Mocha, a 3-year old Pit Bull mix, visited the studios today on Wet Nose Wednesday.  She brought Jen in from the Humane Society, and is looking for a nice home.Jen said that Mocha just graduated from Project Bark.  It is a program that the Humane Society and the Juvenile Detention Center provide to, not only work with dogs to better socialize them, but to work with the kids at the center and provide a positive experience with a pet.  It works wonders.

You can get info on Mocha and all adoptable pets by logging on to their website, www.hswestmi.org, and by calling 616-453-8900.
