Pet of the Week: Need a sweet treat? Try a Jelly Bean!


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

Jelly Bean is a shepherd/hound mix just younger than a year old.  He’s a medium-energy pup who will be active without running you ragged.  He’s great on a leash and cherishes human company and could make a good companion or 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.

Jelly Bean’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.
