Pet of the Week: Baby Sorrel needs a forever home

CULLMAN - It’s been a busy week at the Cullman County Animal Shelter, with two adoptions and the resolution of at least part of a tragic animal cruelty case.  Donna Ruttkay shared that even older dogs that are generally less adoptable are finding homes. Another of those left the shelter this week.

Said Ruttkay, “She had a bit of age on her, wasn't cute and fuzzy--I thought she was beautiful!--but had the heart of a champion.  Now she's an uptown girl!”

Ruttkay also told us about Sassy, a recent animal abuse survivor and last week’s Pet of the Week. “The last of the most current cruelty case, Sassy, was also adopted by a loving couple.  After her horrific start in life, Sassy's come a bit out of her shell, as she wags her tail proudly. She will surely be a blessing to her new family, and them to her.”

This week’s Pet of the Week

Sorrel is a wonderful mixed-breed puppy who’s approximately 3 months old.  Even though she’s a puppy, she’s a laid-back and cuddly low-energy pet with a lot of potential to become a companion, comfort or therapy dog.  Sorrel's learning and practicing leash etiquette.

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.  Five of the shelter’s dogs have recently been “hired” to work as special needs service dogs.

Sorrel’s adoption fee is $90 and that includes the following: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, neuter, microchip, free 45-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).

Please consider adopting to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.
