AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
Our handsome hound, Hank, is still waiting for his forever home! This boy is a survivor. He was found outside under some shrubs in January 2014 and taken to Antrim County Animal Control before he came to AC PAW. He was in very rough shape and extremely malnourished; Hank was nothing but skin and bones with no muscle on him at all. He was very scared of everything and everyone. His background is uncertain, but from the looks of him he wasn't well taken care of in his previous life. He is believed to be around four or five years old. After spending over a year in his foster home, Hank has gained trust with his surroundings and people. He is great around kids and other animals. His foster mom says he is "all hound" from his grunting and snoring to his need to sniff and pull as he is walked. His bark alone says "I'm a hound!" Hank is a very very sweet dog who has been through so much. He still needs additional potty training, because he hasn't quite learned to signal you when he needs to go outside. His foster mom has had him on a schedule as well as kennel-training which has been great for him. Hank will need to find a forever home with a family who understands him and has the time, patience, and love to devote to him. He will need a large fenced-in yard where he can be a hound and get his proper exercise. He would make a wonderful family dog for the right family. Please fill out our pre-adoption questionnaire if you would like to meet Hank or if you would like more information on him, 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 20th 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 over 9,000 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.
