Bark in the Perk set for Sept. 19
The featured pet this week from the Elmore County Humane Shelter on Alabama Highway 9 close to U.S. Highway 231 is Ponch.
Ponch is an unusual name; he has a mostly dappled white coat, like a faded Dalmatian, with one black ear. Shelter professionals think he looks like a bulldog/Aussie mix and is 55 pounds of solid boy! Ponch can be a bit shy at first, but once he gets comfortable with you he’s a love. He has medium energy levels and is good with FEMALE dogs and actually scared of cats.
Ponch went to the shelter as a picked up stray that no one came to collect. He had entropion of both eyes that has been surgically corrected, so no more weepy eyes.
Same regulations apply for adoption appointments; get an application completed and approved, then get an appointment to see the dogs that you like the sound/looks of on one trip.
You may call the shelter for information at 334-567-3377. If you talk to Rea Cord, the director, please send my best wishes; they do a spectacular job at this shelter. No cruelty is allowed, and all the animals are treated fairly and prepped for good health, ready for adoption, plus being fixed and having the immunizations required and rabies vaccination (if old enough) and a check-up at a local vet.
Please consider adopting an animal from your local shelter; they all need loving homes where they will be loyal to you and the family.
Be sure to note on your calendar the date for the 15th annual Bark in the Park at Fort Toulouse in Wetumpka; it will happen this year, and the date is set for Sunday, September 19, 1-5 p.m. Dogs and kids get in free, but for each person more than 13 years old the fee is $5 each.
Be kind to your animal babies and help them access plenty of cold water.
Until next time,
The Dog Lover
