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

Hello! We come as a pair, so allow us to introduce ourselves. We are Chanel and FeFe and we were living in a home until our circumstances changed. Now we find ourselves looking for a new forever home. We are both very loving and sweet, but will benefit from being crate trained so we don't have any accidents in the house. With the right family and lots of love and patience, I know we can be your best dogs ever!


If you’re looking for a feline friend who is both handsome and funny, then look no further. Well, maybe I’m not quite as entertaining as my namesake, but I can certainly do a great job of cheering you up when you’re feeling down! Not to mention, I have a cute little mustache that adds to my charm. I’m only two years old, which is the perfect age in cat years, in my opinion. Mature enough to be done with all that kitten mischief, but young enough to still play and be a great companion to my new family members. Hopefully I’ll find them soon!

The LTBHS located on West Conway Road, between Petoskey and Harbor Springs is a no kill shelter that helps find  homes for over 500 dogs and cats each year. The LTBHS is completely funded thru donations. All pets adopted from LTBHS are neutered and have received a vet check and shots.

We do not know Boo's start in life. He was found stray in a local trailer park.  Boo now enjoys being an indoor foster cat.  He does very well with other cats, but he can be easily intimidated by more agressive cats...even though he is bigger than most of them.  We feel Boo would do best in an adult home as he has not been around small children. He is a very laid back cat who may be shy at first going into a new home, but it won't take long before he will be next to you wanting to be petted and have his belly rubbed.  Boo is a black short haired guy with 'sleepy eyes". He is so handsome!  For  more information, 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.

Help From My Friends


Yoda: My name speaks volumes about my personality. I am wise and insightful mind which, combined with my wide-eyed view of the world, make me completely irresistible. I love to play and if I could only have a fur sibling in a home of my own, I would so love to share my wisdom with him or her. Around here it is hard to get anyone to listen to my philosophical musings, will you? 

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.

Jack is a neutered male lab husky mix around 4.5 years old.  He is a sweet dog that gets along with kids and other dogs but we don't know if he is good with cats.  Jack has been indoors and outdoors so he might need a little training but he does walk well on a leash.  Jack would love for you to come out and take a look at him so he can find his forever home.
