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!
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.
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.

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.
