IT's TIME to see what's new on Facebook at your SPCA of SW MICHIGAN
These dogs and cats who have special needs or don't necessarily show well at the shelter. However, they are very nice animals that would be a great addition to many families. In order to provide incentive for potential adopters to give them a closer look, their adoption fees may be reduced after they have been at the shelter for a certain amount of time. Please look for reduced fees as you look thru the list of available dogs & cats.

LOOKING TO LOVE-
Do You Have A Forever Home For Me?
Scrumpy: I'm a 10 year old Male Terrier/Pit Bull Mix looking for a loving home with people that will take care good care of me. I will reward you with a wagging tail and devotion.
Are you looking for a four legged friend who is just as lazy as you? Look no further! Scrumpy is your man! Sure, Scrumpy loves a good walk, but he also loves his bed. This old man will steal your heart, and probably your treats. He can't wait to be your new best friend (and napping partner.) Needs a home with No other dogs or cats.
My adoption fee is reduced because I'm a bit older than many dogs at the shelter. Older dogs are often the best friends because we appreciate a nice home!
If you are interested in giving this pet a forever home, please complete an Adoption CONTACT FORM or email us at email@example.com.
Sweet Fuzzy! This beautiful girl is about as sweet as they come! She does not hear well and is startled easily when she is sleeping or approached from behind. But once you have her full attention she is just a joy to be around. Fuzzy is calm, loving and has wonderful leash manners. She can be a bit shy at first, but give her some time to get to know you and she will open up. One sure way to win her heart is got give her a tennis ball. She is pretty sure those round, yellow objects are about the best thing ever! Come on down and meet this sweetheart of a girl.
If you are interested in giving this pet a forever home, please stop in the shelter T-F from 1-7pm, Sat 11-4pm or by special appointment. Adoptions are not started within 30 minutes of closing time. If you have questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Be Color Blind - Find a Family Friend:
In animal shelters across the country, the story is the same - black dogs and cats are usually the last to be adopted. Some holding facilities will actually euthanize them on intake because their chance of finding a new home is so slim. Why are these poor creatures so undesirable?
Unfortunately, misconceptions about the temperaments of black cats and dogs abound, and many people find them simply unattractive. They don't appear to be as unique and, sadly, it is harder to see expression in a dark face. A brindle dog seems perkier, the white blaze on the nose of an orange tabby appears to add personality, and they therefore catch your eye. So all too often a black animal is passed over for a lighter coated one with a less agreeable disposition.
If you are looking for a furry companion, consider adoption one of our black rescues. You will be giving a lifelong home to a loving animal that desperately needs it.
