Meet the all-around good dog, Baxter! He is a male German Shepherd/Terrier mix, and is between 1-2 years old, weighing 45 pounds. He’s the Humane Society of West Alabama’s Pet of the Week!
There are so many ways to show children that you care and that you are “there with them” through the grieving process.
Here’s wishing all our Druid City Living readers a great week, filled with all kinds of outstanding local events. Get out, get involved, and above all else: Have fun!
Enjoy your week, T-Town.
Tux is a big, beautiful cat! He has a handsome black and white coat and beautiful green eyes and a heart of gold. And he’s this week’s Humane Society of West Alabama Pet of the Week!
Tux loves to hang out in the enclosed “catio” and watch the birds. He will also come up to you and nuzzle your feet so that you can scratch his ears!
Tux requires a cat-savvy human and a nice big space to call his own. The HSWA treats him every morning with a little bit of "kitty Prozac" paste to the inside of his ears which helps with his anxiety. He would do best as an only cat, or he could be adopted with another cat he has made friends with at the HSWA cat house. Tux is also an alpha cat, and one of our adoption counselors can tell you who his best match would be.
For more information on how to adopt Tux, please visit humanesocietyofwa.org.
Tux is Negative for FIV, and FeLK, current on vaccinations, and neutered. The HSWA’s adoption fee is $75, to help cover a fraction of veterinary costs and general care expenses. Vet records are provided to Adopters.
On Thursday, June 13, all of Tuscaloosa’s many veterans’ organizations will be on hand to celebrate the 244th birthday of the U.S. Army (June 14, 1775). The event is planned for 3:30 p.m. at the Tuscaloosa Federal Building and Courthouse downtown. Everyone is invited to attend.
Last year’s inaugural Druid City Songwriters Festival was a hit, with Tuscaloosa music lovers coming out to various locations throughout downtown Tuscaloosa to enjoy hearing over 30 songwriters. Now the free event, renamed the Black Warrior Songwriters Festival, is set for June 21-23.
The festival will bring over 50 local and regional songwriters to several venues throughout downtown Tuscaloosa for intimate, “in-the-round” style performances. Organizers say these performances incorporate the rich storytelling culture of the region and highlight the deep pool of musical talent in the area.
Here are some ways to help kids express and manage their feelings.
Kimmy is a 2-3-year-old female Pitbull terrier mix. This gorgeous pup is the Humane Society of West Alabama’s Pet of the Week!
After more than three years of research and discovery, the Tuscaloosa Civil Rights History Trail will officially open on Monday, June 10, 2019. An event will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, 620 Greensboro Ave.
Tuscaloosa County Park & Recreation Authority’s Center Court Tuscaloosa and The Gateway will host the Boys & Girls Clubs for a Tennis & Tech Day on June 14. CCT will also host an Open House on June 15 and 16. CCT is located at 715 21st Avenue East.
PARA reports the idea for the neighborhood event came together with the completion of Alberta Parkway. The parkway acts as a “main street” and provides ease of access with lighting and landscaping which are important assets to the Alberta neighbors.
A schedule of events on June 14, for Tennis and Tech Day will include youth from the Boys & Girls Clubs to visit Center Court Tuscaloosa and The Gateway.
