Pet of the Week: Help Remmy find his forever home


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay informed us that Peanut, a recent Pet of the Week, has been adopted; and that one of our canine clients, thanks to inter-agency cooperation between shelters and rescue services, has even found his forever home near Chicago!

Now, Ruttkay shares a new Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Remmy is Springer spaniel/setter mix who’s around a year and a half in age.  He’s a laid-back low energy pet, with a great personality about which Ruttkay told us there’s “none sweeter!”  He seeks human companionship and seems to be more secure when around people. For his folks, he’s submissive and behaves well on his leash.  He enjoys getting a bath, and has a hearty appetite

Remmy has the potential to be an emotional support, therapy, companion, or reading 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.  

Remmy’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 24 Pet Watch (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.
