Pets of the week: Rocky is a sweet talker. Vivian needs a safe home for cuddling

By haziqbinarif

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

Sadly, Rocky has been returned to CHS a few times, but it was through no fault of his own. Whether it was because of the health of an owner, a family moving or his people not having time for him, Rocky found his way back to us each time.

Rocky is a good boy who likes kids, cats and other dogs. He is 9 years old and wants to have a forever home by the new year. He’s a good communicator – talking to tell you what he wants. Rocky is microchipped, neutered, up to date on vaccines and tested negative for heartworm.

Vivian is a little on the shy side. But she has an adorable squishable face. Once Vivian warms up to you, she likes to snuggle. She’s only 2 years old and has been spayed, brought up to date on vaccines, microchipped and tested negative for Felv/FIV.

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 Rocky, Vivian or another pet can apply to do so here. For more information, call 517-787-7387.
