(Bonus) Pet of the Week: Gen Flynn is looking for his best friend


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay shared some good news this week:

“Many people in the community have located their lost dogs here at the shelter! Melts your heart when you see mom, dad reunited with their companion dog.”

Ruttkay also reported several recent adoptions, including Tribune Pets of the Week, one of whom has taken a job as an autism therapy dog. There is still love to go around at the shelter, though, so here’s a bonus Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:   

Gen Flynn is a 1.5-year-old Plott Hound. He’s an active, but not hyper, medium-energy pet who demonstrates high intelligence and good spatial awareness. He enjoys his human companions and comes when you call him. He has simple tastes and enjoys a good milk bone.

Gen Flynn has the makings of a good companion, therapy or hiking dog.

Gen Flynn’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.
