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: 

Monroe is a 1-year-old Australian Shepherd mix. He is a medium-energy gentleman who always minds his manners. Not only is he respectful of personal space, but he practices excellent leash skills. He is a big fan of toys and cooling off in the kiddie pool. This smart and cheerful guy is always up for a new challenge!   

Monroe is sure to make a wonderful therapy, companion or reading dog!  


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  


Good News! 

Ruttkay shared with us that recent POTW Gramps was adopted and has a new home in Huntsville! 

Thanks to the whole community for making forever homes a regular destination for our furry friends.
