Sweetwater Animal Control currently has three dogs available for adoption.
One of the adoptable pets is a white female labrador mix puppy. Another of the adoptable pets is a brown male terrier mix (shown). Another of the adoptable pets is a brown male chihuahua.
According to Sweetwater's new animal control officer, Don Kite, 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. "I like to give these animals a chance and would rather have someone adopt them than to have to put them down."
