Pet of the Week: Davis

The Newnan Times-Herald

Davis is a friendly and laid-back brindle Staffordshire mix who has been at the Coweta Animal Services Shelter for almost a year.

Davis, who is estimated to be about 8 years old, was picked up as a stray from J.D. Walton Road Oct. 1, 2019.

Davis loves people and is good with other dogs, shelter workers say. He’s got a great temperament – he’s calm enough not to jump on you, but still has some energy. “He’s a really, really good dog – he’s been here way too long,” say shelter workers.

Davis is heartworm positive. The Newnan-Coweta Humane Society provides grants to cover all but the first $100 of heartworm treatment. Adoption fees for heartworm positive dogs are waived.

Potential adopters who have other dogs are invited to bring their pets to meet Davis, or other dogs, before they adopt them. Dogs brought into the shelter to meet adoptable dogs must have proof of rabies vaccination.

The Coweta County Animal Services Shelter is open for adoptions, but things are a little different because of COVID-19.

To enter the shelter, visitors must have their temperature taken, wear a mask or face covering, and sign a form attesting that they do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Everyone must also step into a disinfectant station for their shoes.

Only two people per household may enter, and no one under 18 is allowed to enter the shelter. As of this week, adopters can bring their own dogs to meet their potential new family members, as long as they bring proof of rabies vaccination.

The shelter is located at 91 Selt Road, Newnan. Shelter hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday. All animals are spayed or neutered and microchipped before adoption and have their first round of vaccinations.

Kittens or puppies who are too young for spay or neuter surgery must be brought back to the shelter for the surgery, which is included in the adoption fees.

Adoption fees vary. Please call 770-254-3735 for more information.
