Pepper is a 3 year pit bull terrier mix who came to us from another shelter where her time was up. She has lived in a foster home with other dogs and older children. When Pepper first arrived in her foster home she was not certain of how to fit in. With time she has proved to be a very loyal companion. Pepper is very intelligent and athletic. She would make a great running or hiking companion for someone. She does not care for the feline type so much so would do best in a home without cats. She is crate trained, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccinations.This girl has been waiting a very long time to find that perfect fit…we just know it is out there!

Looking for a handsome slugger to join your roster of love and affection? Look no further than our very own tiger, Miguel Ca’purr’a. This 5 year old fella is the grand slam when it comes to all this cuddly and sweet. You won’t regret adding Miguel to your team. He loves to make air cookies and if you listen, he will purr his favorite chant to you….”take me out to your ho-o-o-o-me!”

Get to know this su’purr’star today!


Miguel Ca’purr’a threw us a curveball during our routine FeLV/FIV testing, where he showed himself to be positive for FIV. While this is not the result we would hope for any kitty, it is important to know that Miguel is still very much HIGHLY adoptable- for the right home.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering one of our fantastic felines, you can fill out an on-line application.  You’ll find the form on our Forms page.



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!
