From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter

Hello, my name is Pete and I'm a Border Collie mix in need of a sympathetic forever home. I'm a really great guy, very friendly, but my skin is having was having some issues, which was determined flea allergies. And that's any easy fix; I'll just need my preventative during flea season. What a relief. My previous home wasn't the best and I'm glad to be out of there. I like other dogs, but I sure would like a proper introduction before I decide that we'll be friends. And no young children for me, I don't like to share my food, and the young ones may not understand that. Other than that, I think I have pretty good manners, but there's always room for improvement I always say. I come with a free training session when I'm adopted and they have lots of good advice. I can hardly wait to have a real loving and caring family.

Man, I think someone was really with it that gave me this neat name, Layton. A guy with a name like mine will probably grow up to be a super cool cat. I like to play and have fun with my siblings, but if you have other cats, I'm sure we'll have a good time too. I'm young enough to learn how to respect cat-friendly dogs too. I sure hope you're the one to give me a forever home, the name's Layton.

Baby Ruth, or "Miss Ruth" as her foster mom calls her, is a sweet girl who has been with AC PAW for a while. We are not sure why because she is such a wonderful cat. She is a busy, happy kitty who loves to talk and be a part of all that is going on. Her foster mom says if she has company over, Baby Ruth will sit herself in the middle of the room just to be sure she is not missing out on anything. She is a beautiful short haired two year old gray tabby who was born with almost no tail. Baby Ruth is one of our 'Special Needs' kitties who is up for adoption this weekend. Her adoption fee will be only $50. We know that special person is out there and just hasn't come along yet for Miss Ruth, but we are hoping they will be at PetSmart this weekend to give this special girl a loving forever home. For more information on Baby Ruth,  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 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 (after all, she is female;). 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
