Pet of the Week: Lawson


Lawson is a friendly and loving lab mix who has been at the Coweta Animal Services Shelter since October 12th when he was picked up as a stray on Welcome Road. Lawson loves people and other dogs – but doesn’t like other smaller dogs jumping on him, especially his back, according to the shelter staff. When that happens, he’ll just ignore her. He’s not an energetic dog, but he loves to be petted and sniffed. Lawson has several health problems. He is heartworm positive and has a slight limp, which is likely due to age. He has some dental problems with tooth decay and a cyst on his right eye. But he is a cute and loving dog who needs a home.

The Coweta County Animal Services Shelter is full of dogs and cats in need of loving homes. All adoptions are flat-rate for $ 25. This fee includes neutering or neutering surgery, an implanted microchip to help identify the pet in case it is ever lost, and the first round of vaccination. Adoption is free for people 65 and over, district employees, and military veterans, and heartworm-positive dogs. Prospective adoptive tenants must bring a letter from their landlord confirming that they can have a pet in their home. Adopted who already own dogs can bring their dogs to the shelter to meet potential new family members, but must bring proof of rabies vaccination. Coweta Animal Services is located at 91 Selt Road in Newnan. The adoption times are from Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. Animals released for adoption can be viewed at .
