Boone is a two year old beagle with a loving and sweet personality, although at times he can be very shy. He takes his time warming up and trusting, but once he knows he has nothing to worry about  he is full of kisses and love. He loves car rides and long walks. Boone will need a home with a securely fenced in yard, as his name implies, like the great explorer Daniel Boone, he does have a strong desire to explore and wander. Because of this he will also need a home with either older children (10 and up) or no children. Boone has a lot to offer the right family, just maybe that’s you!

Meet Butterfinger- the sweetest treat of the MHS cat room!

Butterfinger is a handsome and super friendly 3 year old boy who is looking for a taste of the good life…a family to love him, a comfy bed to rest his head on, and toys to fill his days with amusement and curiousity. He adores people and is quick to move to the front of his kennel to greet those who are passing by- for those who answer his request and stroke his head or rub his belly, he is the happiest kitty around.

Butterfinger would be ‘purr’fect for any family looking for feline fun- if you have room in your heart and home, consider this sweet confection!

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!
