Pet of the Week


Welcome to the Lite 96.3 Pet of the Week.
If you are looking for a new furry family member for your home, please consider adopting from one of our area shelters. There are thousands of pets each year in Northern Michigan who lose their family for one reason or
another. Rescue is love!

From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter

You know how sometimes someone’s name just suits them? Well, I’ve been told that’s the case with my name, which is Treasure by the way. I’m a two year old terrier mix and a very friendly boy at that. There’s no one that I don’t get along with, so if you have other dogs in your home, I’m good with that. I’m even cool with those cat critters, and if you have kiddos, I’d love to romp around with them in the backyard of my new home! I’m hoping that I’ll find my new family soon—I can’t wait to spend a fun-filled summer with them!

My name is Fitch and I’m a very handsome cat who is 3 years old. I’m not only good looking, but I’m sociable with people and other cats. I do not like dogs though and I’m not afraid to let them know! My dream is a forever home where I’ll be loved and spoiled to my heart’s content. Purrs and all that, Fitch.

Cherryland Humane Society

Our Pet of the Week this week is Quill! He is a 12 year old that arrived at CHS as a stray. Quill was then adopted and returned due to not getting along with the other dog in the house. He is a very sweet handsome boy who is good with cats and everyone he meets. Probably best if he’s the only dog in the home, loves to have all the attention to himself.
Loves to be held and snuggled, has the best outgoing and loving personality. Quill is the dog you could easily fall in love with!

Maggie was surrendered to AC PAW due to being in a stressful household where the dogs
scared her. She loves belly rubs and will throw herself on the floor patiently waiting for those rubs. She loves children. A home as a one and only pet with no other cats or dogs would be best for her. She is a very pretty girl, a short hair kitty with the most beautiful black shiny coat. She is all four paw declawed. She would be a wonderful companion for an older person or couple. Maggie is eight years old. You can meet her at PetSmart. If you would like to adopt Maggie, or for more information, go to our website at and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire.
AC PAW was founded in 1995 to give animals a second chance at life. The non-profit, no-kill shelter started as a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease and death. AC PAW has now rescued over 6,000 animals in the northern Michigan region and services the five-county Grand Traverse area.

Suzzy came to us with six other dogs as owner surrender. This old girl is in need of a special home with a special owner. Suzzy is totally blind and suffers from other maladies related to age and lack of proper care. If you can be that special someone who can share endless love and affection for this girl please come in and give her a cuddle. Suzzy just needs a quiet home with love to pass her days. She is fully vetted, micro-chipped and ready for affection.
