The Humane Society of Elmore County in Wetumpka needs some help with adoptions, as they are getting quite a full load. They have a large selection, and the two pets featured for adoption this week are Charlie the cat and Derek the pup.
Charlie is a 2-year-old cat that was found as a stray and taken to the shelter in Wetumpka, where they say, “Charlie is what we call a Diva.” He is a wonderful boy, but if you do something he doesn’t like, he will swat you to clearly tell you to stop. So, in effect, Charlie will train you to be the perfect cat owner. Smile here.
Charlie is a very loving boy, and his true special need is that he must eat a grain-free dry food diet. Once Charlie recovered, shelter workers tried him back on regular cat food, but his hair immediately began to fall out again in patches. He would be a spoiled indoor cat that loves living like a prince. Donate what you want to take Charlie home, so think about it.
Derek is just plain handsome and could be your spoiled baby. Derek is a 7-month-old hound mix pup at about 40 pounds. Derek arrived at the shelter back in June with a horribly broken front leg. But, thanks to an awesome local vet, he is now all healed up. Derek is now looking for his forever home. He is great with other dogs and will counter surf sandwiches if you let him. Derek just LOVES people. He could certainly be a spoiled child and will be a loyal one, no matter what you look like. Isn’t that a great trait animals have; they “see” what is on the inside and love that completely and unconditionally.
The same COVID-19 regulations still apply for adoptions and meetings. You first fill out an application and once accepted, then a time will be set up for you to visit Charlie, Derek, or others that may be of interest to you. The shelter’s phone number is 334-567-3377, and the director is Ms. Rea Cord.
Until next time, try to stay dry, love your pets, and as always leave cold water and look forward to the weather changing.
