Featured pet for Adoption



Hello my name is Luna, I am a 2 year old pit bull mix. I am looking for a home with no other animals and no kids. I am already spayed and am ready to go home upon approval of my adoption. I am a little picky when it comes to people so potential adopters will have to come out and meet me more than once to make sure that we are going to get along as the shelter wants to me to have a home that is a good fit for me. I am a very sweet girl once I get to know you. Please come out and take me for a walk and see if we could bond into a family.



Hello my name is Gracie.  I am a domestic short hair adult spayed female cat that is looking for a loving home.  I am supper friendly and looking for a home with someone who loves to cuddle.  I am not good with other cats and am housebroken but have yet to be around children.  I am looking for someone to love me and take care of me if you think you are the right person for me please come out because I would love to meet you.

Amazon Smile Thank you


Amazon smile funding has been a wonderful resource for us at the Cheboygan County Humane Society. We have a story we would like to share with you about how your contributions have helped make the lives of the animals here at the shelter better. We would like to share Meathead’s story.  Meathead is a 4 year old English Bull dog.  He was living in a garbage can chained to a tree behind a house.  When he was found, he was emaciated, with open wounds on his ears from fly-strike and in need of extra care and love. Meathead came to the shelter where he was fed regularly and antibiotics were placed on his ears.  He began to gain weight and his ears started to heal.  As time went on he was put up for adoption where many people came out and looked at him.  Meathead loves anyone who gives him attention and immediately bonded with a gentleman, who adopted him.  He now lives a great life, he goes for walks and on adventures with his new owner and even gets to sleep in his bed.  No more garbage can for this beautiful dog!

We also would like to remind everyone that you can help by using our link at  when you shop online with amazon.
