Adorable and Adoptable Pet of the Week: Lucy Birmingham AL Bham Now

Bet you thought we only featured pups? Cats are adorable and adoptable, too! Specifically, Lucy.

Meet Lucy! This beautiful Calico is only three years old and LOVES attention. You should definitely expect a few head butts if the petting stops. Those amber eyes and her inquisitive nature will win you over in a heartbeat. Lucy’s ideal home would be where she is the only pet.

All adoptable pets from the GBHS are neutered/spayed, microchipped and up-to-date on all vaccines. They also have more than just cats, dogs and puppies. They sometimes have birds, ferrets, reptiles, pigs, bunnies and other pets up for adoption. Adoption fees are as follows:
• Cats, kittens, dogs or puppies:
• Animals six months and under: $55
• Animals older than six months: $30
• Rabbits: $30
• Ferrets: $55
• Rats, Guinea Pigs & Hamsters: $15 for one or $20 for a pair

In addition to your adoption fee, there is now a small but mandatory microchipping fee of $10 to make sure you never lose your precious new pets. The first year of your microchipping service will be covered by the shelter. Fun Fact: 58% of lost dogs and 38% of lost cats that were microchipped were reunited with their families.

All active and retired military members and their immediate family members receive waived adoption fees with a valid ID presented at the time of adoption.

You can find out all of the adoptable pets at GBHS right here. It is updated regularly as pets become adoptable.
