Pet of the Week: Junie

Rebecca Leftwich / The Newnan Times-Herald

Junie is a happy, loving little girl who is listed as a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix.

She has been at the Coweta County Animal Services Shelter since February, when she was picked up as a stray from Spear Circle.

Junie has severely docked ears and an intact tail. She is a short, chunky girl who loves to play and snuggle, and she always has a big smile and a great attitude.

As with many heartworm-positive dogs, Junie has been passed over by potential adopters at the shelter. She is looking for a family who understands that with proper treatment and care – which she is currently receiving from shelter workers – she can live a long and normal life, sharing her joy with those around her.

Adoptions are free for heartworm-positive dogs. You can ask to meet Junie, A044246 from Kennel A-19.

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, the first round of vaccines and an implanted microchip that helps identify the pet if it should ever be lost.

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 1-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Saturday. Animals up for adoption can be viewed www.24petconnect.com . For more information, call 770-254-3735.
