(Bonus) Pet of the Week: Make room for Big Red!


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter has a few extra opportunities for love, so Donna Ruttkay shares a bonus Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Big Red is a Redbone Hound who’s a little less than 2 years old. He’s a laid-back, low- to medium-energy pet who enjoys walking on a leash and has good spatial awareness. This “fantastically large, smooth fellow,” as he is called, is a little apprehensive about walking on shiny floors, small rugs and such, but he responds well to human encouragement. 

Big Red has the makings of a good reading, hiking or therapy dog.

Big Red’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.

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