Shelter grateful for all donations
The Humane Shelter of Elmore County in Wetumpka has received the takings from several fundraisers over the past weeks, and they have bought up a bunch of food for the animals they house. They are very grateful for any donations, whether in money, through a gathering for the same, or goods for the thrift shop next to the shelter on Alabama Highway 9 close to the intersection of U.S. Highway 231.
What the shelter needs most of all now is loving families that will adopt the animals currently living at the shelter, where they have a large variety just waiting for their own forever home.
Curtis with his lovely blended coat looks to be a male Bulldog/Catahoula mix, about 2 years old and roughly 60 pounds. Sadly, Curtis arrived at the shelter as a stray (shame on those who put him out!); he just showed up at a family’s home where he could have stayed, but he was stealing all of his neighbor’s packages.
Curtis is a very loving dog and wants to be a big lap dog, but he is also a LOT of dog and will take you skiing on a leash if you are not prepared. Such a striking appearance, he’s good with other dogs, but not with cats. He has been treated for heartworms, and he says he is now ready to find his forever loving home.
The other featured dog this week available for adoption is Baxter. He is a beauty for sure, almost “kingly” as he sits so nicely. Baxter is an 8-year-old male Lab, about 50 pounds, very laid back and a sweet boy. This lovely fellow sounds like and favors looks of my big boy Bama, a golden that has more hair and also came from the Elmore County shelter. I wish I had the space to keep Baxter, but seven total dogs with one being that gentle Golden is about all we can manage, without “more hands.”
Baxter will make a great family pet and is good with other dogs, cats and older children. The Shelter Director Rea Cord says, “Baxter is the perfect bigger dog if you want a low-key boy who just wants to hang out and watch TV with you.”
The same rules apply for adoptions. You need to complete an application, and once it’s approved, you then get the visit planned to see and meet as many pets as you like. Fee for dogs: $100, which covers all you need, including the mandatory spay/neuter and immunizations/rabies, etc.
Please open your heart if you can, and adopt a beauty, already mostly trained, like one of these here.
Until next time,
The Dog Lover
