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

Rocky is a 5-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. He walks well on a leash and is housebroken – he will let you know when he wants to go outside. Staffers report that he is very tidy, gentle and patient.

Rocky is smart and knows how to sit and lay down on command. He would be a great dog for someone who has not owned one before and would be good in a home with kids.

Kragen is a current staff favorite cat. He is extremely friendly and loving. His priority is to be in your lap or to be petted and will climb all over you until he gets what he wants.

Kragen is only 5 years old and will spend the rest of his life being your lap warmer if you let him. He did test positive for FIV, but cats with that condition can live long and happy lives and can even go to a home with other cats. He will just need regular vet check-ups to keep him as healthy as possible.

Cascades Humane Society, 1515 Carmen Drive, is open to the public from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

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, Kragen or another pet can apply to do so here. Adoptable pets can be viewed at www.chspets.org. For more information, call 517-787-7387.
