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!
They call me Rocco and I'm a guy that knows what he does and doesn't like. Let's begin with my likes: people, older children, walks, playing fetch, my toys, snuggles, and especially smelly yummy treats! My likes far outweigh my dislikes don't you think? And at the top of that naughty list is cats; second is small children-they are just too much for me, and last on the list is some dogs, I'll pick which ones, you'll never be able to tell like me, so I'll need to be introduced first and then I'll let you know. There are only a few, so don't worry because I like most dogs. But let's talk more about my likes shall we? I love people and sometimes I get very excited about meeting new ones, so I may need a little tweaking on my manners, which is okay because I come with a free class when I'm adopted. You may want to take advantage of that. Remember I'm very treat motivated so I'll definitely be looking forward to those learning sessions. And when we're finished with that, there's nothing like a good snuggle on the couch. Sigh, when I talk about all these things it makes me realize how much I miss having a forever home. After all, I lived in a home for two years and a guy just can't forget that. I hope you'll come fall in love with me soon so we can walk out the door together as a family.

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.

This is our Buddy. He is sweet and smart and just wants to be your friend. Buddy loves to go for walks and car rides. He will be next to your side and be helping you with whatever you are doing. Buddy would do well in just about any lifestyle, but we think he would excel in an active one. We also feel that Buddy would excel in agility if the right family could do that. There is quite a bit of intelligence there and with the energy level that Buddy has, he needs to be engaged in games and physical activity. He would make an awesome pet for someone who loves to be on go all the time.
The Charlevoix Human Society's mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious.

From Northern Michigan Animal Rescue Network
Howdy folks! O’Malley is my name and though I may look like every other red tabby in the world, I've got my very own unique personality and lots of it. I’m six years old and weigh in at 12 pounds of solid muscle, but I’m a lover, not a fighter. My foster Mom calls me her sweet boy and my favorite place is curled up on her lap or, if that’s not available, on the bed next to her pillow. I can be a bit shy around new people until I get to know them. I LOVE to be brushed and will take all the attention and pampering you’ve got to give. To meet O'Malley in his foster home, call or message the NMARN rescue line 231-238-PAWS (7297).
