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


Life has thrown some interesting surprises my way throughout my two years, and luckily I was able to deal with them all, that is until now. Yep, I made it through puppyhood and adolescence and even motherhood, but the one thing I'm having a difficult time dealing with is the loss of my family. Their circumstances changed-lifestyle is what I heard-therefore my life changed too. I'm recently retired from being a mom and now it looks like I'll be needing a new forever home. I'm a lovely Retriever/Husky mix with a sweet disposition once I get over my shyness of strangers. It has been reported that I can get into trouble when left alone, so a crate would be a good idea when you're not at home. I don't mind other dogs at all, but let's have a meet and greet just to make sure. Cats and children are okay too, but if your kids are too young they may not understand my timid behavior. So I hope this time around all my surprises are good and will last forever.




Uno, dos, tres--that’s how quickly I hope it’ll take me to find a new home! Hello, my name is Uno, a handsome 12 week old kitten who can’t wait to find a new family! I’m a sweet little guy, though perhaps a bit shy at first. Once I get to know you, however, I’m sure we’ll become fast friends. Stop by for a visit with me, and I’ll count the number of reasons why you should make me your newest family member!

Cherryland Humane Society




This is Mabel and the staff gushes about how sweet this gal is! She was found abandoned, tied to a log in a public hiking area and had lost quite a bit of weight and we are working on getting her girlish figure back. Mabel is about 10 years old but still loves to go out and explore the world. She is hoping to be more pampered in her golden years! Mabel would be so grateful for a place to feel safe for the rest of her life.
Come in for a visit or you can check her out on our website, CherrylandHumane.org.

AC PAWS
 
 
 
BOOST aka BOO is a very handsome guy! He was found stray in a local trailer park.  He is a very laid back kitty that will be scared and shy going into a new home, but once he feels safe, he is such a great cat that loves to be with you and be petted. He is a very large boy, a two year old black short haired kitty with the most beautiful eyes. He is not an agressive cat and can be easily intimidated by more agressive cats. We feel he would do best in an adult home as he has not been around small children. Boo is in a foster home. If you would like to adopt or meet him,  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.

 

With A Little Help From My Friends

 

Nadine is a good name for me--exotic, not just your run of the mill tuxedo cat name. I am only 3 and have lots of good years left to give and receive the love I crave. I am very sociable and kind and would love to meet you sometime! I been spayed, an up to date 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.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society


 
 
Shellie is a six year old Lab mix, golden in color and just a smidgen over weight.  Shellie was an owner surrender. (Family has been hit with some very serious financial issues). She is such a lover.  She wants to be around you whether you are going for a walk or just sitting watching TV.  Shellie is obviously house trained because she keeps her kennel so clean.  She did come from a home that had dogs and cats, so we think she would do great with both.  If you are looking for a dog that that would fit into just about any lifestyle than Shellie would be a great choice.

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.
