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



HI, I'm Bentley and I'm a six month old Miniature Pinscher mix. I'm cute, cute, cute! I'm also very lovable and sweet. I'm okay with other dogs as long as I can meet them first, but because I like to play a lot, your dog will need to be okay with that. I come with free training classes that I look forward to attending, only because I want to learn how to be a good very boy. I'm a smart little guy, so it shouldn't take me to long to reach that goal. I want to be under your tree this holiday season with a big bow around my neck and a gift tag that says "Forever Yours!"



Anyone out there looking for an adorable kitten for Christmas? If so, then I hope you'll pick me! My name is Galesburg and I'm a handsome little guy who is only four months old. I'm hopeful that I'll be in my new home by the holidays-I'd sure love to sit under the lights of a pretty Christmas tree and know I am loved.

AC PAWS

 
 
Twelve year old Kora Belle is a very sweet senior kitty.  Her owner became very ill and she was put outside to fend for herself for several months.  She is a very loving little lady, but will be a little shy at first going into a new home. She would do best as an only cat. She might do okay with another cat as long as they are not agressive towards her. She will be okay with dogs as long as they are friendly.  Kora Belle is a domestic long hair beautiful Tortie.  You can meet this sweet girl at Petsmart. For more information, please contact www.acpaw.org
 
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.

 

Help From My Friends

 

Georgette is looking for a quiet home to live out her retirement years. With only 3 legs she does not move about much, she is really just looking for a lap! Georgette is 11 years old, spayed, up to date on shots and tested for FeLV/FIV.  

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


 
 

Wookiee came to us as an owner surrender.  He is a very handsome boy. Wookiee is what we call a working breed.  He needs a job to do.  This breed is used on farms to help herd and protect livestock. 

Because of these traits, we are looking for that active home or farm where he will fit right in.He is very personable and loves to be around the staff. We do have people interested in Wookiee, and we will be sure to have him go to that perfect home where he can be the happy and content dog that he should be!!

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 www.charlevoixhumane.org

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter



Uno is a very handsome Pit/Lab mix. He is fun and sweet and active and affectionate. All of the ladies love him! This guy is looking for a home with people willing to spend quite a bit of time with him because he just looooves his humans. He also loves hotdogs and Beggin’ Strips but that’s a whole different thing.
Uno is very likely housebroken and seems okay with other dogs but I think that he would prefer to have people all to himself. This dog is not a good match with a home with cats. Uno has been neutered, micro chipped and is up to date on vaccinations. All he needs is a good home. For more information, call
(989) 348-4117 or e-mail: avascares@yahoo.com

From Cheboygan County Humane Society



Tug is an neutered male adult cat.  He came to us as a stray so we don't know much about him but he is friendly and would love for you to come out and take a look at him so he can go home.
Please visit their website at cheboyganhumanesociety.org.

You can visit our shelter at 1536 Hackleburg Rd Cheboygan Michigan or give us a call at 231-238-8221. Our hours are Mon-Fri 9-4pm and Saturday we are open 12-4pm.
