Each week we will feature a wide array of Cats and Dogs from the Decatur Animal Services that need adopting. You may see them featured on other media outlets but the main goal is the same, GET THESE BABIES ADOPTED! Below is a gallery with a bio on each one to let you know a little bit more about their personality. If you're interested at all be sure and stop by to see them even if it is just to scratch their little head or play with them!
Decatur Animal Services is located at 300A Beltline Rd. (Morgan Park) Decatur, Alabama 35601
Stop by and see them Monday - Friday from 10am to 4:30pm or Saturday 10am - 1pm!
Pet Tip of the Week
Understanding your puppy!! Dogs are group-living animals that expect, and are respectful of, a leader in their social group. It is important that you assume the leadership role for your puppy by establishing clear rules and expectations for behavior. You should be firm and gentle, not punitive, when you train your new puppy. The need to be consistent is necessary. Have all of your family make the puppy follow the same rules. If your puppy is excitable, have him/her earn attention and other things by being calm and quiet. Follow through with all of your commands and only give the command one time. Never hit or strike your puppy for disobeying and always reward your puppy for good behavior with plenty of praise, patting or with a small kibble of puppy food.
