Pets of the week: Bonita is a strong, pretty girl. Prince

2 min read

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

Bonita is a very pretty 6-year-old pit bull mix. She has lots of love to give and is very energetic. She can be vocal but settles down once she gets the attention she wants. Her legs may be little but don’t let that fool you, she is a strong girl.

Treats are Bonita’s favorite, which means she is treat motivated and ready to train. She already knows how to sit.

Bonita has been spayed, is up to date on all necessary vaccines and has been microchipped. Bonita is heartworm positive, but there is a treatment plan in place that will be completed at no cost to her adopters.

If you have any dogs currently, a meet and greet is required to make sure they get along. Please make sure they are up to date on their rabies vaccine as proof will be required before the meet and greet.

Prince is 6 years old and weighs a whopping 26 pounds. (Don’t worry, he’s on a weight management plan because he could stand to lose some pounds.)

Prince is a laid-back, vocal guy who loves head scratches and chasing laser pointers. This chunky guy has a heart as big as him. He loves to explore and would make a great companion. He may do best in a home with older children as too much stimulation irritates him.

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.
