(Bonus) Pet of the Week: Refresh yourself with a Sprite! 

Also: shelter volunteers needed


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter is getting full, so Donna Ruttkay shares a bonus Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Sprite is a 4.5-year-old terrier mix. Described as an “animated fellow,” he’s a medium-energy pet who loves human company. He’s great on the leash and is developing good spatial awareness.

Sprite’s sister Frannie was adopted as a therapy dog, and he seems to be a good candidate for the same job, or as a companion or walking/hiking dog.

Sprite’s adoption fee is $100 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).

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 canine friends have even been “hired” to work as therapy and special needs service dogs.  

Please consider adopting, to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.

The shelter is also in need of volunteers to help with the animals. If you have a heart for pets and a little spare time, please consider helping out.

Contact the Cullman County Animal Shelter at 256-734-5448 or cullmancountyanimalshelter@gmail.com. Visit the shelter at 935 Convent Road NE.
