Cheeto – Male American Staffordshire Terrier Mix

I’m a beautiful chocolate colored 1 year old American Staffordshire terrier mix and was transferred to HSWM from another animal shelter, making my history a mystery. I would love a household that is willing to give me time to adjust to new people and places. I am playful with female dogs, but can guard my toys which should be monitored. If you’re interested in meeting me, please visit Humane Society of West Michigan.




Mugly– Female Domestic Long Hair

I’m a rough around the edges but very loveable 9 year old cat. I have a kind heart and enjoy snuggles and pets from adults, but would not do well in household with young children. I am laid back and would enjoy a quiet home with my own space, but have lived with other cats before.  Cats ages 5 months and up have their adoption fees waived right now at Humane Society of West Michigan.

Humane Society of West Michigan is open Tuesday-Friday 12-7, Saturday & Sunday 11-4. 

For more information on the Humane Society of West Michigan, call (616) 453-8900 or visit them at 3077 Wilson NW,  just ½ mile north of  Three Mile Road during adoption hours or visit www.hswestmi.org
