Heather's Hounds Weekly Adoptable Pets

Welcome to 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

Charles here, my name is in honor of the Royal birth, I come from the Bahamas and I'm know as a Potcake. You'll need to Google "Potcake" to help you to understand my background. I'm enjoying the lovely Michigan weather and one thing I noticed is all the trees! Wow! I cannot live with other dogs, so I would need to be the only pet. Same goes for cats. I lived with children over the age of five, so that's okay, especially if they like to play. I would prefer a fenced in yard if you have one; an underground fence won't work because other dogs can come into my space. I'm a very handsome and friendly guy and I hope you'll come check me out and find out for yourself.

You may think that I've taken on a second language (canine for instance) with a name like Yappie, but the truth is I am from the "Y" litter and names that begin with the letter "y" are not so common. So now you know why (no pun intended) I'm called Yappie. I'm just an eight week old tiger kitten in need of a forever home. And like some of the other kittens, I was found as a stray and was fortunate enough to have lived in a foster home. My siblings, also with "Y" names are looking for homes too. If you think two kittens are better than one, then be sure to check out the end of summer kitten special.
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. For more information about all pets available for adoption or to donate, visit them online at www.ltbhs.com


 PIXIE IS OUR A C PAW PET OF THE WEEK.  Sweet Pixie is ready for a forever home!  Pixie was owner relinquished at the age of 15 years old.  She came to A C Paw very depressed after losing her mate and she came to us with a diagnosis of Colitis.  After several months of treating her for Colitis and seeing no improvement, we had further blood work done and found out that Pixie actually has Hyperthyroidism.  She is doing wonderful now that she is on the correct medication.  The medication is applied topically to her ear twice daily. She enjoys Blue Buffalo for Sensitive Stomachs Dry Food.  Pixie is loving, vocal, enjoys sleeping on your lap and helping you on the computer by demanding to be petted. Pixie would do wonderful in a quiet home with no dogs. She will get along with other cats if they are not aggressive.  After all Pixie has been through, her foster parents do not want to bring her to the weekend adoptions as they feel it will be too stressful
For her.  Please fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire available on the A C Paw website if you would like to give this sweet girl a new home.  The fosters will arrange for you to meet Pixie. 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. AC PAW has now rescued over 6,000 animals in the northern Michigan region and services the five-county Grand Traverse area.

From the Charlevoix Humane Society

Hello, my name is Claude, I am a young, Pit Bull Terrier mix looking for a patient companion that is willing to teach me some boundaries and manners.  I love to take long walks and would love to have someone to walk with.  So if you have as much energy as I do, I think we might make the perfect pair!

Hi my name is Petal.  I am a two year old domestic shorthair mix.  I am very shy, sweet and loving.  I would probably do best in your home if I was the one and only cat.  Please stop by so that we may get acquainted!

From Northern Michigan Animal Rescue Network

Marty is a chatty little 9 month old Beagle who is looking for a fantastic forever home. He's a great snuggler, rider, playmate and companion. Marty is a fast learner and very smart! He's still working on the basic training at his foster home and is catching on quickly. Marty likes to play with kids, other dogs and cats! He likes to chase them but he's gentle with them. He has a clean bill of health, and he's in need of someone with time to continue training, snuggling and playing. Marty is neutered, up to date on his shots, and ready for his forever home. For more information, contact NMARN at 231-238-PAWS (7297) or email boots@nmarn.org

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

IGO BIG OR GO HOME! If that’s your motto, then I’m your dog! I’m Zeus, a mature Great Dane/Mix, a proud member of the AVAS Platinum Paws Posse. I’m really excited to meet you and show you just why they call us “Great” Danes and not just “OKAY” Danes or even “REALLY GOOD” Danes. I’m more on the large size rather than the super-sized model. I am housebroken, extremely good with other dogs and kids, and have a very “cool dude” temperament. My foster family moved out of the area and I miss the little girl who laid on me while we watched cartoons together. I just know that you will love me, guaranteed! And if not, don’t you have a friend or relative who needs some BIG DOG LOVE? I have been neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. For more information,  please call the shelter at (989) 348-4117 or e-mail: avascares@yahoo.com
