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

Hi, I'm Ruby, a six year old black lab who recently arrived here with my buddy, Jay. We're both looking for forever homes, and luckily for Jay he found his. Now it's my turn. I can be a little scared when I meet someone or when I experience new things, but at heart I'm really just a sweet girl who wants to be loved by a family of my own. Since I'm only used to living with Jay, I'd really like to meet any new canine companions I might be sharing a home with. Cats make me a little nervous, but I imagine I would be ok with them, and I'd probably be better off in a home without children because I don't like to share my toys. I have a lot of love to give, and I hope you'll consider making me a part of your family. See you soon. Love, Ruby.

The name is Charlie and I was found as a stray and my story is probably one you've heard before, so I won't bore you with the details. I'm only a year old, still a young guy with a dream; and that would be for a forever home. I'm trying to make a few friends during my stay here at LTBHS, so far it's a slow process since I'm the new guy and all. Otherwise I'm very friendly and hope you'll come check me out and give me a chance. I want to believe that dreams come true, maybe you can make that happen for me.

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.

GIDEON is our A C Paw Pet of the Week. Gideon came to A C Paw quite a large boy, weighing 23 lbs.  As big as he is, he is even a bigger lover.  He loves to be held and sit on your lap and loves to snuggle. He will wrap his front paws around your shoulders.  Gideon gets along well with other cats and dogs when introduced slowly.  He is not an aggressive cat. He is very gentle cat and should not be in a home if there are other cats or dogs that will be aggressive towards him. For more information about Gideon,  please contact www.acpaw.org

From the Charlevoix Humane Society

Hello , my name is Lennox.  I am a male terrier mix.  I am about a  year and a half old and weigh approximately ten pounds.  I am a little shy, but would warm right up to someone that would be willing to share their home and lots of love with me, so please stop by the shelter so that we can meet!

Hattie is a female cat who seems to be active, and really likes the new "cat condo".  Hattie is choosy with her feline friends but seems to like all her people friends.  Hattie has been with us for a little over a year now, and is extremely anxious to find that special person to share a home with, so please
stop by to get aquainted with her.

From AuSable Valley Animal Shelter

A more sincere and joyful dog just can't be found! He is a great Tigger of a dog and will make a fantastic pal for a very lucky adopter. Champ is going to need some training and a bit of work on housebreaking and manners, but he is a wonderful guy and well worth the time. Champ would do well with a family that can make sure he gets plenty of exercise. Champ has been vaccinated, neutered and micro chipped.
