Big Dogs, Big Hearts event sees several adoptions, more awareness

The mother of prisoner of war Alex Drueke and the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter partnered together Saturday to host an adoption event geared toward the big dogs Drueke favored.

Drueke adopted his 100-pound mastiff mix Diesel from TMAS two years ago.

Currently, Drueke’s mother Bunny Drueke is caring for Diesel.

Through donations, Bunny Dreuke was able to raise enough money to sponsor 10 big-dog adoptions. The event Saturday at Forest Lake United Methodist Church led to the adoption of four of those animals.

Drueke said she’s elated that four of the dogs found their “furever” homes, and the six that remain at Metro have their adoption cost sponsored.

That means if you’re looking for a big boy or girl pup, TMAS has six available for adoption at no cost to you.
