glacier yellowstoneOne thing we’ve all learned while at LTBHS is that there is never a “normal” day here. When we arrive at work at 7:30 each morning, we’re prepared for pretty much anything.

At Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, each and every animal has a temporary home until they find a permanent one of their own. It goes without saying that when you’re a no-kill shelter, some animals stay longer than others. The cute, tiny puppies and kittens usually find homes the quickest and often times, purebred dogs don’t stick around long, either. Your average, two year old mixed breed dog might stay for two to four weeks, which isn’t too bad, especially when the right home comes along.

Black Friday has come and gone and with it, Cyber Monday, as well. This brings us to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, also becoming better known in recent years as Giving Tuesday.

When the doors opened, they revealed crates stacked from the floor to the ceiling filled with dogs of all colors and sizes. There must have been at least 50 dogs in all, each one given another chance at a new life where there had previously been no opportunity for such.

Last week was very busy here at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society. Don’t get us wrong, it’s always busy here, but when road trips and transports are involved, it keeps us hopping even more than usual!

A week and a half ago, we were contacted by one of our partners, the Bissell Pet Foundation. They informed us of a shelter located in Tennessee that was in dire need of some help. They had many dogs who were all looking for homes and they ask if we could step in. The Bissell Pet Foundation graciously offered to pay for any and all expenses if we would be willing to make the trip down south to bring some of the dogs back here. This small, out of the way shelter rarely saw any traffic and because of this, their adoption numbers were incredibly low. We knew that we could find great homes for these animals, so we didn’t hesitate to load up the LTBHS van with crates and blanket and head south.
