On Wednesday, October 7th, we talked to Amy from the Humane Society of West Michigan. She told us about Lola. Lola’s a sweet girl looking for a home where she can be the center of attention as the one and only pet. She really loves being with her people! Her whole body wiggles with delight when she sees you. She also enjoys going for walks and exploring the yards at HSWM! Lola is available for adoption! To learn more about how you can meet her please visit www.hswestmi.org

Amy also updated us on the recent Empty the Shelters Event...Last week HSWM participated in Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelters adoption event! A total of 39 animals were adopted during the event which ran from October 1st-3rd. Thank you to Bissell Pet Foundation and the wonderful adopters for making this possible!

Later today there is an Adoption Celebration! The Humane Society of West Michigan is excited to partner with Residence Inn by Marriott Grand Rapids Airport to host a fundraiser and adoption event on Wednesday, October 7th from 4:30 pm-6:30 pm. Residence Inn by Marriott Grand Rapids Airport is one of the few hotels in the Grand Rapids area that accept pets of all shapes and sizes! This is a great opportunity to check out a local pet-friendly hotel and find a new furry friend from HSWM! The HSWM Mobile Adoption Trailer will be at the event with adoptable dogs.

Another cool event is coming up...Howl N’ Boo! It is a virtual kids event on Friday, October 16th from 6 pm-8 pm. Calling all ghouls and goblins! Join them for a virtual spook-tacular night filled with costume contests for humans and pets alike, ghost stories, crafts & games galore! Even though this event has gone virtual for this year it is still guaranteed to be tons of fun! A minimum $10 donation is recommended to join in the fun. Kits will be prepared for each registrant to participate in the night’s activities! For more information or to register your child for this event, email heducation@hswestmi.org.
