howl 2015Ask any staff member at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, and they’ll all tell you the same thing about this summer: it was absolutely crazy. Crazy busy, of course, but busy in a way that we know we’re doing something right here.

Howard photo legMany of you are already familiar with Howard’s story. For those who are not, when homeless Howard arrived at LTBHS several weeks ago, it was evident that something was very wrong with his leg. Worried about his safety, we took him to our veterinarian where it was determined that he had a fractured back leg. This was likely from being hit by a car and unfortunately, the leg was beyond repair. With our veterinarian’s recommendation, Howard underwent surgery to amputate his fractured leg. Despite this, we knew with Howard’s sweet personality and big spirit, he’d be able to overcome this challenge.

Adoption Lester and Bob AndersonSummer is flying by and so are the number of animals flying out our doors into their new, forever homes! We just finished up an incredible adoption week at LTBHS, which is something we’re thrilled about, of course. We found homes for 27 animals in total, which is right behind the banner week we had during our Collars for a Cause Adopt-A-Thon in June.

At Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, it’s safe to say that we’re busy every day of the year. There are always kennels to clean, dogs to bathe, cats to be fed and floors to be vacuumed and mopped. There is training that takes place every day through our Mutts With Manners Program and daily visitors to greet. This is just the tip of the iceberg, however, when it comes to all the work we do on a daily basis at LTBHS.

3 onlineWhat an amazing week! As many of you know, we just held our 7th Annual Collars for a Cause Adopt-A-Thon at Dave Kring Chevrolet-Cadillac in Petoskey on Saturday, June 13. We are happy to report it was a HUGE success! We took 41 animals to the event and found homes for 24 for them! What’s even better is that during the entire week, we found homes for 37 animals total! Yes, 37—isn’t that incredible?! This is after bringing in two transports earlier during the week of 27 dogs on top of the other animals brought in locally. This resulted in 31 dogs and cats that were rescued by LTBHS in one week alone!
