Pet of the Week: Laid-back Sally’s looking for her forever home


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

Sally is a 3 ½-year-old Australian Shepherd mix.  She’s a laid-back, low-energy pet who could make a great comfort, companion or therapy dog.  If you sit down, she'll put her head in your lap to get a little loving.

Ruttkay shared, “Shelter life has brought her out of her shell.” She seems to get along well with other dogs and loves human companionship.  Sally also enjoys spending time outside, and is at her most playful when she gets to play in the yard.

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.

Sally’s adoption fee is $90 which includes: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, spaying, 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.
