(Bonus) Pet of the Week: Joey’s looking for his forever home


CULLMAN – Cullman County Animal Shelter volunteer Donna Ruttkay has reported that Li'l Debbie, this week's official Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week, has been quickly adopted! With the seat now vacant, we're holding a “special election,” and Ruttkay introduces us to a new friend:

Joey is an approximately 1-year-old hound mix.  He’s a laid-back, low- to medium-energy pet who loves to be around people.  He wants to be part of whatever the humans around him are doing, but he behaves himself: he’s submissive and takes to his leash well.  He could have a good future as a companion, comfort or therapy dog.

Overall, Ruttkay describes Joey as “beautiful, loving” and “a real nice fellow.”

Animal shelter staff and volunteers work with their dogs to make sure they are accustomed to being around people, walking on a leash and practicing good behavior.  Several of the shelter’s dogs have even been “hired” to work as special needs service dogs.

Joey’s adoption fee is $90 which includes: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, neutering, microchip, free 30-day health insurance policy issued by 24PetWatch (with valid email only) and a free bag of food from Cullman Pet Depot (you must pay sales tax).

Please consider adopting to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.
