From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter
I hear National Puppy Day is coming up, so what better way to celebrate than to adopt a puppy?? And if I’m being honest, I’m hoping that it may be me! I’m just a little guy, only 12 weeks old, and I’m here looking for a new home. Hmmm, what can I tell you about me? For starters I guess a name would be good! My name is Oso, and I’m a shepherd mix who is very friendly and playful. I love snuggling and giving kisses-what more could you want of from a new puppy?? Come meet me soon-hopefully I won’t be here long!

Tyke was a stray that came to AC PAW in 2016. In his foster home, he started out timid, easily spooked, and hiding in a box in a closet. With time and acceptance, Tyke has become a talkative guy with his foster folks, Jan and Sam.
He loves to have his head scratched, give playful love bites and likes to spend the evening in their laps. He’s a cute, slightly quirky, non-dominant companionable cat. Tyke’s fosters discovered he has an allergy that requires a prescription good and daily steroid pills. As long
as he eats the right food, he is a pretty low-maintenance pet. The amount of care he requires is small compared to the love he has to give you in return. Tyke is a very handsome four year old black and white cat. He is a very good-natured kitty who would be a wonderful friend and companion. He had a very rough start in life and deserves this second chance to have a loving, forever home. If you would like to adopt Tyke, or for more information, go to ACPaw.org and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society
Buffy came to us from Van Buren county, Michigan through our shelter outreach program. 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.
The Charlevoix Human Society’s mission is to practice and promote the principle that every life is precious.

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter
My name is Gina and I’m a 3 year old mixed breed dog. I love people and most dogs but cats are a different story. I think they are a bit jealous of how adorable and cute I am so they’re kind of mean to me. I mean, I can’t help it that I’m so cute. I like to pick my own friends because then I can see if they’re nice enough or if they’re going to be mean. You don’t want my cuteness to go away, do you? One of my favorite things to do is go for a good, long walk. Let’s face it. Exercise is good for both of us. It will be more fun because we’re doing it together. I’m a very loving dog with a lot of good things in my heart. I will never give up on you, so please don’t give up on me! I hope you can make me a part of your family soon!.
For more information about Gina, please call the shelter at (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
