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 Spike, and I know it's your typical cartoon dog name, but I rather like it. Not that I've been watching much television lately, however I've seen enough in my short life to recognize the name. It sort of gives me character, ha ha. Anyway, I'm a lab mix and I'm a happy enough guy who loves everybody, but it sure would be nice to meet my future playmates. I have a lot of energy, so active dogs usually enjoy my company more than passive ones. I'll also need a crate for quiet times because sometimes I just don't know when to stop playing. But if you're an active home and need a dog that can keep up with you, then please come see me soon. Sure, I may have a name like a cartoon character, but I'm the funny guy that everyone loves. Since I've been at the shelter for quite some time, I have been made a member of the Lonely Hearts Club which means I have a reduced adoption fee of $75!

Sammie is an easy going cat who enjoys chasing toys around and napping in the sun. She is 3 years old spayed, up to date on shots and tested negative for FeLV and FIV. Indoor home only please.
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.

Hawkeye is a four year old neutered male Beagle Bassett Hound who is just adorable. He has been through the prison training program and passed with flying colors. Hawkeye knows the commands sit, stay, down, come and leave it. Because of that training, we would like to find him his forever home quickly so he does not lose all the valuable lessons that he has learned over the 17 weeks that he was there. When he was younger, Hawkeye was run over by a car and he broke his pelvic bone, but that is healed. However, he does seem to have a weak back leg that bothers him when he is out in the cold too much. Hawkeye is a happy dog and just wants to be around you and your family.
He can get a little apprehensive meeting new dogs, but he quickly warms up and seems to do well around them. If you are interested in a companion dog that is happy and just wants to be with you why don’t you come and spend some time with our Hawkeye.
The Charlevoix Human Society's mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious.

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).

What a coincidence! Jenka is a 7 Year old Vizsla here at AuSable Valley Animal Shelter who is finally feeling ready to meet the family of her dreams. She wants to be an only child, because she doesn’t want to share her food and her love with anyone but you. She is afraid of loud noises, especially mortar fire and thunder, so she needs a pet parent who will let her hide in a safe, comfortable place until the ruckus is over. Jenka can be on edge when meeting new people, but when she loves you, her heart is yours forever. She is up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped, and spayed. Jenka wants to be with somebody who will be able to give her the time and consideration she needs, and who loves to get that leash out and take her to smell the world! For more information about Jenka, For more information, call (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: email@example.com
