Pet of the Week: Slick’s looking for his forever home


CULLMAN – Cullman County Animal Shelter volunteer Donna Ruttkay introduces The Cullman Tribune’s Pet of the Week:

Slick is a 6-month-old lab/terrier mix whose former owner is now working outside the country.  He was well cared for, a good-mannered pup who’s already housebroken. Around the shelter, he’s shown a great fondness for human companionship and play time, especially with his favorite ball.  He’s even made friends with Eleanor the shelter sheep. According to Ruttkay, “a little more time on his leash and he'll be a pro” at accompanying his human on a stroll around the park or neighborhood.

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.

Slick’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.
