Pets of the week: Twiggy was rescued from a hoarding situation and needs a new home

JACKSON, MI – Mara and Twiggy are just two of the many animals at the Cascade Humane Society that are looking for loving forever homes.

Mara is a 1-year-old pit bull mix who was transferred to CHS from another shelter, so her history is unknown. She has a lovely calm temperament and loves walks and car rides, but it’s unknown how she is with other pets or children. Her adoption fee is $150.

Twiggy, a 7-year-old female cat, arrived at CHS as part of a group of 60 cats taken in from a hoarding situation. She’s a bit shy but warms up quickly. She loves affection and is fine with other cats. Her adoption fee is $60.

If you think Mara or Twiggy may be your next perfect, furry family member, then please stop in for a visit.

Cascades Humane Society, 1515 Carmen Drive, is open to the public from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. All visitors are being asked to wear face masks to comply with state orders regarding the novel coronavirus.

All dogs and cats at Cascades Humane Society have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and given parasite protection prior to adoption. Those who adopt pets also receive a free wellness checkup from any of 24 area veterinarians.

Dog owners wishing to adopt another dog are required to do a meet and greet with their dog and the dog they’re choosing to adopt.

CHS also has added services to its Spay and Neuter Assistance Program. The service, available during scheduled spay or neuter surgeries, includes vaccines, heartworm testing for dogs, FIV and FeLV testing for cats and dental procedures.

CHS also has a Pet Food Pantry to help families going through financial hardship. CHS accepts cat or dog food donations, as long as the food is in its original packaging. Donors can drop off food by the pole barn behind the facility. The Pet Food Pantry is open from noon to 2 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month.

Those considering adopting Mara, Twiggy or another pet can apply to do so here. For more information, call 517-787-7387.
