Pets of the week: Angel has lots of energy. Nina is a cuddly lap cat

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

Angel is a 10-month-old hound mix who is super cute. How could you look into her eyes and not fall in love?

Angel is a high-energy pup, but is eager to learn. She already knows how to sit and would love to accept treats with more training. She also loves playing in the water and would make a great boating or lake companion.

Angel is strong on a leash and would do best in a home with someone who can get her zoomies out regularly. he is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and has tested negative for heartworm.

Nina is a special girl. She can be a little uncertain around new people, but once she gets to know you all she wants to do is be petted by you. She especially loves it when you pet her cheeks and head. If you sit down, beware that you will have a lap warmer, as Nina loves to climb into laps and ask for as many pets as you are willing to give her.

Nina has a quiet but steady purr, letting you know she is enjoying herself. She can give some love nibbles, so we recommend she go to a home without small children.

Nina is front declawed already by her previous owner. Unfortunately, Nina keeps getting passed up by potential adopters as she is positive for FeLV. This means she will need to go to a home without other cats (unless they are also FeLV positive) as this is a transmissible disease.

Nina still has a lot of years left to live but will need regular check-ups with a veterinarian so she can stay as healthy as possible. If you have always wanted a lap cat, this girl is for you.

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.
