On December 1, pet lovers will have the opportunity to adopt a pet for $20 and BISSELL Pet Foundation will sponsor the remaining cost at 81 participating organizations in 14 states. So many shelters are overcrowded at this time of the year and we hope this additional #EmptytheShelters adoption event helps pets find loving homes before the holiday season!

Spot light Pets Adoptions.

Sadie is a 5.5 year old female Pit Bull mix looking for a new forever home. She is spayed, UTD on shots, chipped as well. Her adoption fee is $90.00. Sadie will have to go to a home without kids, and this is mandatory. We are not sure exactly how she is with other dogs or cats. Sadie is very protective of her home and vehicle. Sadie is well behaved and walks well on a leash, and loves to cuddle on the couch with you! Sadie is classified as special needs as she will have to be on Thyroid meds the rest of her life.

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.
