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

Looking for a sweet dog that is perfect in almost every way? Then maybe we have something in common, because I just happen to be looking for the almost perfect forever family. I realize no one is totally perfect, but we like to think that we’re pretty darn close and I’m all for that. My name is Gigi and I’m a four year old Rottweiler mix in need of a loving home without cats. Cats are my weakness, they bring out the naughtiness in me. Other than that I’m a great dog. I even like car rides! However, I may need to meet your other dog before we make any commitments. Once in a while I find a canine that doesn’t agree with me, but for the most part I’m usually friendly with everyone-except for cats that is, please don’t forget about that. If you could just take a few moments to come visit with me, I could give you a demonstration of my charming personality. I hope to see you soon.


Having come from a home with way too many cats, I decided that more space in which to roam is the way to go. At first I was a little anxious about moving to LTBHS, but now that I’ve settled in with only a few of my relations with me, I decided that it’s not so bad after all. I’m very comfortable now and I’m enjoying all of the attention given to me, Figaro. I’m only two years old can hardly wait to find a new forever home.
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.

GINNY was a stray that was found very pregnant while taking care of three older kittens. She’s the definition of a ‘Momma Bear”.
She was a wonderful mom who is definitely ready for lots of love and R & R after having two back to back litters. She is a very talkative, but very gentle, easy going, calm kitty. She loves to be in the middle of everything and just hang out with you. She will be
a wonderful addition to any family. Ginny has been around small children and a small dog. She is a 1 1/2 year old short hair very cute brown tabby.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society

Meet our girl Fancy. She is a four year old Treeing Walker Coonhound that came in as a stray. She seems happiest when outside and her nose to the ground. This breed is considered to be a family friendly breed. Fancy walks very well on a leash so we think she would make and excellent member of an active family. We do feel you would need to have some kind of fencing in place because of her instinct to go on scent.
The Charlevoix Human Society’s mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious. As such, we are committed to the highest principles of humane care and professional treatment of injured, ill, neglected or abused animals.

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

My name is Snickers and I am a two year old mixed breed dog. There are several reasons that you will want to adopt me. First, I am very sweet just like my name! It will be like having your very own candy bar to love and snuggle all the time! What’s better than that? I have a lot of puppy energy so I will keep you healthy while we exercise. Look exercising is hard by yourself. Wouldn’t you want to tell your friends that you just finished a great workout with a Snickers? I have a pretty good start with commands but I will still need you to work with me so that I will be the best-behaved dog in the neighborhood. I will be a good protector because I love you and I’m sure in no time at all you will fall madly in love with me and I will be your Snickers.

For more information, please call the shelter at (989) 348-4117 or e-mail:

From Cheboygan County Humane Society

Buddy is a 9 year old Labrador, neutered, chipped and UTD on shots, adoption fee $90.00. Buddy is great with and protective of kids we are told, not good with cats, and is hit or miss with if he is good with dogs or not. Buddy does have food/treat aggression, so being the only dog in his new home is a must. Buddy is a runner so will need to be on restraint at all times outside unless in a fenced in yard. He does know a few basic commands, is house, leash and crate trained. Very treat driven!
