CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter has love to spare these days, so Donna Ruttkay shares a bonus Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week: 

Gracie is a Terrier mix with a lively-but-not-crazy, mediumenergy level. She’s great on her leash, likes to stay close to her people when walking and takes directions well. Please be aware that she does not seem to be a big fan of our feline friends.  

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

Gracie’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 them at 935 Convent Road NE. Reach them by email at
