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 everyone, my name is Lucy and I'm a Potcake, a mixed breed dog that originally came from the Bahamas. I was adopted when I was just a baby and now my family had to move and couldn't take me with them. These things happen I'm told and if you want my opinion, I think it stinks. I'm not an outgoing girl, I like routine, and now my program has changed drastically and I have to start all over again. I'm used to my crate, however, so I feel comfortable there when things are changing around me. I'm also more at ease with other dogs or cats, and children too. I'm somewhat afraid of loud noises, especially thunderstorms, so you'll probably find me in my crate when that happens. I would prefer a quiet home with a fenced in yard and other calm pets like me. I hope you'll come meet so you can see what a nice girl I am.



Three little kittens lost their mittens and they began to cry, but in this case it was their mom, not mittens. That's even sadder. But this story has a happy ending, the three little kittens found a foster mom to take care of them along with her own six babies. What a great mom she is! My name is Isaiah and I'm one of those three little kittens. My brothers and me are very thankful that we have our foster mom. We've grown big and strong and now we're ready for our forever homes. Hurry and take advantage of the kitten sale going on right now at LTBHS!

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.

AC PAWS

 
BABY RUTH IS OUR VERY SPECIAL PET OF THE WEEK.  Baby Ruth, or as her foster mom calls her "Miss Ruth" , has been featured as our pet of the week but hasn't found a home yet.  We are hoping that by featuring her again someone will want to come meet her, fall in love with her, and want to take her home. She has lived in two foster homes and spent time at Petsmart and as much as her foster mom loves her, she knows Miss Ruth's  forever home is long overdue. When Miss Ruth's mom was rescued by A C Paw over two years ago, she was pregnant and gave birth to four kittens.  Baby Ruth's  mom and siblings were adopted, but Baby Ruth is still with us and we are not sure why because she is such a sweet girl.  She is a two year old short hair grey tabby. Because she is a Manx, she is tail-less just like her mom.  Miss Ruth is very gentle, well behaved and loves to have her back scratched.  She is playful, creative and so entertaining she will keep you laughing all day.  She loves people and her foster mom says she is just a joy to have around the house.  Baby Ruth first lived in a foster home with other cats and dogs. She did not do well with other animals, so we feel she would do best in a home where she is the one and only. She will require a special moist food diet, which is a small thing to ask for a kitty that has so much love to give in return. You can meet Miss Ruth this weekend during our adoption hours at Petsmart, or for more information about Baby Ruth,  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.


From the Charlevoix Humane Society


 This is Antoinette, also known as Nettie.  She came to us as a stray, and after some tender loving medical care she is up and ready for adoption. Nettie is just a tad bit overweight, but she has started a diet, and will
try to be svelte when she finds her "forever" home. Nettie will have to be an inside cat because she is front and rear declawed.




 Bentley is a very sweet guy who just loves to around people .  He seems to be housebroken and he seems to get along with other dogs.  Bentley loves to go for long walks.

The Charlevoix Human Society's mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious.
