Available for Adoption





George and Weezie are 10 year old Rat Terriers that found themselves abandoned at the shelter door step. This adorable duo was left with nothing more than a note and each other. George and Weezie are both epileptic and will need a home free of chaos and preferably without young children. The ideal situation would be one that would allow for them to be adopted together. They have been through a lot together and very much benefit from being together. Please take a moment and stop in to meet George and his friend Weezie.

“Purr”man is a cutie of a 4 month old kitty, who will cast you under his spell with his kitten like kooky charms! When people come to see him, we promise, the only screams heard will be in delight as he snuggles close for a cuddle, before zipping off to investigate a shiny toy or crumpled piece of paper.  “Purr”man was recently found in a neighborhood that was altogether spooky, but now he’s eager to find a family to call on who will love him ‘fur’ever.

Ready to spend the next 15+ years with this entertaining lad? Snap your fingers and stop in today to meet “Purr”man Munster!

Thanks for looking!
In addition to our cats at the shelter and for your convenience, we also have a variety of fantastic felines available for adoption everyday at offsite locations:  the Grand Haven Chow Hound, Petsmart on Sherman Blvd. in Muskegon and the Holland Pet Supplies Plus.

Please stop by one of these spots to visit with our furry friends and let one of them steal your heart away!
