Peggie Sue Ott was such a gem this past week. She tried to find a place to take the kittens left on the porch of Nixburg House. Peggie’s vet and the Alexander City shelter both said “no” to Coosa abandoned kittens. I calked the Elmore County shelter, and Rea Cord agreed to take them, so Peggie took them to Wetumpka. This just goes to show you how desperately Coosa County needs their own humane shelter and a hired catcher to take the animals into them.
Luckily Coosa will have a shelter, thanks to Dennis Hill and a ton of volunteers with good hearts. Work has been done already, tearing out rotten framing of bathrooms with a tractor and lots of debris removal and roofing.
Upcoming work for the next two weeks will be on schedule and on budget, thanks to the many volunteers, and will include window work, electrical and plumbing. The kennels will be installed in late October, and painting will happen in November. Kudos to everyone involved in getting Coosa County’s Animal Shelter.
The featured Pet of the Week from Elmore County Humane Shelter is Phoebe, an 11-year-old female torti whose entire world was turned upside down when her loving owner passed away. Phoebe was petrified at first, but shelter folks have found that she is an incredibly sweet lady, and they learned that Phoebe is perfectly fine with dogs (her two dog buddies have found their new homes), but she does NOT like other cats.
Phoebe does like to hide, but talks and rubs all around you, and she loves to be petted and held. Shelter staff think she has not been around young children, but older ones should be fine. She’s likely not known men, but surely will love those that lovingly care for her.
Phoebe has been thoroughly vetted with a clean bill of health and is a beautiful lady with many, many years of love yet to give; she is indoor only.
Call for an application at 334-567-3377; once approved, you will get an appointment to meet with Phoebe or any of the animals that may be of interest to you. Fees for cats older than a year are the adopter’s choice. All adoptable animals have been spayed/neutered, had basic vaccinations, rabies shot, de-wormed, and microchipped, and the fees are truly a great deal.
Until next week,
The Dog Lover
