Pet of the Week: Turkey
With this being Thanksgiving week, the Humane Society of Elmore County expresses a large amount of gratitude and features a special Pet of the Week.
The humane society said that it simply had to make Turkey its Pet of the Week. Turkey is a 2-year-old female pit that came to the shelter as a stray. The shelter says she is beyond sweet and has a funny broken bark, hence her name Turkey.
She is a rather petite pit, weighing only 27 pounds, and she is great with other dogs. She is very playful and just a little clown who loves people.
Anyone interested in adopting Turkey can fill out an application online at www.elmorehumane.org, and once the application is approved the shelter will coordinate with the potential adopter to set up an appointment to meet Turkey or other available pets and complete the adoption process.
The Elmore County Humane Society is located at 255 Central Plank Road, Wetumpka. It can be reached at 334-567-3377.
At this season of thanksgiving, the shelter extends its gratitude and appreciation to its dedicated staff, veterinarians and their staff members, their dog exercisers, donors, supporters, adopters, and all of the wonderful animals that ask so little of them but give so much in return.
The shelter was closed yesterday and will be closed today for the holiday, but it will be open again tomorrow, November 26.
However, the shelter’s Tail’s End Thrift Store will be open for Black Friday sales. Today all clothing is “buy one, get one of equal or lesser value free.” All linens and select pet items will be 50% off Friday and Saturday, and on Saturday jewelry will be on sale for 50% off. Come shop the bargains this weekend!
During this holiday season, as many are enjoying Thanksgiving leftovers and preparing for Christmas feasts, it is important to remember foods that will make your dog sick. Please be mindful and help your dog avoid eating these common Thanksgiving foods: turkey skin and bones, turkey twine, garlic, onions, grapes and raisins, bread dough, corn on the cob, gravy and trimmings, and chocolate.
We wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving with your family, friends, loved ones, and especially your furry family members!
