Amy 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 Malcom!

We have NO idea why this incredibly cute fluff, is STILL waiting to find his furever home, after nearly 200 days waiting to be adopted! While we don't like to play favorites, we have to admit he's basically the purrfect cat! Malcom is a handsome, friendly FeLV+ cat, but don't let that scare you! While he can't go home with FeLV negative cats, he's a perfectly healthy puff and he loves other animals! His foster mom says, "Malcolm is all purrs and personality! He loves his canine foster brother and has the warmest heart! He loves to look out the window and take naps in his cat bed. He is incredibly affectionate and loves to play with cat toys! Malcolm is the very definition of a sweetheart, and we're shocked he hasn't been adopted yet! Do you have room in your home and your heart for this sweet boy?

Empty the Shelters begins this week

Who’s ready to Empty the Shelters again?!

Fall is in the air, and we’re hoping you’ll ‘fall’ for one of our adoptable pets this week! From Wednesday, October 6th, to Saturday, October 9th, BISSELL Pet Foundation and Cathy Bissell will sponsor adoption costs, so that all of the adult cats and dogs in our care will be just $25 to adopt, small animals will only be $5 to adopt, and as always, senior pets are fee-waived!

Be sure not to miss out on this amazing opportunity, and together let's Empty The Shelters!
