Pet of the Week: Charlene is looking for her forever home


CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman County Animal Shelter volunteer Donna Ruttkay shares The Cullman Tribune’s Pet of the Week:

Charlene is a 1-year-old hound mix.  She’s a laid-back, low- to medium-energy pet with what Ruttkay describes as “an abundance of manners.”  She’s developing good habits on her leash: she likes to explore, but enjoys staying close to her human.  She’s got the makings of a therapy, companion, emotional support or even outdoor recreation walking/hiking dog.

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 therapy and special needs service dogs.

Charlene’s adoption fee is $90 which includes the following: 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.
