Pet of the Week: Lawson

The Newnan Times-Herald

Lawson is a friendly and loving lab mix who has been at the Coweta Animal Services Shelter since Oct. 12 when he was picked up as a stray on Welcome Road. Lawson loves people and likes other dogs – but doesn't like it when other smaller dogs jump up on him, especially on his back, according to shelter workers. When that happens, he'll just ignore them. He's not a high energy dog, but loves to be petted and loves to sniff. Lawson has a few health issues. He's heartworm positive and has a slight limp, which is likely age related. He has some dental issues with tooth decay and a cyst on his right eye. But he's a sweet and loving dog who needs a home.

All adoptions are $25

The Coweta County Animal Services Shelter is full of dogs and cats who need loving homes. All adoptions are a flat rate of $25. That fee includes spay or neuter surgery, an implanted microchip that helps the pet be identified if it should ever be lost, and the first round of vaccines. Adoptions are free for those 65 and up, county employees and military veterans, and for heartworm positive dogs. Potential adopters who are renters must bring a letter from their landlord verifying that they can keep a pet at their home. Adopters who already have dogs can bring their dogs to the shelter to meet with potential new family members, but must bring proof of rabies vaccination. Coweta Animal Services is located at 91 Selt Road in Newnan. Adoption hours are 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Animals up for adoption can be viewed on PetHarbor.com . For more information call 770-254-3735.
