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

 I look like a big boy and I feel like a big boy, but let’s face it, I’m more of a large bull dog size than a boxer. My name is Braven and I’m a three year old Boxer mix hoping to find a forever home with you. I’m a very handsome and friendly dog with people, however, I absolutely do not like cats and sometimes I don’t even like other dogs. I don’t really know what determines my preferences, but if you bring in your furry pal for a meet and greet we’ll see how it goes. Hint:The girls usually win my heart over the boys. Another thing to keep in mind is that I don’t like to share my food, so a home without children would suit me best. Besides, they would want to hug me, or play fetch or other doggy games, and I’m not into all that mushy stuff or team sports. No, it’s mostly about me and the fact that I want to be your four legged child. So if you agree with me on all of the above, then please be sure to come see me soon. My name is Braven and I’d like to be a part of your family.

My name is PJ and I’m a handsome black and white long haired cat in need of a forever home. My brother Forrest and me are very attached to each other and would like to share a family if possible. We are both very shy when it comes to strangers, so you’ll need plenty of patience until we adjust to our new home. Thanks, PJ. and my brother Forrest.

When rescued as a stray, Alfie was very scared and had a very high hunt instinct.
Since being in a very calm environment, he has become very loving and wants to be close to you. He loves having his head and chin rubbed. He can be very silly when he carries his bed and blanket around. He loves his toys and lots of playtime. Alfie would do best in a calm home with no other animals and older children that respect cats and their needs. He is a wonderful cat who will be great with someone who will be patient with him and give him time to adjust to a new home. He would love to find his forever buddy. Alfie is a very handsome guy, a short hair black and white 1 1/2 year old kitty. If you would like to adopt Alfie, go and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire.

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

My name is Dude and I think I’m pretty dapper if I say so myself! I’m a loving, super sweet pup that would love to be a part of your family. Not to brag, but I’m 9 years old and I know several commands! I’m a very active dog so if you have kids I will keep them busy and wear them out for you everyday! I also think I’m perfect for kids because I like to play dress-up. It’s so much fun! Do you like to play dress-up? I love to snuggle and keep you safe and warm. I am not fond of kitties, so a home with out cats would be best for me. When you adopt me, I’ll be the guard of the house. One thing that motivates me a lot is yummy treats. I mean who doesn’t love treats? So after you read this letter and you think that I’m the perfect dog for you, please come and adopt me!

    I’m looking for a shitzu. My boyfriend likes them as they are hypoallergenic and they don’t shed. Can you help me?
