Pet of the Week 2020

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

Special notice: due to the coronavirus, the shelter is closed to the public and adoptions are by appointment only. Daycare services are also suspended until further notice. Boarding and grooming is by appointment only and we are offering curbside pickup service for your pet. Little Traverse Bay Veterinary Clinic remains open, but we encourage clients who have non-essential appointments to reschedule if possible.

Hi! My name is Brownie and I am a 3 year old Boxer mix. I came to LTBHS from a local shelter and I am so excited to have a family of my own! Everyone here loves my happy personality and I would love to find a home that will take me for lots of walks and hikes since I am quite energetic. I also really enjoy having dog friends, I have not met a cat face to face yet so I am not sure how I feel about them! Because of my energy level, and since I do like to jump, I would probably do best in a home with older children that I could play with. I am learning all kinds of things here at the shelter, they say I am smart as well as handsome, so I would love to have a home that will continue teaching me manners. Please come and meet me to see if I might be a good furry addition to your family!


Are you looking for a sweet, flurry kitten to join your family? Then look no further since I meet that description. My name is Alpine and I’m only 10 weeks old–just the right age to find my forever family I think! I’m in foster care with a lot of other cats, but I hope to be available for adoption soon.
The LTBHS located on West Conway Road, between Petoskey and Harbor Springs is a no kill shelter that helps find homes for over 500 dogs and cats each year. The LTBHS is completely funded thru donations. All pets adopted from LTBHS are neutered and have received a vet check and shots.

My name is Piper and I demand a foster or forever home!  I’m three years old and I know what I want.  I’ve got green eyes that always make people look twice at me. I don’t mind, as long as they give me some space to do my own thing. I love exploring, looking out the window, playing, and snuggles and pets when I am in the mood.  I’m the kind of cat that will give you your space, and you can give me mine.  I do like to talk, and I have a beautiful voice that is sure to make you smile! Please call the humane society to inquire more, if you think we’d be good pals

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

Do you see my smiling face? My name is Breeze and I am three year old Staffordshire Terrier Mix. I have a very fun personality and I’m sure that I will provide you with hours of entertainment. I am a real sweetheart and I know you will fall in love with me as soon as you see me. I will make a wonderful family dog. I get along really well with kids and other dogs. My most favorite thing to do is chase squirrels. I just love the thrill of the chase! I mean who wouldn’t love chasing squirrels? They are like fast and fun little toys to me. I guess having a fenced in yard would be the best thing for me. You may have noticed that I may be a little on the short side but I am a true lover at heart. We can cuddle every night on the couch or in bed. I absolutely LOVE being scratched behind my ears. Yep! That is the best scratching spot ever! If I seem to fit your family and you are looking to add a new member to your family, then look no further! I’m the one you’ve been waiting for! Please come to the shelter to adopt me soon!
