Special photo)
