Brianna from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio yesterday morning due to COVID-19, but we talked on the phone about Mice and Beetlejuice!!

This week we’re featuring a family of furry friends! Beetlejuice and his ghostly little siblings are all getting into the Halloween spirit and ready to party!

Mice might not be the first thing you think of when you think about adoptable shelter pets, but we actually have a lot of very cute, sweet mice all looking for loving furever homes! All of these mice are social, curious, and ready to find loving homes. Mice make excellent pets, especially for children or those with smaller living spaces--as they'll provide you with lots of entertainment, and they don't take up much room!

If you’d like to learn more about these adorable adoptable mice and their individual personalities, visit our website at hswestmi.org/adoptablesmallanimals

 Vet Tech Appreciation Week

It's National Vet Tech Appreciation Week! At HSWM we are so lucky to have a licensed veterinary technician and three vet techs that care for every single animal that walks through our doors.

Our techs medicate sick animals, prep and monitor surgery patients, work community vaccine clinics, and provide much-needed TLC to animals that need it the most. Our vet techs are all SO much fun and have even been known to burst into song and dance to keep spirits up! Our veterinary department wouldn't be able to function without them, and we are so grateful for their awesome attitudes and their hard work, each and every day!

If you know a Veterinary Technician, reach out to them this week to say thank you, or even treat them to a little something nice for all of their hard work!
