IT's TIME to see what's new on Facebook at your SPCA of SW MICHIGAN
These dogs and cats 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 are 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.
Stories from Hearts needing Homes...
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regal Fariss: I have the disadvantage of being an older large dog and black in color. At only 5 years old, I need a Forever Home to shine in the second half of my life. Black dogs and cats are often the last to be adopted because people don't see our colorful personalities.
At the bottom of this page you may find out why I get passed over for adoption. Might you find in your heart some time to get to know me? All I ask is a chance, like the other rescues, to find a Forever Home where I can share my love.
Do you have their Forever Home?
Plan to meet Scrumpy & Regal Fariss, see why our volunteers love sharing time with them!
SCRUMPY - so what's in a name?
REGAL FARISS - a beautiful name
.Missy is one beautiful kitty, with her silvery gray, orange, and white fur. She is also very affectionate and loving! I'm not sure why she hasn't been adopted yet. Maybe people think she's too old? She's only 9! Cats can live up to 20 years! Plus, look how gorgeous her coloring is!
She is also one of the smaller kitties. Just so you know, animal experts don't recommend declawing cats because it's too painful for them, but Missy has already been declawed (before she was rescued), so she won't tear up your furniture! Please give her a chance: She's been at the shelter for too long!
While she loves Kitty City and is grateful for the staff and volunteers who take good care of her, she is ready to be adopted. Like any of the cats at Kitty City, Colorado is hoping to find that special person (or persons) to provide a real forever home.
Cats adopted from SPCA of Southwest Michigan have received the following: *Spay or neuter surgery, *FVRCP vaccination, up-to-date at the time of adoption, *Preventative treatment for fleas and ticks, *Micro-chip for identification, transferred to adopter.
Sparta is an older resident in Kitty City at 2 years and 9 months of age. I'll likely be overlooked for a younger kitty. Although I appreciate the attention from the great SPCA volunteers, I need my own family. Please take time to get to know me and consider giving me the Forever Home I dream about!!
I'm a member of our Kitty City and waiting along with other deserving cats for a caring/safe Forever Home. Stop in and let's visit, we'll BOTH be glad you did!
If you are interested in adopting from Kitty City, please fill out an online adoption application: On-line or stop in and fill out an application in person. Come meet them and open their opportunity to win your heart!
The SPCA prefers cats be indoors for safety reasons, so you may have to watch when doors are opened.
Please share our stories on Facebook or Twitter.
My new family is looking for me!
Sparta - Waits for her Family
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.
