Love is in the air, and so is Cherish!

This little darling came to MAS on Valentine’s Day with her mom and 7 siblings. They are all on the hunt for their forever homes, and they come packed with love, joy, and endless puppy kisses! Cherish may be just a tiny bundle of fur right now, but her heart is as big as her dreams of finding the perfect family to call her own!

While we can’t predict their exact size when they’re fully grown, we can tell you that mom tips the scales at around 50lbs, so she may follow in her paw prints! All these playful pups are in full-blown puppy mode, ready to chase balls, play tug-of-war, and embark on adventures with their new best friends (before a well-deserved nap and cuddle session)! Being so young, they would be happy to be a part of any home with other dogs, cats, and kids – all fun playmates and excellent role models!

Now is the prime time to work on her training and social skills, ensuring she grows up to be a well-behaved, perfect little lady. With a little patience, consistency, and a whole lot of love, Cherish is sure to blossom into the most wonderful companion.

If you’re ready to open your heart and home to one of these precious babes, visit the MAS website and submit your application today! They can’t wait to wiggle their way into your life and fill your days with laughter, love, and puppy cuddles galore! Adopt Cherish and embark on a journey of unconditional love and lifelong companionship.

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. 


Domestic Short Hair

Friendly, Gentle, Quiet, Independent



Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.

Other cats, Children

Maybe may be shy, but his heart is as big as can be! This handsome male kitten is searching for a patient and loving forever home where he can blossom into the confident kitty he’s meant to be.

At first glance, you might find Maybe nestled in the safety of his cubby, observing the world with cautious curiosity. He’s a bit of a wallflower, preferring the comfort of familiar surroundings. But don’t let his reserved nature fool you—once you earn his trust, you’ll discover a sweet and affectionate companion who craves gentle pets and loving attention.

Maybe’s ideal day involves snuggling up with his brother Clarence, enjoying the warmth and comfort of each other’s company. He gets along with his feline friends and would thrive in a home where he can continue to bond with his brother or other cat companions.

If you’re considering welcoming Maybe into your heart and home, patience is key. He’ll need an adopter who understands the importance of giving him the time and space to acclimate to his new surroundings at his own pace. With a little patience and a lot of love, Maybe is sure to bloom into the confident and loving companion you’ve been dreaming of.

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

Maybe has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. His adoption fee is $120. Maybe is approximately 6 months old.

Apply to adopt Maybe 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.
