Pet of the Week: Wilma

The Newnan Times-Herald

Wilma is a dramatic looking tortoiseshell cat who has been at the Coweta Animal Services shelter since Nov. 15. Wilma was picked up as a stray from Wilson Circle, and is approximately 2 years old. Wilma is a sweetheart who loves attention, said shelter workers, but can be picky about that attention and wants it on her own terms. She knows what she wants, said shelter workers, and has a unique personality. Wilma had some hair loss, likely stress and diet related, when she arrived at the shelter, but there's no signs of that now. But even when she first came in, she was always affectionate, and that's not always the case when stray cats first arrive at the shelter. wilma-collage.jpg?mtime=20220111212955#asset:69713:articlePhotoFull

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.
