Birch is a sweet, but very timid little female shepherd/bulldog mix who was brought to the shelter as a stray, along with her sister, Ivey. These little girls are probably about three to four months of age, and apparently have not been in the care of someone who has truly cared for them. Birch is very under-nourished, and her behavior is such that she seems to have possibly been on the receiving end of a bit of scolding. She cowers and flinches when approached, and is visibly fearful. She is, however, very sweet, and she does enjoy kindness and affection, petting, and treats. There is no way to know what she has endured, but it is a given that she deserves much better! This sweet baby will make a very sweet, loving, and loyal pet and companion if she is taken in by a family who will love her and give her a chance. For more information regarding this precious little soul, please call the selter at (256)771-7889.

Act quickly to adopt Birch. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

About Athens-Limestone Animal Shelter

Our Adoption Process...

The fee for adopting a dog is $110.00, no matter the age or gender of the pet. This fee covers the cost of the animal to be spayed/neutered & vaccines: DA2PP, Bordatella, and Rabies. The adoption fee also covers a fecal exam for worms and a heart worm test!

The fee for cats is $110.00 covers spay/neuter, and age appropriate vaccines.

It is very important that you understand that you CANNOT take pets from the shelter and breed them. Most of the animals came in as strays, therefore, we do not have any background or genetic information on them. Breeding these pets would not be in their best interest nor yours. Also, a Law was just passed in Alabama which requires that EVERY animal, adopted from a shelter, MUST be spayed or neutered!!
