Sweetwater Animal Control currently has a family of dogs available for adoption.
Available for adoption is a Yorkie mother and her four two-week-old puppies. The family has been at the shelter since the puppies were just a few days old, but would thrive better at a home, said Sweetwaterâ€™s animal control officer, Don Kite. The family would have to be adopted out all together since the puppies still need their mother.
Animals that are picked up are kept for a minimum of three days, but he tries to keep them from a week to 10 days.
Dogs and cats are available for adoption for a $15 fee and the cost of getting the pet vaccinated for rabies.
The pets are required to have their vaccination before they leave to their new homes.
For those interested in adopting a pet, call the Sweetwater Animal Shelter at 236-6139. If there is no answer, just leave a message and they will get back to you the same day or the next day.
