Looking for a Cat to Join Your Family? Tiger Might Be the One!
It's Wet Nose Wednesday as we discuss adoptable pets from the Humane Society of West Michigan. Brianna joined today and introduced Tiger!
Just like her namesake implies, this little kitty is a stripey spitfire!
Tiger is definitely an adventure cat, and though she will perch on your shoulder and give you lots of head butts, her favorite thing to do is PLAY! Chasing wand toys is her absolute favorite. This active young lady will love having lots of room to zoom and explore in her new home, and she may even enjoy a feline friend to play with! Stop by to meet Tiger soon!

Beagle Rescue Mission
Humane Society of West Michigan has been a longtime partner with Humane Society of the United States, and as a destination shelter, we are made aware when there are large-scale rescues like the 4,00 beagles being submitted to cruel research, testing, and breeding practices in Cumberland, Virginia.
RESEARCH & TESTING IN CUMBERLAND, VIRGINIA
The dogs in this facility were kept in filthy prison-like conditions and were hungry, sick, mistreated, and in some cases, dead. Those who were able bodied were headed for testing labs and they didn’t know how to play. They didn’t have names. But after this large rescue operation, ALL of these beagles are set to be released to loving owners.
RESCUED BEAGLE PUPPIES
We will be transporting 25 of these beagles to West Michigan to help to rehabilitate and rehome them. We don't know what condition these poor pups will arrive in, but we want to make sure that we give them every possible chance at living happy, healthy lives! Working to rescue, medically treat and relocate the dogs has been an enormous undertaking that has required the help of veterinarians, volunteers, and drivers--and now we need help from dog lovers just like you!
How you can get involved
We’re not sure exactly when they’ll arrive, but there are lots of ways you can get involved to help support these pups on their way to us!

RESCUED BEAGLE PUPPIES
.You can also donate to support their rehabilitation through our online fundraisers! We are trying to raise $10,000 online through both our Facebook and Instagram accounts.
For those that will require extra care, we’d also love for you to sign up to foster on our website at hswestmi.org/foster
Thank you for your patience while our staff work hard to get these dogs comfortable and ready to find their loving "furever" homes. As we learn more we will be posting updates on our social media accounts, so we encourage you to watch for more information as we get it!
