Paws for the Cause: Decatur critters need help

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

To say it has been a tough week for Decatur Animal Services would be an understatement.

Lawrence County shut down its shelter June 7. Decatur took in many of those dogs, despite having a capacity problem of their own. Now, they have more than 200 cats and kittens as well.

Perhaps you can help give some of these critters a home.

  •  Karla is one of the 200 kittens. She is a dark tortoise-shell Maine coon, 9 months old and only 5 pounds. She is very friendly and purrs quietly when petted.
  • Miley, Smiley, Briley and Kylie are here too. Miley is a tortie who looks like she enjoys orange juice. Smiley is a gray tabby. Briley is a calico and Kylie is a torbie. They are all 3 months old and 4 pounds. If you adopt one, you get the other free -- that goes for all cats and kittens.
  • Spot is a very smart grey and black Aussie Heeler. He's 10 months old, 18 pounds, calm, well-mannered and great with other dogs and children, especially if they need herding!
  • Flash is a one-year old black retriever. He weighs 27 pounds, has golden eyes and really uses them. He's very observant and will chase anything, so get those toys ready!

All these animals are available at the Decatur animal shelter. They are open Saturdays at 10 a.m. Remember: it's buy-one-get-one-free on cats and kittens. Also, when you adopt you receive a $20 gift certificate to a local pet store.
