AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
Meet Bernadette! A kind and caring lady was driving ten miles a day to feed Bernadette and her four kittens. They were living in a barn and the farmer was going to be filling the barn with hay and asked if the lady could take them. She contacted AC PAW and asked if we could help her find them all a home. Bernadette's kittens are in a foster home and not quite ready for adoption, but Bernadette is ready for her new home! She is a beautiful long haired gray 2 1/2 year old kitty. She is very sweet and gentle, but is going to be a little scared and shy going into a new home. She will need someone who will give her the time she will need to adjust and feel safe in her new surroundings. You can meet Bernadette at PetSmart in Traverse City. If you would like more information on Bernadette or if you would like to meet her, please contact us today.
Every year between 6 to 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters across the United States. Out of that number, 3 to 4 million are euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them.

AC PAW started as a vision of two people, Brian Manley and June McGrath, to ensure a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease, and death. AC PAW was founded to give these animals a second chance at life. We all know too well the over-population problem happening at animal shelters, so one of our core missions is to spay/neuter all of our rescued animals prior to adoption. We are officially begining our 19th year of volunteer service, with a handful of dedicated volunteers and a small number of donors. AC PAW began on July 1, 1995 and was officially incorporated on Jan 16, 1996. During this time we have rescued and placed nearly 8,000 dogs and cats into loving homes. We are always looking for animal lovers willing to put some time and effort into volunteering or becoming a foster home. Any kind of donations such as financial support, pet food, litter, blankets, towels, collars, or any kind of miscellaneous items would also be greatly appreciated.
