Shelter workers know animals well, provide helpful information
Pet of the Week: Loki
The humane shelter in Elmore County, Wetumpka, is also feeling the heat like us, and more than anything they need forever adoptive families. I always remind myself that my dogs (seven) love us humans more than they love themselves; they are so loyal and super protective.
We have a bearded collie female, EmmaLee, who was found walking along a busy highway at only about 4 months old or less. EmmaLee is the most loving dog we have ever had. She loves to crawl up into her dad’s lap and snuggle in for a nap or a petting session then she will lick/kiss all over his face as if to say thank you. Her hair is long just now, but she will get short groomed again later this month for her comfort.
You never know how a dog will be; that’s why it’s great to be able to adopt from a shelter where the professional workers have been able to get to know the dogs and watch them in action. There is so much information to be had, which is very helpful, just like watching a “Cesar” show on National Geographic, who really knows the dogs!
Every dog at my home came from a shelter and has a different personality, all good. We even have a jack russell, Rocky/Rockstar, who was a big jumper, and now only jumps when truly excited, like dinnertime.
This week’s featured adoptable pet is Loki, a 6-month-old male lab mix that came to the shelter from a not-so-great situation, but he is a happy, needy fella that craves people. I’m thinking much like our Rocky-Rock. Loki can be a bit jumpy as he so wants attention, and he loves kisses. Plus he is already dressed up in his handsome tuxedo, too, just needs a big bow tie for special occasions! Loki might be a bit too excitable for most kitties, is great with other dogs, and since he does jump, let’s say older children could be best.
The same rules are in place for adoptions; you must complete and have accepted an application then you can have an appointment to see Loki and others you may want to meet at your leisure.
You can call the shelter at 334-567-3377 or email email@example.com. The staff will be so helpful with information on any of the animals they care for in the shelter.
Fee for dogs is $100 and includes so much: spay/neuter, microchip, basic immunizations, rabies shot if old enough, de-worming, heartworm check, and your first vet check-up; a real bargain.
Remember to leave plenty of cold water, and if at all possible let your dogs in the house with you where it’s lovely and comfy-cool. Ours live inside with us, only going out for bathroom breaks.
Until next time; love your fur babies.
