Megan from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio yesterday morning but we talked on the phone about Cleo!

Cleo is ready for a fresh start for her new year by finding her loving furever home!

Cleo enjoys long walks on the beach or in the park, and likes spending time with her foster family, as well as staff, volunteers, and even some of the older kids from summer camp! Cleo would do best as your only baby, furry or otherwise, but this little sausage has enough love to give for two dogs! Her foster mom says, "At home, she has been wonderful, she loves her rope toys, lounging, and just following you around." Do you have room in your heart and your home for this polka-dotted cutie?

New Year’s Safety

Whether you’re planning on having a cozy night in with your furry friends, or hosting a party this New Year’s Eve, make sure you and your furry friends are prepared to celebrate safely!

Always keep your pets away from any alcohol, chocolate, or any other substances you may be using to celebrate. Though CBD oil is used in some pet products, ingesting weed can cause your pet to be unsteady, sensitive to touch, and in rare cases cause seizures or even death. Fireworks are also prevelant during New Year’s celebrations, and can be super scary for our pets, so make sure your pet has a safe place to retreat to if things get too noisy! If you’re heading out for the night, make sure your pets have someone to watch over them to keep them comfortable during festivities.

Most importantly–have FUN! Happy New Years from our HSWM family to yours–thank you so much for a wonderful year supporting our mission and the pets in our care!

New Year’s Hours

Thank you so much to all of our adopters who have stopped in to give pets homes in time for the holidays!

We will be closed this upcoming weekend, Friday December 31st, and Saturday, January 1st for the holiday. We’ll be open again for regular business hours the following week, and we’ll look forward to seeing you in the new year!
