The following animals are available for adoption. If you find an animal you’d like to adopt please contact the organization directly. Lowell’s First Look does not assist with the adoption process. And if you’re looking to add to your family and don’t see an animal below, each organization has additional cats, dogs, or farm animals looking for new homes. Pet profiles and photos are provided by each organization.
For additional information about each organization visit their websites or read our intro article to Furry Friday! The following pet profiles are provided by each rescue.
Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary
Those involved with Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary take pride in finding the right home for dogs in their care. Here are their pets of the week.
I am such a little cutie, or so they say. My name is Allie. I am a Rat Terrier Mix. My previous owner, lost their home, so myself and two of my siblings, went to a shelter. I was scared and can be timid, but I warm up quickly once you show me attention. I like the dogs here at MAS I have met, and did okay on my cat intro. My D.O.B. is 6/24/13. Young enough to be active, and old enough to settle down when you want me to.
Harmony and Melody arrived at MAS as a pair, and would love to find a forever home together. Harmony is a 4-year old beagle. In true beagle nature, she loves to follow her nose on walks and sniff out everything she can! Harmony can be a little shy of new people and things at first, but once she’s comfortable, she’s a sweet and playful gal that loves attention!
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.
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue look to find dogs in their care forever homes with the help of foster homes. Here are their pets of the week.
I’m a five month old sighthound from Beruit, Lebanon. I made the very long trip to Michigan at the end of April so I’d have a chance at finding my forever family.
Right now I’m about 25-30 lbs but everyone thinks I’ll get to be around 45-50 lbs. I’m tall and lanky because I’m built for running. I’m extremely active, very playful and curious of everything, so my family needs to have a fenced in yard.
I love people of all ages! But since I am a puppy, we’re still training on play biting and jumping. That being said, I should probably be in a home with older children or no children.
I also really like like cats (maybe a little to much) but should probably only be around very calm kitties. Hopefully I’ll find a home with another dog because I’d love the companionship!
She’s spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $300. Apply to adopt her here: https://rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
