Rescued Cat Makes Neighborhood Smile

Gluther is a rescue cat who was saved from an abandoned home in Southwest Amarillo. One year since his rescue, Gluther has made neighbors smile and has won the heart of a small street in Wolflin.

In 2016, Gluther was abandoned by his owners in a home in Wolflin. The declawed and nuetered cat was stuck inside of the home with no air conditioning and no food or water in the hot weather. Neighbors were able to get Gluther out of the home and he has now become the pride of the neighborhood, bringing joy to all who see him.

"We love Gluther," one neighbor told the Amarillo Pioneer, "He's like the neighborhood cat."

Gluther has found a home now and is the cat of a family in the area. But while Gluther has found his home, many cats and dogs are still looking for their forever home.

Today, the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society reported that 57 cats and 198 dogs are still awaiting adoption in the Amarillo shelter. Many families have found their furry pals at the animal shelter and you could too.

"Adopting a rescue animal is a great thing to do," one local animal trainer told the Pioneer, "It's a great way to save a life."

If you are interested in adopting a rescue animal, call the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society at (806) 373-1716.
