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


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?




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. For more information about all pets available for adoption or to donate, visit them online at www.ltbhs.com

herself now in her forever home.  She is a beautiful girl with the most beautiful eyes. She is a one year old tabby.

Help From My Friends

 

Yoda is always ready to play! At just one year old he has lots of spunk in him and would love a feline friend. And she's really good at taking her own selfie. Yoda is neutered, 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


 
 
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. 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



Scout is a big, happy, handsome dude. He is 5 and he is funny. This guy could use a bit of exercise and maybe lay off the extra cheese and pepperoni pizza! Seriously though, Scout is quite active and playful. Being allowed to get out and move and a good diet would make a world of difference for this very nice dog. Scout may be a bit too happy to live with cats but he seems to like other dogs. This dog has been neutered, micro-chipped and is up to date on vaccinations. For more information, call (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: avascares@yahoo.com

AuSable Valley Animal is a privately funded nonprofit animal shelter. We are a No Kill facility and stray center for dogs within Crawford county and a closed admission No Kill cat shelter. Our main goals are rehab and rehome, education, and animal welfare within our community.
