On Wet Nose Wednesday, always a fun time to meet new furry friends from the Humane Society of West Michigan, Brianna joined me to talk about Sue, our featured pet of the week.

This sweet senior lady, Sue, has been living it up in her foster home and has been an absolutely perfect house guest! She took a little bit of time to settle in, but now she enjoys sunning herself in the window, snuggling up on her foster's lap, and spending her days lazing about and taking naps. She has been a very good kitty sibling to her dog foster sibling, and she’s ready to find a loving furever home to retire to!

Give Baby Bruce Another Chance!

Bruce is an adorable, 10-month-old beefcake goofball who may seem like he doesn't have a care in the world, but Bruce needs your help to live the happy, healthy life he deserves!

We welcomed Bruce into our care when his owners were unable to housetrain him. When he got here, HSWM staff quickly realized that this pup's urinary issues were just the start of his medical concerns, as poor Bruce was having issues with his legs locking up while he was walking. After we obtained x rays that appeared normal, our vet staff continued to monitor Bruce--but his condition began to go downhill. Because all of his tests were coming back negative, we sent Bruce for a neurology consult at Blue Pearl, where it was determined he likely has a subarachnoid diverticulum, which is an accumulation of fluid near his spinal cord in his neck. While his prognosis, given the proper treatment, is good, Bruce will need a pricey MRI and surgery totaling $10,000 before he is able to bounce back to the puppy he's meant to be, so we need YOUR help!

Please consider making a donation to support Bruce's medical costs--any amount makes a big difference! If there are any additional funds donated to this fundraiser, we will use them for other animals that have severe medical issues. You can find his fundraiser on our facebook page at facebook.com/hswestmi. Thank you, in advance, for helping to support pets who truly need you!
