From the Little Traverse Bay Humane Shelter

My name is Lulu and my family and I were rescued from a home that had way too many pets. Way too many. I was a bit younger when we were finally taken away from that situation, but I still remember how sad it was. I'm going on nine months old now and due to my lack of socialization when I was a pup, I've become somewhat shy. I'm very friendly once I'm familiar with newcomers-it just takes a little time and patience for me to get there. I'm so hungry for love and affection that it doesn't take long. I like other dogs since that's all I've known most of my life, but I'm not very sure about cats-they do interest me though. I like children if they are dog friendly, and I'm sure we'll be inseparable in time. I do hope you'll give me a chance, I'm a very nice little girl, as are the rest of my family. I'm hoping to be forever yours, Lulu.

Hello cross fitness fans, my name is Annie Thorisdottir, obviously not the real thing, but I could be a close second. I'm a mama cat that not only took care of her own six babies, but also raised three foster kittens at the same time. If that isn't a feat worth a fitness award, then I don't know what is. Now that my little ones are all on their own, it's time for me to retire from motherhood and all of that business. I'm still active and very social; a very sweet girl. I look forward to having a nice home where I'll finally get some special just for me.

NOLA is our very special A C Paw Pet of the Week.  Nola's past has been terrible, but we are hoping for a better future.  In February, Nola was left at the door of an apartment
Complex, in her carrier, with a note explaining that her owners couldn't care for her anymore.  Someone took her in and called A C Paw, but then let her outside by mistake, and she
Ran away.  She was out during that entire week of  minus 20 degree temperatures at night.  We alerted the manager of the apartment complex and someone from maintenance finally
Spotted her. When she came to A C Paw, she was dangerously thin with frostbitten paws and tail.  After several months in a foster home, her paws have healed, and she has
Gained weight.  The end of her tail was too damaged and had to be cut off.  Now that she isn't starving or in pain, Nola's personality is emerging.  She is still timid at times, but she
Is quite playful and she likes attention.  She loves to be petted and held in your lap.  With a bit of time and patience, she forms a trusting bond with people, and she lives peacefully with
Other cats.  Nola is a short hair black and white kitty.  She is 1 1/2 years old.  You can meet Nola during our weekend adoption hours at Petsmart or for more information about Nola,  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.

Hi my name is Bentley.  I am a young male Black Lab/Bulldog mix that is sweet, obedient and loving.  I very much enjoy my outdoor playtime and taking long walks.  If I sound like the companion that you have been dreaming about, please stop by so that we may get acquainted.

Hello, I am Corpernicus.  I am a three and a half month old grey and white Domestic shorthair.  I am cute, playful and at times like to snuggle.  I am currently looking for a home that I can call my own, so if you would like to share your home with me, I think we should talk.

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
