4-Year Old Holly Need a Loving Home. What about You?
This pretty girl is thicker than a snicker, and just as fun! In case you were wondering, Holly is baby and loves to be carried around like a baby, and also loves to suckle on her favorite toys. It’s so precious we can barely stand it! She also has the CUTEST smile and wonderfully expressive puppy-dog eyes. Holly is down for whatever you want to do, as long as she has one of her favie toys with her.
Want someone to watch Netflix with you? Holly is your girl! She knows how to sit and shake, and will do her very best to learn more tricks if it makes you happy. Poor Holly had a rough start to life and is looking for a home where she can be your only baby, furry or otherwise, with an owner who can help her unwind and relax in a calm, quiet environment. She just wants what every animal wants--a safe and comfortable home where she can be loved.
Holly can't wait to meet her "furever" family soon, so if you’d like to adopt her please visit our website at hswestmi.org

National Community Cat day was this weekend, and a great opportunity to talk about community cats!
Community cats are independent felines that live outdoors and rely on the protection of humans to thrive in colonies in communities across the globe. These cats are usually incredibly content living the way they do, but we can still provide support systems to help these cats live productive, healthy lives. Instead of bringing them in to the shelter, we advocate for TNVR programs!
TNVR, which stands for trap-neuter-vaccinate-return, is the process in which cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and returned to their outdoor homes. Once returned, they'll be able to live out the rest of their lives in the home they've always known!
There are lots of ways to support community cats in your neighborhood, including getting them through a TNVR program, providing warm shelter, especially in cold wet weather, and offering fresh food and water.
