Sadie is a Coonhound pitbull mix that has been looking for her forever home since May. She is spayed and up to date on her shots and would love for someone to take her home.  Sadie has been waiting for her new family since May and we would love for her to find them.  Sadie is a little over 6 years old and is looking for a home with no other pets or children.  Sadie is protective, loves to go for walks and cuddle on the couch with you.  Sadie does have a Thyroid problem that requires her to be on   medication.  Bonnye loves to take Sadie out for walks and has noticed that she sits, shakes and does high fives.  She is potty trained and keeps her kennel very clean.  She loves attention like being petted and loves to go for walks.  Sadie would love for you to come out and take her for a walk to see if she is the right fit for your home.

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.
