CULLMAN, Ala. – For those of you whose nerves might be a bit frayed from the excitement of Election Day and its aftermath, COVID-19 and whatever else 2020 has thrown at you, the Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay offers a little relaxing calm with her recommendation for The Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Josie is a 1-year-old Terrier mix. She’s a really laid-back, low-energy pet described by Ruttkay as an “unassuming and gentle girl.” She has good spatial awareness, is skilled on her leash and cherishes human company.  

Ruttkay says Josie is “just a swell kid!” 

Josie has the makings of a good therapy, companion or reading dog.

Josie’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.
