The 107.1 fm Pet-of-the-Week is Mr. Buddy

Mr BuddyMeet Mr. Buddy, a 13-year-old Toy Poodle with a lot of spunk and a lot of love! Mr. Buddy is playful, social, and loves his people! Because he is in his golden years and particular about his belly rubs, Mr. Buddy would like a home with adults only. A quiet, calm, and loving home would be particularly wonderful for this handsome little boy. Mr. Buddy is hard of hearing and may be potentially deaf, so a patient guardian who can work with him will truly help him blossom. Come meet this handsome boy today!
All the animals available for adoption at the Humane Society of Huron Valley (HSHV) are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their vaccinations and have a microchip I.D. which is included in their affordable adoption fee.

wtka  The  WTKA Top-Dog-of-the-Week is Rufus

Rufus1This 4-year-old hound dog mix is named Rufus, and we affectionately also call him Goofus! Rufus is so happy he shows exuberance for life that is sure to make you smile. Low key people and families may not be able to keep up with this playfulness so a family that embraces the joys of life and also has the time to play with Rufus would be the best fit for this dog. His howl is that of hound so apartment living is not a good fit for this guy.  If you would like to continue your dog's training, HSHV offers affordable dog training. Visit www.hshv.org for more information.

W4Country  The  W4 Country Pet-of-the-Week is Strummer

strummerLooking for a confident and curious cat to make you smile? Then meet Strummer, a handsome 4-year-old all white kitty awaiting a forever home! Strummer is an outgoing boy who would love to find a patient cat lover to dote on him! This guy has blossomed into a playful, active, and fun boy and is looking for his forever home! Strummer could likely live in a busier home or with children as long as he has a nice long acclimation period. Strummer did come in with several other kitties but was a tad bit overwhelmed when in a communal cat room here at the shelter; he can be a bit bossy with other cats! If you are looking for an outgoing and beautiful boy to brighten up your home please contact HSHV.

LucyAnn  The  Lucy Ann Lance Show Pet-of-the-Week is Maxwell

MaxwellDogHi, my name is Maxwell! I am a one-year-old Lab mix with the energy to prove it. I am looking for a very active family that will keep me busy. I love to play fetch, but need to learn how to give the ball back to you. I know sit, but need to go to training classes to help me learn better manners. I love people and once you complete the task of burning off all my energy then I would love to cuddle up with you on the couch. If you have the time for all of my energy and love then please come in and meet me today!

The Channel 19 CTN Pet-of-the-Week is DeBarge

DeBargeSome people are looking for a lazy, lasagna-eating, mellow feline when they come to HSHV looking for a kitty, but DeBarge definitely does not fit that bill. This 8-year-old cat is on the go, all the time! Because DeBarge is such an active and playful cat we want to make sure that any adopter for DeBarge understands that they need to play - more than the average kitty! Various and novel toys will be important tools to keeping your new kitty buddy happy, as well as an understanding that cats like DeBarge need to be supervised when playing so that they don't learn any bad habits. Come take the DeBarge challenge - see if you can tire DeBarge out before you call it quits!

The Plymouth/Canton Patch.com Pet-of-the-Week is Barstow

BarstowAre you looking for a laid back kitty who loves to spend time with his people? Barstow's foster reports that he should be named Garfield because he is such a lazy guy. Barstow also loves to eat just like Garfield. Unlike Garfield though Barstow is his person's shadow. This loving little fellow enjoys sleeping at the foot of the bed and will follow you everywhere that you go. He loves to be pampered and is looking for a family to make him the king of their castle. If Barstow sounds like your type of guy then please come in and meet him today!

Barstow tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (or FIV). With good nutrition and routine wellness care, a healthy cat that is FIV positive can live a long, happy life. FIV is a slow acting virus that affects the immune system over time. About 3% of all cats are FIV positive. The virus is contagious to other cats, but is NOT contagious to people or other animal species. Sometimes called the "fighting disease" FIV is mainly spread through serious bites that are not common among spay/neutered cats living in a stable home. A cat with FIV contracted the disease before coming to HSHV, likely after being lost or abandoned outside or from their mother during birth. Many cats live into their teens before there is any indication of an immune system compromise. We believe FIV positive cats can make loving companions and deserve a chance at a happy life.
