Pet of the Week: Shelby

The Newnan Times-Herald

Shelby is a sweet Labrador retriever mix at the Coweta County Animal Services shelter.

Shelby's age wasn't indicated, but she's fairly young, with a distinct two-toned coat.

She was picked up as a stray from Roberts Road on April 2. Shelby has a lot of energy and loves to play fetch. She has a distinct personality, said shelter workers. When she first meets someone, she can be a bit stern and loud, but she calms down quickly. She's attentive with a sweet, childlike personality, shelter workers said.

Last week's Pet of the Week, Foghorn Leghorn, was adopted last week, as was his not-as-nice fellow rooster. shelby-collage.jpg?mtime=20210504185541#asset:61254:articlePhotoFull

Appointments no longer needed at animal shelter

The Coweta County Animal Services Shelter has significantly reduced its COVID-19 precautions, and appointments are no longer necessary for those wishing to come and look at animals up for adoption.

All visitors must still wear masks, have temperatures taken and sign an attestation that they don’t have any symptoms of COVID-19.

For the first time since the pandemic began, those under 18 will be allowed into the shelter, and there is no limit on the size of a family group coming to look at pets for adoption.

Before going to their new homes, adopted pets are spayed or neutered, and receive a microchip and their first round of vaccinations.
