Pet of the Week: Grow some love with Pumpkin Seed!


CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman County Animal Shelter volunteer Donna Ruttkay introduces The Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week.

Pumpkin Seed is a 1-year-old terrier mix.  She’s a laid-back, low- to medium-energy pet who’s savvy on her leash and likes to stay close to her human.  She has a playful side- Ruttkay called her a “natural entertainer”- and enjoys water, especially playing in the shelter’s kiddie pool on hot afternoons.  Described as an “unassuming girl,” she has the makings of a good companion, therapy or emotional support 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.

Pumpkin Seed’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.
