Heather’s Hounds


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

One day the circumstances changed in my family and everyone needed to relocate, including me. It was a very sad day for everyone. And even though I’m a little confused about all the change in my life; like most Jack Russell’s I’m good about bouncing back. My name is Poppy and I’m an adorable one year old Jack Russell mix, although I look like the real thing. I have a lot of personality and energy, so I’ll need a home that can accommodate both. I like to chase cats, squirrels and birds and probably any other little creature that will play, I mean run from me. I’ll also need to be crated if you are gone for long periods of time, otherwise I get creative about entertaining myself. Hey, in reality I’m still a puppy and we all know what that can be like. However, my preference is someone who is home a lot because I like the company and attention. I was around children and other dogs, so I’m good with both, but I would like to meet them before I move in. If you are a Jack Russell fan, then I sure hope you will be visiting me soon.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society

Buffy came to us from Van Buren county, Michigan through our shelter outreach program. Buffy has been in our shelter since December.

She is a high energy, bouncy and very playful girl. She would do best in a home without small children, but probably a great companion for teens and pre-teens. She is super loving and craves a good belly rub. Buffy would really shine with an active family and a great big yard to run and play. She can act tough but has been very accepting of other dogs. Buffy is ready to go, fully vetted and micro-chipped. Come see her today.

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. For more information on pets that are available for adoption or to donate, visit the shelter at 614 Beardsley Street in Boyne City or online at www.charlevoixhumane.org

 

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

My name is Pinky, and I am an adorable four-year-old terrier mix. I was a mama, but I’d like to be someone’s baby. I want an active family who loves to be outside. My fur is whiter than snow, and my eyes are as brown as a bar of milk chocolate. I love going to dog parks, but walking there is my favorite. I love other dogs, and another thing I would love is you to adopt me!

For more information, please call the shelter at (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: avascares@yahoo.com

GRAYSON’S ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN SPONSORED BY THE HURD FAMILY!!!

Grayson is still looking for his perfect new home! His adoption fee is reduced to $25.00, he is neutered, chipped and UTD on shots. Grayson is very shy at times. He loves to go for long walks and be outside. We have differing stories as to whether he is good with kids or other dogs. Kids we are not 100% sure about, dogs, he went to a home over a year ago with another dog and did just fine with him. So we require meet and greets with every dog adoption if there is a dog currently in a potential adopters home. He is a very friendly and sweet boy, just needs a home where he can be inside and outside and walked daily if there is not a fenced in yard.

Please visit their website at cheboyganhumanesociety.org. Or stop by the shelter at 1535 Hackleburg Road, Cheboygan. Call 231-238-8221 for more information. Shelter hours are Mon-Fri 9-4pm and Saturday noon-4pm.
