Do You Have a Big Heart & Love Dogs? Kimmy is Looking for You
Meet a snuggly black bear of a dog with little snowy-white freckles and a big pink tongue that love to be kissing you! It's long-stay pup, Kimmy Gibbler!
In hopes of helping find adopters for our three longest-stay pets, Kimmy Gibbler is FEE-WAIVED to adopt! Her foster dad says, "Kimmy is popular with the kids in my neighborhood and has been very sweet and calm while 4 or 5 kids all come up to pet her.
She loves meeting new friends when they come into the house. Her favorite thing is to play fetch with her red Kong ball. She also loves spending a long time cuddled up on the couch, resting her head on my lap, and chasing squirrels in her sleep. She is so sweet all the time and anyone who meets her quickly gets their heart melted!"

Looking for something fun for your kids to do during their holiday break? Sign them up for our upcoming Winter Camp, this Wednesday December 28th through Friday December 30th!
Kids of all ages are welcome to join us for the whole three-day-long camp, or just join us for a day or two to get out of the house, get to know some shelter pets, and make new friends! Your kids will enjoy animal time, crafts, games, activities, guest speakers, and so much more. Camp runs from 9am to 4pm every day, with after-care available until 5pm. Register your camper for $140 for all three days, or just $40 for one day!
There’s only a few spots left, so sign up today and learn more on our website at hswestmi.org/youth-camps

New Years Safety
The New Year is nearly here and we’re ready to welcome 2023! Whether you’re planning on having a cozy night in with your furry friends, or hosting a rowdy party this New Year’s Eve, make sure you and your pets are prepared to celebrate safely.
Keep alcohol and any other substances away from your pets, as both alcohol and marajuana can cause unsteady walking, vomiting, and in severe cases, a serious drop in blood pressure, body temperature, or even seizure or death. Fireworks and making noise are also a common way to celebrate the new year, but make sure that your pet has somewhere safe and quiet to go inside the house away from the sound of fireworks, party poppers, or the hustle and bustle of party guests.
Most importantly, HAVE FUN and a wonderful new year!
