SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Meet River, the SylacaugaNews.com and Mutt Cuts pet of the week.

River is a 2-to-3-year-old male lab shepherd mix. He is about 50 pounds and has been at the shelter for about 7 months. He has finished his treatment for heartworms.

River has an outgoing and playful attitude. He loves people and desperately needs a family to call his own.

His adoption fee is $100, which includes his neuter voucher and current vaccinations.

If you can provide a loving lifetime home for a pet in need, please consider adopting from the Sylacauga Animal Shelter. Many cats and dogs like River have been waiting far too long at the shelter and deserve loving homes.

For more information, call the Sylacauga Animal Shelter at (256) 401-2590 or visit the shelter at 41 Shelter Lane Sylacauga, AL 35151. You can also visit the shelter’s Facebook page.
