Pet of the Week: Tank
Pet of the Week: Pepper
The Elmore County Humane Shelter in Wetumpka has two large dogs ready to be adopted, and they are featured this week.
They also want to say “Thank you for being a friend” from the late superwoman with animals, Betty White. Ms. White was special indeed, having no children, but devoting so much to the animals in our care.
Pepper, whose name suits the coat coloring to a “T,” is a possible shepherd/akita mix female, about 10 months old, and roughly 45 pounds. She is a high energy gal, very sweet and good with other dogs and children, but a NO to cats as she will chase them. Pepper loves tummy rubs and needs a BIG and well-fenced yard to keep her safely at home and happy.
Tank, and I’m sure you can see how he got that name, is a wonderful 4-year-old male lab/shepherd mix, weighing 80 pounds. He was kind of a neighborhood dog that everyone loved, but then it didn’t work out so well with a goat!
Tank is great with dogs, cats and children, and needs a family to call his own, no livestock please. Tank is a very loving and friendly boy that would love his own forever home and family. Meanwhile, Tank is just waiting at the shelter (his temporary home) to be picked up soon.
I bet Betty White would take this one; I find golden lab mixtures are the sweetest of the large ones, and they learn easily as they are smart, loving and truly loyal.
To visit Pepper, Tank, or any of the residents at the Elmore County shelter, they are still operating under COVID-19 regulations. All you need to do is request an application by phone or email, and when it’s approved you will get an appointment time to visit and meet as many dogs as you’d like to and take one home for just $100.
When you choose from the shelter, you can learn the truthful things that will make a difference to the newly adopted pet you want to take home with you. The fee includes basic vaccinations, deworming, mandatory spay/neuter, microchip, rabies shot, heartworm check, and a check-up by your vet.
Call the humane shelter at 334-567-3377 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember, if you find a “lost” dog please take them inside to stay warm, and make sure your animals are inside. Friends don’t let friends freeze!
Until next week,
The Dog Lover
