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!
Bendito…at first I thought, ‘What kind of funny name did they give me?’ When I found out it means “blessed” in Spanish, I decided it was a perfect fit, since I’m definitely fortunate to have ended up here. Everyone is so nice to me and I have lots of good food to eat and even some pals to play with! As nice as it is here, I’m hoping that there’s a family out there meant just for me. I’m only five months old and I have lots of energy so hopefully I can find someone who can keep up with my energy level. I’m also part Border Collie, and if you anything about my heritage, then you’re well aware that we benefit from daily exercise and training-luckily, training classes are included with my adoption-how cool is that?! I like other dogs just fine, but I’d certainly appreciate a proper introduction if I’m to have a new roommate. And it’s too soon to tell just how I feel about those cat critters…they’re pretty interesting, so I’ll let you know more when I decide if I like them or not. Well, I decided the only I could be more blessed is if I had a family to call my own…will that be you?

With a Little Help From My Friends’ Pet Crisis Center assists Antrim County Animal Control by taking in primarily owner relinquished pets due to a crisis in the family. These animals came from loving homes who ran out of options and had to relinquish their pet to animal control. This is not a place for the public to bring in a pet but it is a place for the public to visit and adopt. Volunteers welcome.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society
Gavin is our 2.5 year old Alaskan Husky /Akita mix that has been in our shelter since April of this year. What Gavin needs is a very active family who also knows and understands this breed. If you are looking for a running partner than Gavin would be ideal. One thing we are asking is the adopter has a fenced in yard either physical or invisible. Gavin is one of the smartest dogs and because and for that reason we think he would excel with training. Gavin would do best as the an only pet, but he does seem to get along with some of the dogs here at the shelter. Cats would be a no.
The Charlevoix Human Society's mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious.
