Hi, I’m Beta. I came to Carol’s in September 2017 after being rescued from the streets of Grand Rapids through a TNR community project. I’m gorgeous, but I hide sometimes because I’m a little shy, but the volunteers say that recently I have I’m doing better. I’m very sweet and loving once I warm up to someone! I’m looking for a loving, quiet home where I can continue coming out of my shell! I do like other cats and dogs.
Hi, I’m Football. I have a deformity in both my front paws. My bones are fused together so my claws don’t retract. But that doesn’t stop me from being a very sweet and playful boy. I would be good in a home with other cat and children.
Hi, I’m Zemira. I was rescued in February 2018 by a good Samaritan from Carol’s Ferals. I was very sick and had an infection, which led to my kittens being born sleeping. That was a very sad time for me, but I’m so glad that I was rescued and the volunteers here helped me to get healthy! I’m ready for a furever home of my own now! I’m approximately 4 years old and am looking for a quiet home of my own.

Meet Graham the 1 year old pittie mix! Graham is such a sweet dog. Very loving and obedient. Quiet too! He rarely ever barks. Half the time you forget he’s there! His favorite things are cuddling in bed, getting belly scratches, and throwing the ball around in the yard. He does well on the leash and loves going for walks. Graham also enjoys being your co-pilot on car rides. I can’t comment on how he is around children, but he gets along with other animals just fine. Graham really is a great dog and I know he will make a great addition to his forever home! Graham is up to date on all his shots, neutered and microchipped. His adoption fee is $200.
