Lite Weekends

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

Hello, my name is Kayla and I'm a sweet little Chihuahua mix that would love to have a forever home once again. I'm four years old, so you know I haven't been without a family all those years, it's just that something came up, unbeknownst to me by the way, and suddenly there I was without a home! I'm a good little girl with everyone, but I think I'd be more comfortable if there weren't any small children around because I'm a little shy with strangers. Once I'm settled in, I'm fine, I just need a little time to get used to a new environment. I'm good with cats too in case you were wondering. I sure hope you'll give me a chance to settle in and become one of your best dogs ever!

I was a mama cat when I first arrived at LTBHS and now all my babies have found their forever homes. Okay, it's my turn. My name is Jade and I'm a lovely tortoiseshell girl somewhere around a year old. I lived with a foster family while my kittens were still dependent on me, so I'm used to living in a home. I'm clean and quiet and very friendly. My dream is to be a part of your family soon.
The LTBHS located on West Conway Road, between Petoskey and Harbor Springs is a no kill shelter that helps find  homes for over 500 dogs and cats each year. The LTBHS is completely funded thru donations. All pets adopted from LTBHS are neutered and have received a vet check and shots.

 BARKER had been adopted from AC PAW in January of 2016, but apparently the adopter no longer wanted him as he was found wandering stray in Antrim County. All attempts to locate his owner have failed. Barker is such a friendly, lovable guy. He loves to cuddle and enjoys being brushed. We don't know how long Barker had been outside on his own, but he seems to be very happy to be back inside warm, safe and well fed.  Come meet Barker at Petsmart. We know you'll fall in love with  him.To meet Barker, please contact
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.

With A Little Help From My Friends


Georgette is a special kitty, she has only 3 legs! Despite her lack of a front leg, Georgette has no problem in the cat room. She is looking for a quiet place to spend her retirement years. Georgette is 10 years old, spayed, up to date on shots and tested negative for FeLV/FIV. Indoor home only please.

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

Harvey is all white with beautiful gold eyes. He is one of the dogs that we brought up from a high kill shelter down south. We think Harvey had a pretty rough start in life. Harvey  will take a minute to feel comfortable with you but then he will show his true personality. Harvey wants to be your friend and play with you.  Harvey does show interest in other dogs, but selective in his choices of playmates.
When it comes to walking, he seems to have leash manners and interacts well with the person walking him. Harvey would do well in an active home.  Owners  will need to be especially compassionate to help Harvey feel loved and so he feels secure. He would do best in a home with children over 15 .

The Charlevoix Human Society's mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious. As such, we are committed to the highest principles of humane care and professional treatment of injured, ill, neglected or abused animals. For more information on pets that are available for adoption or to donate, visit the shelter at 614 Beardsley Street in Boyne City or online at

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

Tara is a small, 3 year old pitty girl that’s got a sense of adventure and wants to get out and see the world. She’s spent most of her life here at AuSable Valley Animal Shelter, and she’d like to go out and get a new lease on life. Tara has tons of energy, so sometimes she plays rough. But boy does she love to play! Whether it’s toys, a walk, or a good, old-fashioned tummy rub, Tara is down for it. Sadly, she plays pretty rough, so she would prefer to be an only dog. She’s also bursting at the seams with affection she wants to give to a new family, and she can hardly contain her excitement to meet you. Tara is micro-chipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccinations. She’s also really excited to see the world on the other side of these fences, and will see her whole life with you as a great, big adventure. For more information, call (989) 348-4117 or e-mail:
