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

Hey, my name is Napoleon and yes I am small of stature like my namesake. Do I have an attitude? I'm a Pug mix after all, do you need to ask? I like other dogs especially if they are as small or smaller than me, but it would be a good idea to bring in your dog or dogs so I can meet them. I don't mind cats as long as they let me chase them, but so far I have no volunteers-I guess no cats for me then. KIds are okay, but if we could get to know one another first that would be great. Say, isn't everyone looking for a Pug mix? I hope so because I'm definitely looking for a forever home. P.S. In case you were wondering, unlike the general, I don't do hats!

Hello there! There seem to be a lot of cats and kittens at the shelter right now, and it's hard to compete with all of them, because we're all after the same thing; a forever home. But I like to think I have a bit of an advantage-I'm a super sweet, pretty little gray-haired girl with a big heart and lots of love to give. My name is Hazel, and I'm only 12 weeks old-just the right age to find a new family...could it be yours? I hope so!

Cherryland Humane Society

CHS' pet of the week this week is Ace! Ace was an owner surrender after his owner was deployed overseas by the military. He is 1.5 years old and is a Lancashire Heeler/Mix. Ace is super sweet and well behaved. Because of his herding breed background we are unsure how he would do with
small animals or children. Please call the shelter at 946-5116 if you are interested.

Come in for a visit or you can check him out on our website,

AC Paws is having a special Buddies Adoption Weekend at Petsmart this
Saturday and Sunday. They have many cats that are bonded and would like to adopt out together. Like MARCO AND DUNKEN, two very sweet, gentle boys who came to AC Paws when their owner had to move and was unable to take them.  Marco is very outgoing, while Dunken is quite shy and may hide at first going into a new home, but they are young enough to adjust to most any household.
They have been around dogs and other cats.  Both Marco and Dunken are short hair orange and white eleven month old kitties..If you would like to meet Vangelina, 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. AC PAW has now rescued over 6,000 animals in the northern Michigan region and services the five-county Grand Traverse area.


With A Little Help From My Friends


Penny is 4 years old and looking for a loving home where she can be snuggled all the time!! Penny is good with other cats, kids and would probably do alright with a gentle dog.  Just like all of the center’s cats Penny is spayed, up to date on shots and tested negative 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

Sally is a three year old Terrier mix who came to us as a stray. She has been here since the end of April. Sally can be shy when she first is introduced, but once she warms up, she is like a shadow.
Sally is conservative about who her friends are, but once she decides, she is loyal.  Sally and Tank, (our pit bull), are best of friends in play time. Sally keeps her kennel clean. We are looking for an active family with older children and room to run for this girl who is just waiting to blossom when that right family comes along.

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

Duke needs a fenced yard to bound around and stretch his long legs. He also needs a fenced yard because he has an amazing hound sniffer and the world is so full of great stuff to sniff that Duke sometimes gets carried away. Duke likes his toys, loves his treats and enjoys long walks (gotta keep the old nose tuned up!) At 2 years old Duke does know a bit about living in a house but would benefit from a crate when left alone or when there is a lot of coming and going happening. This handsome Foxhound has been good around other dogs at the shelter but is just too interested in the kitties so we suggest a cat free home for Duke. He has been neutered, vaccinated and mico-chipped.For more information, call (989) 348-4117 or e-mail:
