From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter

Little Traverse Bay Veterinary Clinic remains open, but we encourage clients who have non-essential appointments to reschedule if possible.
My name is Scruffy and I was a rescue dog and trust me it wasn’t a moment too soon. My health wasn’t the best since I tested positive for heartworm. I’ve been treated for the pesky little varmints and now my health has radically improved. I’m a very friendly guy once I get over my initial shyness with strangers, however my desire for attention usually overrides my timidity. I would like to meet any children if you have some and cats are okay as long as they keep their distance, but to be frank, my idea of a perfect home doesn’t have any children or feline friends. And absolutely no dogs; I’ll need to be your only canine. Even when we go for walks you’ll have to be cautious of other dogs, and the people walking them. I’m working diligently on this issue, and the staff here keeps telling me what a quick learner and good boy I am. Even though I’m doing better, my dislike of other dogs may never go away, but just because I don’t like dogs doesn’t mean that I won’t love you with all I have to offer. Sure, I may have had a rough beginning the first year of my life, but I know with your love and attention my forever years are going to be the best.

Smokey has been at CHS for 120+ days. Please consider adopting an older animal, as we currently have 13 cats that are over the age of 8. They deserve to live the rest of their lives in a peaceful, comfortable and loving environment. The love they give back to you is endless.
Hi! My name is Smokey and I am the sweetest boy you will ever meet! I
absolutely love being petted and thoroughly enjoy a gentle massage. I will reward
you with a delightful purr and my beautiful eyes will look right into your soul.
“Temptation” treats are my absolute favorite and I also enjoy catnip. I’m on a special diet and need some extra care but that just makes me more lovable! Please come see me soon so we can spend “furrever” together!

Help From My Friends
Emmy is a petite girl who has a very quiet meow. She loves to sit beside you, or if you are lucky, on your lap or chest and nuzzle you. She loves being petted, being lavished upon, making big biscuits with her paws, breakfast time, catnip mice and watching the birds out the window. A quiet, adult home with no children or dogs will be best for her as loud noises and fast movements do scare her. She would be fine with another non-aggressive cat. Emmy is beautiful and loving. She will make the perfect little princess for just the right someone. Come meet Emmy at PetSmart. She is a black, domestic long hair kitty who loves being brushed. She is eight years old. If you would like to adopt Emmy, please call the center at (231) 533-4070. For more information visit helpfrommyfriends.org
From the Charlevoix Humane Society
Meet Manzio, this young fella is a work in progress. He will melt in your arms and smother you with affection and desire for interaction. Manzio does have a drawback, he can easily clear an 8 foot fence. We believe this is because he doesn’t want to be alone, once over the fence and in with other dogs he seems content and stays put. He loves the other dogs and would like to play all day. We believe an invisible fence with collar would contain this leaper because he seems very compliant and just needs somebody. Everybody needs somebody, what about you?
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 Eva and I am a loving, sweet, 3 1/2 year old mixed breed dog that is looking for an awesome home to call mine. There are so many good reasons that I would be the best friend you’ll ever need. First, I’m young enough so that I can be your life partner forever. I’ll always be by your side. Next, I have lots of energy and I am very playful. I will definitely keep you healthy by exercising and playing with you every day. I would like for you to be very energetic but any type of energy works. Also, I really don’t like kitties. To me, they are just squeaky stuffed toys. But who needs kitties? I am so loving and sweet though, you won’t need anyone else as your best friend fur-ever!
For more information, please call the shelter at (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: email@example.com
