'These animals deserve a second chance'

Find your forever friend at the Cullman County Animal Shelter!

"Our shelter stays full," said Cullman County Animal Shelter Manager Andrea Hudson when asked about her facility's capacity. "We have 33 kennels and they pretty much stay occupied, and we always have an abundance of cats for adoption."

Hudson said most of the dogs that end up in the shelter do so after being picked up as strays.

"The majority of dogs we adopt out are strays that were never claimed," she said. "These animals deserve a second chance, and our no. 1 goal is to place them in loving homes. We have a great team here at the shelter; we work with each animal individually to get them ready for their new life. We even have a shelter dog named Reba who helps with timid dogs, getting them to come out of their shell."

Hudson praised the community for its support, saying, "We are blessed to live in a community that supports their local shelter with donations, Facebook shares, comments and likes. The Facebook interaction is truly very much appreciated. God has truly blessed us with adoptions, and we couldn’t do what we do without East Point Veterinary Hospital."

She continued, "Adopting a shelter animal is rewarding in itself. Not only are you giving that animal a much deserved home, but they truly make the best family pets. They are so appreciative and humble. We get updates from our adopters through Facebook, and we even have them come back for visits. Seeing how happy they are and thriving in their new life is  what makes all this worthwhile." 

The shelter can always use donations of dye-free cat food and dog food (value pack from Chambers Farm and Garden Supply), bleach, paper towels, plain Milk Bones and cat treats and non-clumping cat litter.
