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

There's a little of this and a little of that mixed into my Labrador breeding, so the result is an interesting girl like me with a beautiful Black and Tan coat and a happy disposition that any family would be proud of. I'm five and a half years old and I get along well most dogs-you're more than welcome to bring in your furry pal to make sure we'll be compatible. No cats however, there's nothing I like better than a good cat chase. Children would be okay as long as they respect my maturing age. I sure hope there's a forever home in my near future, because a sweet girl like me needs a family to love ASAP.

As you can see from my photo, I'm not a happy camper! My new name is Keekee and I was a found as a stray. It's evident that my previous family didn't want me since they didn't come looking for me and that saddens my heart; hence my unhappy face. I'ts not easy to start over, especially for a cat that is seven months old, but I'm doing my best to adjust. I'll need a quiet home with a family that has a lot of compassion for a girl like me. It may take awhile for me to feel comfortable in a new home, but in time I will.

 Barker had been adopted from AC PAW in January 2016, but apparently the adopter no longer wanted him as he was found wandering stray in Antrim County.  All attempts to locate his owner have failed.  We don't understand it because Barker is a friendly, lovable guy. We don't know how long Barker had been outside on his own, but he seems very happy to be back inside warm, safe and well fed. Barker would do best as a one and only in his new home. A quiet adult home would be best for him.  Come meet Barker at Petsmart. We know you will fall in love with him.  If you would like to adopt them, 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.

These animals came from loving homes who ran out of options and had to relinquish their pet to animal control.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society

Izzy has had a rough start in her life.  She had spent her entire life on the chain until she was rescued by a shelter downstate. We brought her to our shelter and she has been fitting in and doing great!!
When you talk to Izzy, her butt just goes off with the greatest wiggle.  She truly is attentive and wants to please. We are looking for an active person or family that has  the love and patience to help her become the best inside dog. She is very intelligent so we know she can be trained with the right motivation. Please consider our Izzy if you would love to have many years of  companionship and love.
