From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter

Hi everyone, my name is Dutchess and I'm a young Retriever mix in need of a loving home. I came from a dog hoarding situation, so you know I'm used to other dogs. I haven't been around cats too much, but I'm sure I can learn to like them-in a good way hopefully. I come with free training so I can learn all about basic manners and other useful stuff that my new family will appreciate. Because I'm only ten months old, I'm young enough to learn whatever you want to teach me. I'm also very clean in my kennel, so no worries about that issue. I hope you can find the time to come see me, sometimes I'm a little shy when I meet strangers, but I warm up very quickly. I look forward to having a forever home that's not so crowded.

My name is Caroline and I'm another one of those statistics, a young cat having kittens. Someone didn't care enough about me to have me fixed, so I raised a family of fine little kittens. No more though, I'm finished with being a mom, and you can't imagine how much I'm looking forward to just being a loving pet to a wonderful family. My dream is to hang out in a warm sunny window, or on the back of a sofa watching my favorite programs on the television with you, or maybe curled up on your lap while you read. Sigh, it's such a wonderful dream and I hope you can make it come true for me. I promise many purrs and kisses in return.

 We are featuring six buddies this week and Punkin and Spice are two of them. The two sisters had been abandoned in the woods.
A caring lady who lived nearby found them along with one other litter mate, Nero, who has found his forever home.  She contacted A C Paw and said she would foster them if we could help her find them all a home. Punkin and Spice are two very sweet young kitties.  Both are gentle and loving.  They love to be brushed and they love to snuggle.  Spice has a white nose.  She is more energenic. Punkin has
A musical purr. Both are fine with kids, dogs and other cats.   These beautiful girls are long hair Calicos. They are two years old.  Their foster mom wants them to stay together and be
Adopted to the same home. They would be very sad if apart.  You can meet Punkin and Spice at Petsmart.  We have a special buddies adoption fee of $150.00 for the two, so all our buddies can stay together.

Hello, I'm Viola, a 7 month old Russian Blue.  I love playtime with my cat friends at the shelter and I love snuggle time with the volunteers that spend time with me.  If you think you can open your heart and home, I would love to be your companion.
