"Rascal"/HSWM

Rascal visited our studios today, and Andy Rent talked about him on his Andy in the Morning show for Wet Nose Wednesday.

Trudy, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought Thunder to the studios.

Rascal is a 3 year old dog ​Shih Tzu. ​He is a sweet and shy guy who came to HSWM from Northeast Arkansas. He is ​currently kennel mates with another small male dog ​and they get​ along great! Rascal ​would do best in a quiet home with older/respectful children. 

According to the AKC, the Shih Tzu (pronounced sheed zoo) is one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. Generally speaking, breeds such as the Shih Tzu, Pug and Bichon Frise make excellent companions for apartment and condominium dwellers. They function well in confined spaces and a walk in the neighborhood is usually enough exercise to make them happy.

Trudy mentioned that the Grand Rapids Ballet is holding a fundraiser for HSWM. They will be having three shows of The Happy Prince & Other Wilde Tales this Friday, May 11 at 7:30 PM and Saturday, May 12 at 2 PM and 7:30 PM. Use the code HSWM50 when purchasing tickets and 50% of the sales will be donated back to HSWM to support animals in need!

Holly Kroeze from Bissel Pet Foundation also joined the show. She said the Foundation  is supporting the Empty the Shelters event on May 5th. All adoptions will be paid for by Bissell. On May 5th, the Humane Society will be accepting pre-approved applications only from 11-12 and will be open to the rest of the public 12-4. Puppies and kittens will NOT be available that day. Between now and Saturday is a good time to check out pre-approval. Do it online HERE.

You can get all the information on the Humane Society website or call (616) 453-8900.
