Vicky’s Pet Connection
Vicky’s Pet Connection works with the Kent County Animal Shelter to rescue cats and kittens. They also take in dogs older in age and those needing special care. Here are their pets of the week.
Being a single mom is hard work and Margo can attest to that! This little beauty had six little kittens that she worked so hard to raise but now they are growing up, leaving the nest and its time for HER to get a little spoiling! Margo is a bunny-soft kitty and is around 5-6 years old. She is a little shy but will warm up nicely to a gentle, loving person. She has so much to give and will make a wonderful companion.
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue look to find dogs and sometimes cats in their care forever homes with the help of foster homes. Here are their pets of the week.
Lulu is a 7 month old Staffy Mix with amazing, floppy ears – and plenty of spunk!! She’s also a fantastic cuddlier; this adorable munchkin face loves to be her human’s napping buddy. Lulu is working on crate training and is almost finished house training; we’re so proud of this wonderful girl. She loves other dogs, and she would love to have an active live-in land mammal roomie who shares her affinity for cheese whiz, college football and Mariah Carey. Since Lulu is still a puppy and need some basic obedience lessons her future family will be required to attend training with her. No young children please (under 10). Lulu is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots. Her adoption fee is $200. To adopt Lulu apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application
Hi! I’m Ricky and I’ve been told I’m quite the sweetheart! My siblings and I were dropped off at a shelter down in Louisiana and came all the way to Michigan to search for a better life and a forever home. I like to play with my siblings a lot, but I also love to snuggle with and be held by my humans! Sometimes I pretend I don’t know how to climb stairs so that my foster mom picks me up and carries me. I really like that! I’m just old enough to start working on obedience training and I think I’ll like that too. I am not a huge fan of the cold. Must my southern roots! I have learned however, the faster I go potty, the faster I get to go back inside. I would love a home where I could receive lots of attention, playtime, training, and snuggles! I am up to date on my vaccines, neutered and microchipped. My adoption fee is $300.
