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!
Hello, my name is Bandit and I was surrendered by my family for reasons that a dog like me cannot understand. I'm six years old which is a nice comfortable age for a dog. I have a soft fuzzy coat that is white and gold and I'm usually pretty friendly with other dogs. But if I could meet new companions first that would be great. I don't know any cats, but if they are like squirrels then I'm sure they'd be fun to chase. Unfortunately I was one of those fellows that spent a lot of time outdoors, so you may need to use a crate until I get used to the indoors again. I'm sure it won't take long, I'm a very smart guy. Which reminds me, I come with a free training class when I'm adopted, I hope my family will take me, because I think it sounds like fun. Gosh, you really need to come meet me to see what a nice dog I am.
You can call it a wink if you like, but actually my eye is missing. I won't give you the details on how that came about, but it doesn't bother me at all. My name is Payne and the reason I was given that name is because someone thought my need for attention was annoying. I'm a very loving girl and I like to know what is going on around me. What's wrong with that? I'm a lovely orange tiger that is one and a half years old and as was previously stated, I'm very friendly. I like other cats, but they don't always like me, so we'll just have to see how it goes if you have other cats. I'm okay with dogs too if they are cat-friendly. Got kids? I guess I'm okay with them too, maybe they could come for a visit and we could check each other out. I like to hang out at the desk, because I like to help out when I can; funny how they keep saying that they understand why I was called Payne-at least they know my name.

Bambi is a male hound dog who is really sweet, but shy. The way we refer to him is he is a diamond in the “ruff”. He loves to be around other dogs, in fact, we think he would do best in a home with another dog.
Petal has been here since Feb. and needs to find a forever home. She likes people, but not other cats. Petal would best in a home as the only pet. She is low maintenance and we are hoping that she can find a home soon.
