From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter

Hey everyone, my name is Cruz, and like my name implies, I'm one of those care free guys that just likes to have a good time. Doesn't hurt that I'm a lab mix, we labs are pretty easy going dogs anyway, but add to that the name of Cruz-well you get the drift. I'm somewhere around a year old, young, friendly, and just a joy to be around. Of course guys like me could stand a few sessions of obedience training just to keep in form, but for the most part I'm not too bad. If you have other dogs, I sure wouldn't mind having a proper introduction before we live together. Cats are okay with me although I may enjoy playing more than they do. On the other hand, or paw, kids would be fun if you have them. Sure hope you'll stop by and visit soon, just ask for Cruz.

Welcome, my name is Eden and I'm a sweet little kitten hoping for my forever home. There is so much competition with all the kittens here, but I think I'm so cute that you won't be able to resist me. I hope you can take time out of your busy summer and come see me, my name is Eden.

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.

SKYLAR is one of our special needs cats. She is owner relinquished as her owner could no longer care for her.  Skyler is an older kitty and this sudden change in her life was very sad and confusing for her.  Skyler's only special need will require that she be on a special diet of food that supports Urinary Tract Health.  She is very susceptible to Urinary Tract Infections.  Keeping her on this special diet will keep her healthy and help avoid future infections.  This is a small thing to ask for a sweet girl that has so much love to give in return.  Skyler is a senior citizen. She is eleven years old but still has many quality years left to be your best friend and companion.  You can meet Skyler at Petsmart. She is a beautiful tiger and white short hair cat  For more information on Skylar,  please contact www.acpaw.org

From Northern Michigan Animal Rescue Network

Hallie is a beautiful plus-size calico girl who is looking for her forever home. She's in her 'Golden Years' a young ten year old lady who is curious (of course) and still likes to have a bit of fun. She loves to be pampered and groomed, but can be a little bit temperamental.  She is leery of kids and strangers and would do best in a quiet home with someone who has the patience to earn her trust and allow her personality to blossom. Hallie is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, 4 paw de-clawed, litter trained, and ready to meet you! For more information on Hallie, contact NMARN at 231-238-PAWS (7297) or email boots@nmarn.org
