Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary

Those involved with Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary take pride in finding the right home for dogs in their care. Here is their pet of the week.


Husky Mix
DOB 2/21/21

Averie, an adoptable Husky Mix in Lake Odessa, MI_image-1


Affectionate, Playful, Smart, Funny, Loves kisses, Athletic, Independent


Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.

Other dogs, children.

Other animals.

A is for all the affection I have to give
V is for my vivacious nature
E is for easing into new friendships
R is for my refreshing outlook on life
I is for the incredible adventures we will have together
E is for my enthusiasm in everything I do!

I hear people-pleasing is supposed to be exhausting….but not for me! Being the young little lady that I am, my potential is as high as your dedication! It is very satisfying to utilize this beautiful brain I have, to make my friends (and my future family) happy. I won’t lie to you; I am still growing out of some “puppy habits” (mouthing when I am overly excited) but rest assured, positive redirection and consistency will make for a quick remedy. Because I am still learning my size and appropriate play behavior, I might be best suited for older children that have a sturdy stance.

Who needs a television when you could have me to keep you entertained! My enthusiasm is expressed in such a dorky way. I like to zoom around and try my best to impersonate a professional contortionist by folding over like a pretzel with my behind in the air! I am really excited to play with other dogs too, its a great way to let my antics out before we hunker down in bed for the night.

Don’t wait too long, if you like it….then you should put a collar on it. Take the first steps by submitting your adoption application online!

Jasmine aka Jazz is a 20 pound 7 year old Pomeranian Mix with gorgeous flowing hair and the cutest little face !! She is so calming and sweet, and she loves everyone and everything. Precious. We adore this tiny little munchkin and ridiculous level of cute. Jazz loves cuddles with her human, yummy treats and watching Ted Lasso with her buddies. Jazz does very well with cats, dogs and humans of all ages. Jazz is spayed and up to date on shots. Her adoption fee is $275. To adopt Jazz, apply online.


Second Chance Cats of West Michigan

Second Chance Cats is a 501(c)3 non-profit with a mission to help cats at municipal shelters who are at risk for euthanasia or were deemed unadoptable because of behavioral or medical issues. The group also works with other private rescues that are overcrowded and helps rehome cats that have been assessed as friendly when going through the trap-neuter-return process.  Here is their pet of the week. 



Tic, an adoptable Tabby in Grand Rapids, MI_image-2


Gentle, Quiet



Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.

Other cats, children

Tic was trapped with her brother, Tac, from a known colony on the northeast side of Grand Rapids,

Tic is the embodiment of sweetness and charm. She’s a playful little ball of fur who likes to play – whether it’s chasing feather toys, pouncing on shadows, or simply frolicking around. Tic likes to play with her roommates when she thinks nobody is looking!

However, there’s a gentle air of mystery that surrounds Tic. She’s a bit reserved around people, making her all the more intriguing. Tic is a master of the art of silent observation, often choosing to watch from a cozy nook, taking in the world at her own pace. Her reserved nature only adds to her enigmatic allure.

You’ll fall in love with Tic’s photogenic moments. Those captivating eyes have a way of telling a story all on their own, making her the perfect model for those candid shots. Catch her in her quiet moments, her playful bursts, and those rare instances when she decides to grace you with her presence.

Tic will need an adopter that will give this very shy girl the time she needs to adjust to her new home.

We believe that kittens are happiest when they have a feline friend so Tic will need to be adopted with another kitten here or go to a home with an existing, playful cat.

Tic has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She is approximately 7 months old. Her adoption fee is $120.

Apply to adopt Tic here.

If you are interested in any of the cats at Second Chance Cats of West Michigan, go to sccatswm.org/adopt to fill out an application, or stop in during open hours on Fridays from 11-2 or Saturdays and Sundays from 11-4.
