Animals deserve a good life


Please tell everyone. I just want to live.

 

Did you know the average "holding period" for animals at your typical Humane Society before they are euthanized is only 5 to 7 days? Some may hold them longer but that would be out of the goodness of their hearts. This does not include animal rescues, which are no-kill organizations; these are non-profits and welcome your donation. What I am leading up to is you might consider visiting your local Humane Society when you are ready to adopt a dog or cat.

Charlie Boy and Croissant are in the Jackson County, Michigan Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, a shelter/rescue, but each is in a special needs situation that requires the right forever home. Charley Boy is a 5-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who is totally blind but still lives his life and doesn't cause him to be worried and afraid of new people. We had a blind cat and it was amazing how she managed to navigate our house, learning most of this on her own.

MLive.com says, "Croissant is a 6-year-old male cat who is big and beautiful just like a fancy French pastry. Croissant’s owner died and he was left abandoned in the house." Croissant likes people, and with a little cuddling and re-socializing, he will be a great pet for the right family. For those of you living in the Jackson, Michigan area, here are some specs. from Jackson County Animal Shelter...
"A meet-and-greet with a dog is mandatory. A cat room walk-through is available to test reaction. The dog adoption fee is $150 for medium and large dogs and $200 for puppies and small dogs, which includes vaccinations, microchip and sterilization."

"Cat adoption fees are $60 for one cat, $80 for two, which includes applicable tests, vaccines and spay/neutering."
