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

Walker is my name and finding a forever home is my goal. I'm an Australian Cattle dog mix, a rather large one, which means I have a big loving heart that I'd like to share with you. I was once a stray and boy am I glad that someone cared enough to rescue me. Living out on the streets by myself was not my idea of a good time. To be honest, even though I'm a big guy, I was scared. But now that I'm safe and have this wonderful temporary home, I can relax and think about my future living with a new forever family. I'm only two years old so I have plenty of energy should you be looking for an active dog. I would like to meet any new pals that I may be living with, because I'm so fussy about room mates. I don't like to share my stuff, including food so you'll have to be careful at feeding time. And for this same reason I wouldn't do well living with small children. And did I mention cats? I cannot be trusted with those critters, so absolutely no cats for me! I may need to be an only dog in my new forever home. You'll just have to come meet me to see if we're a match.

Unfortunately, I'm not a socialite. No sirree, I'm a guy that likes peace and quiet without interruptions, loud noises, or stressful activity. Give me a warm chair to curl up on and soft background music, or a even a good TV show, and I'll be very happy cat indeed. My name is Munster, by the way, and I know I'm only seven months old, which seems young for a cat to be set in his ways, but life was rough at the beginning and maybe I'll change my ways in time, but for now this is how I feel. If you think we'd be a good match, then please don't hesitate to come see me. No purrs await you, Munster.

 Tootsie is one of six cats AC PAW rescued this winter that had been living in a carport.  She is believed to have had two litters of kittens.  She loved having a warm bed to sleep in and plenty to eat in her foster home after fending for herself outside in the cold. Tootsie is a very gentle, loving girl who loves to be petted.  She is a two year old black medium hair kitty with the most beautiful eyes.
You can meet Tootsie at Petsmart. If you would like to adopt Tootsie,please contact www.acpaw.org
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.


With A Little Help From My Friends


Boom is 3 years old and ready for a great home! This handsome cat is neutered, up to date on shots and tested negative for FeLV and FIV. Indoor home only please.

With a Little Help From My Friends’ Pet Crisis Center assists Antrim County Animal Control by taking in primarily owner relinquished pets due to a crisis in the family. These animals came from loving homes who ran out of options and had to relinquish their pet to animal control. This is not a place for the public to bring in a pet but it is a place for the public to visit and adopt. Volunteers welcome.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society

Samson is very playful, but he has not figured out he is a big dog, so whoever adopts this gentle giant, we would suggest professional training to make this dog the perfect new family member.
He keeps his kennel clean,  loves to play outside and has made friends with most of the other dogs.
We would suggest a place to run, fenced in yard and lots of playtime.
Samson is just a puppy in a big dog body.  We can’t wait to find him his forever home.

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 Northern Michigan Animal Rescue Network

Howdy folks! O’Malley is my name and though I may look like every other red tabby in the world, I've got my very own unique personality and lots of it. I’m six years old and weigh in at 12 pounds of solid muscle, but I’m a lover, not a fighter. My foster Mom calls me her sweet boy and my favorite place is curled up on her lap or, if that’s not available, on the bed next to her pillow. I can be a bit shy around new people until I get to know them. I LOVE to be brushed and will take all the attention and pampering you’ve got to give. To meet O'Malley in his foster home, call or message the NMARN rescue line 231-238-PAWS (7297).

Northern Michigan Animal Rescue Network is an all volunteer 5013C group dedicated to finding homes for homeless animals in Northern Michigan. Their animals live in foster homes and are loved everyday while they find the perfect forever homes for their dogs and cats. To learn more about NMARN, visit them online at www.nmarn.org

You will fall in love with him! For more information, call (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: avascares@yahoo.com
