Pet of the Week: Spade sits well. He loves cricket

Jackson, MI – Spade and Cricket are just two of the many pets at the Cascades Humane Society that are looking for loving forever homes.

Spade is a 3 year old ball of fun who is still waiting for his forever family to adopt him. It will be a perfect addition to your home – it’s cute, fun and handsome.

Spade is a very affectionate man. He loves kissing his humans, and he really loves games. He can be strong when on leash but he really knows how to rock and sit to eat. In fact, he’s well sitting around waiting for a treat, long before he knows he’s going to get anything.

Spade is neutered, updated on vaccinations, microchipped and has tested negative for heartworm.

Cricket is a cute little cat of 9 years old. This attractive girl is about as helpful as they come.

Crickets love to rub against their skin, purring sweetly with adoration. She also really enjoys fun and the occasional game.

Crickets don’t mind being kept but prefer a quiet environment. You will fall in love with this sweetheart as soon as you meet her. Cricket is excited to become your favorite little kitty.

Cricket is sterilized, updated on vaccinations, microchipped and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

If you think Spade, Cricket could be your next perfect family member (or members) then please stop by for a visit. 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 health check-up from any of the 24 area veterinarians.

Dog owners wishing to adopt another dog are asked to meet and greet their dog and the dog they choose to adopt.

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

CHS also has a pet food pantry to help families in financial difficulty. CHS accepts food donations for cats or dogs, as long as the food is in its original packaging. Donors can lower the food from the fold of the shaft behind the elbow. The Pet Food Pantry is open from noon to 2 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month.
