Hi there, my name is Blue, which I guess is appropriate because I’m a six-year-old Blue Heeler who is looking for a forever home. Before I arrived in northern Michigan, I found myself in a shelter all the way down south. Sadly, a hurricane separated me from my previous family which left me homeless and very sad. If that wasn’t enough, I later found out that I had heartworm disease. Fortunately, I should heal just fine with the treatment I have received, but I need to be kept quiet and calm until I recover. This will mean that I am on activity restriction with short leash walks only and lots of quiet time. I’m a very loving, smart boy who enjoys attention. I’m proud to say that I’m potty trained and I know my basic commands. I’m an all-around agreeable boy who enjoys relaxing around the house. The only catch is I have a bit of a jealous streak, (I don’t like sharing attention!) so I really need to be in a home without any other pets (no cats), or another dog that allows me to be in charge. I have a very strong herding instinct, so a home with lots of space would be ideal. I’m a good boy who needs a second chance and I just know I can prove I deserve that!
Hi I’m Brownie, I’m a big beautiful girl with lots of love to give. I came to the shelter with my two sisters and brother Lilly, Nattie, and Lancey and we are quite bonded to each other and it would make me so happy if I could be adopted with one of my siblings to feel more comfortable in my new forever home. I think once you meet us it would be hard to not want to adopt all four of us, we are quite the adorable and funny bunch of cats. I love to get pets and will rub up against your leg and ask for all the lovins and snuggles. Funny thing is once one of my siblings starts getting pets all the rest of us will swarm you and ask for pets too, its quite funny. I hope you’ll fill out an application and come meet me and my fluffy and lovable siblings real soon.

but has never been around dogs, so a slow introduction would be necessary. She does play a little rough so a home with no small children would be best. Nina will be the perfect cat for the right family that is willing to be patient and allow her to learn to feel safe in her new surroundings. She is a very pretty girl, mostly white with tabby markings. She is 4 1/2 years old.
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.

Gronk is my new name, but not my disposition. I am a bit leery of people at first, but sweet and loyal with a bit of time. I recently lost part of my tail because I never stop wagging it and beat the end of it to a pulp. I may have suffered some frostbite as well, so be aware that I much prefer to be inside when it’s nasty. Give me a chance to get to know you, I am a good guy. Gronk appears to avoid conflict with other dogs but is certainly interested in the playful interactions. Gronk is a big boy so probably not the best fit for a family with very young children.

Muppet is a special girl. This 35 pound Pit mix is 8 years old and not at all brave. She is affectionate and sweet but has quite a bit of anxiety. She is not nippy but likes quiet people and quiet places. Muppet really feels most comfortable in the company of other dogs so a canine companion is rather essential for her. She is looking for a home with someone who can not only help her feel secure but also just let her be herself. Muppet’s person recently passed away so she came to the shelter in hopes of finding another person to love and care for her. This sweet little lady has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.
If you are interested in adopting, please contact the shelter via EMAIL ONLY (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request an application and set up an appointment.
