My name is Sam and I am a very unique man. I came from a little bit of a hard situation up north, but the staff here at the shelter is getting me all better. I had a bit of work done on my eyes to help me see a little better and that’s going to help me out so much. Despite my eye issues, I am ready to take on the world. I’m very active and will need a little work, but I do like the attention of being trained so that’s going to very helpful when you take me home. Fill out an application here online to start the process of getting me into your home. Can’t wait to meet you.





Hello, my name is Ellery and I’m a three year old cat with plenty of mothering experience. What a relief it is to know that your young ones have grown up and made you proud. However, I’m thankful that I can finally retire from that laborious job. Unfortunately, my years of motherhood has given me a protective personality, so that I’m always on my guard with other cats and dogs. I find it difficult to relate with them. Therefore, I may need to be the only pet in your home. Maybe in time this will change, but for now that’s the way it is. So if you’re looking for a single cat to be your loyal companion, then I’m the girl for you. Just ask for Ellery, I’ll be waiting.

Name: Hendrix
Info: Male, pitt mix, 1 Year
Days At the Shelter: 60 days
History:  stray
Description: Hendrix here!

Oh boy oh boy, are you ready to play and have fun every single day?
I am a playful goofball searching for an active family who can manage my strength.
My tip top shape keeps me agile and ready to go!
Toys are one of my favorite things. Tennis balls, rope toys, squeakers… they are all the best!
Even though I am strong and active, I can be quite the gentle social sweetheart.
With a lil bit of training and socialization, I will make for a wonderful best friend and companion.
I am a bit stressed at the shelter, so I can come across a bit bossy towards other dogs. I must meet any new dog friends before heading home.
No kitty cats please.

EFFIE was found nearly frozen in a parking lot. She was in vet care for two months as they nursed her back to health. She lost parts of her ears and tail to frostbite, but her AC PAW foster mom says that just makes
her cuter. While she’s a bit skittish at first, she warms up quickly then she is definitely a lover who cuddles in bed at night, wants to be near her people, and will push her head into your hand for head scratches.
She loves one on one attention. Effie likes her toys and her food. She does get nervous when it’s loud and busy. She likes small dogs and kids with a quiet introduction. She is not fond of big dogs, but she will tolerate them. Her lovely long fur will need brushing to keep it smooth. Effie is a sweetheart. She is two years old.
If you would like to talk to their foster for more information, go to our website at and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. Their foster mom will contact you.

AC PAW was founded in 1995 to give animals a second chance at life. The non-profit, no-kill shelter started as a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease and death. AC PAW has now rescued over 6,000 animals in the northern Michigan region and services the five-county Grand Traverse area.

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

Oscar is a 4-and-a-half-year-old small Husky who’s active and loves the outdoors. Oscar is a little shy at first…but once he gets to know you, he’s happy to show off his charming personality.

Oscar knows a few basic commands, but he can’t seem to leave the cats alone…so a home without felines would be best. Oscar is a natural born singer who’ll share his talents with anyone who’ll listen. Oscar has been neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped! If you have questions about Oscar, please call the shelter at (989) 348-4117.
