Pet of the Week: Homer’s looking for a home!


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

Homer is a 1-year-old pointer/lab mix. He’s a laid-back, low- to medium-energy pet who craves human companionship, minds his manners and is good on the leash. Ruttkay described him as “a real gentleman!” 

Homer has the makings of a good reading, 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.  

Homer’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.
