Pet of the Week: Make your life cooler with Snow!


CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay shares The Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Snow is an approximately 1-year-old Terrier mix, almost completely white, save for her black nose and one “eyebrow.” She’s a lively medium- to high-energy pet who is developing her leash skills, already has good spatial awareness and enjoys being around her people. 

Ruttkay said of Snow, “She’s so fun; her whole body sings with delight upon seeing you. She’s a happy soul who cherishes your company.” 

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

Snow’s adoption fee is $100 which includes DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, spaying, 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 Visit the shelter at 935 Convent Road NE.

Good news!

Ruttkay reported that former Pet of the Week Quincy has been adopted, and that several other POTW candidates have gotten snapped up before they could even be featured (That’s a good thing!). The shelter still has plenty of love to share, though, so look for a bonus pet later this week.
