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!

At Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, we are constantly taking in homeless animals with the ultimate goal of finding them new, loving homes. A typical week might go like this: we take in a few animals that have been surrendered by their owners, pick up one or two from our local stray center, or perhaps receive a transport of five to ten high-risk animals from another shelter.

Count12We’re happy to help the animals who need us most, especially when they need us most. This unfortunately often happens when a situation is at its most dire—when an animal is at risk in a kill shelter. These animals might have medical issues, be on the older side, have behavioral problems, or they may not have any of these at all—the shelter might just not have room for them. This is where LTBHS comes into play. We are fortunate here at LTBHS to be able to reach out to other shelters and rescues in need, helping to pull at-risk animals who might otherwise be euthanized.

Zeus dogIt’s difficult to imagine what some of these animals go through before they arrive here. This is true especially when it comes to Zeus, a three year old retriever mix. Zeus and many other dogs were found living in what had at one time been a rescue facility. They had been cared for by an elderly woman who loved animals, but over time, she was no longer able to manage all of them. Eventually, when the place was discovered, over 200 dogs were found living in kennels with very little care.

Shasta dogAt Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, (LTBHS), we give second chances.  Especially to the animals who would not likely be given one elsewhere.  At LTBHS, we know that every life is valuable and important, which is why we do everything in our power to give these animals the second chance they deserve, and more importantly, the opportunity to find a loving, lifelong family of their own.
