My name is Bailey and I’m a one and a half year old Catahoula Leopard dog mix. I’m a pretty big girl weighing in at 74lbs. Even though I’m a very sweet dog, I suffer from separation anxiety. I would like a home where someone is around most of the day. I love the outdoors, so a fenced in yard would be great, though not a necessity. I do very well in the house, in fact, when I’m not outside, I occasionally turn into a couch potato. You may want to take me for walks to make sure I don’t become a mushy potato. I’m good with other dogs, but would enjoy meeting any new companions before I make a commitment. Cats are an absolute no for me! My last home had cats and they had to bring me back to the shelter because I could not be trusted to share my space with other furry little critters. And as far as children go, I’m okay with the little tykes. My last family said I like to swim and play fetch. I know a lot of basic commands and I like to ride in the car. If you’re looking for a great family dog, come visit me soon!
My name is Nattie and I’m a lovely five year old longhair tortoiseshell cat that came from a home not too long ago. I lived there with my best buds in the whole world; Brownie, Lancey and Lilly. We could be related, but who knows for sure and it really doesn’t matter as far as I’m concerned. The important thing to know is that we are bonded to each other and would love to share a new home as a family. However, we totally understand that that’s not always possible. So the next best thing would be if we could be adopted in pairs. I’m not fussy about who lives with me because I get along splendidly with all of my friends, and I believe that they feel the same way about me. We haven’t been around other cats, but we’re all good natured and easy going, so maybe it would be okay to have new friends. Dogs and small children are not to our liking, so maybe a home without them would be a better fit for us. I don’t want to brag, but it is an enlightening experience when you spend some time with us. We each have our own unique personality, yet blend perfectly together as a group. We take care of each other and share the attention that is given us. I hope you will take the time to come enjoy our company. Many purrs await you, Nattie

I love to play with feather toys, snuggle with my people, and hang out basking in the sun through my window perch.
Jingle balls are my absolute FAVORITE!
I take my time getting to know my new friends and most days I prefer to stick to myself. It may take me a bit to become comfortable in a new space, but once I do, I take over! Couch naps, dog bed snuggles, window perching, and warm laps to enjoy are all great activities in my book.
I am currently in foster, loving all this attention. My foster family has taught me how to trust, play, and love. I would love a forever adoptive family who can offer me the same patience and care.
I have done great with my foster dog sibling but it took a lot of work before I was able to accept her love too.
If you are looking for a cat with a huge personality, I AM YOUR MAN!

Meet Sparky! Sparky is a six year old shepherd/pit mix. He is a big, goofy boy who loves to play outside and get attention. When you first look at him, you instantly fall in love with him because of his ears that don’t quite know what to do. Sparky doesn’t get along with other dogs or children, so he has to be an only pet in the home with children 16 or older. He doesn’t seem to bark too much, mostly when he wants your attention, food or the other dogs start barking. Sparky loves playing ball, so as long as you have a ball in hand he is a very photogenic boy.

Nia is a very beautiful and affectionate 3 1/2 year old Pit Bull mix. She loves to cuddle and play with her toys and play in the yard with her people. She is not comfortable with strangers and may be protective of her owners because she is so affectionate. We would like to find Nia a home as an only pet with adults who could give her the attention she needs and a safe place where she wouldn’t encounter strangers. She has a very kind disposition and seems to bond well with people that she considers family. This is the dog that would be next to you on the couch watching a movie. Nia has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. If you have questions about Nia or would like an adoption application, please contact the shelter via email at email@example.com.

Birch is a 5 year old Blue Tick Coon Hound. She is spayed, chipped and UTD on shots, adoption fee $90.00. Birch came to us as a stray, so we do not know her temperament with other dogs, cats or kids. For a hound, Birch really does not bark or howl very much. She is a very friendly and sweet gal! Seems to be pretty much house trained, walks ok on leash. Not really sure how she is with car rides, being crated or recall off leash.
Please visit their website at cheboyganhumanesociety.org. Or stop by the shelter at 1535 Hackleburg Road, Cheboygan. Call 231-238-8221 for more information. Shelter hours are Mon-Fri 9-4pm and Saturday noon-4pm.
