Casey & Wishbone – Pollywood Pets – Gibraltar Trade Center, Mt. Clemens, MI

Folks, It’s been almost a month since Casey (Cavalier King Charles) and Wishbone (Jack Russell Terrier) left their almost two year quarters at the Pollywood Pet Store located at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Mt. Clemens, MI. Thanks to Deb Howard, President of CAPS (Companion Animal Protection Society) and Steve Neavling, Detroit Free Press Reporter who contacted the Michigan Animal Adoption Network regarding two dogs living in extremely poor conditions at the Pollywood Pet Store in Mt. Clemens, MI.

They had spent their entire lives in small cages with wire bottoms and little to no socialization with people or other animals. Thanks to Dr. Marj Field, Medical Director at the VCA Allen Park and her wonderful dedicated team both dogs began their road to becoming actual “dogs”.It has been truly heart warming to see them progress day by day at the Pet Ritz Hotel in Roseville. Honestly, I’m on the web cam several times each day! The dedicated staff at Pet Ritz monitors their progress and care 24/7. They are side by side in Suite 3 or in the puppy play area. Anyone can view them by clicking onto With everything Casey has gone thru in his little life it is amazing he has so much spirit. It was such a big day for him when we left the vet hospital he fell asleep on my lap in his new suite. Priceless!!! Even with all of the medical procedures performed, he is always so willing and wanting to give you a million licks. Day by day he has had additional opportunities for puppy play time with the other dogs. He loves to play but will need a new home that will be able to walk him slowly over time in order to make is knee stronger.Wishbone has so many more socialization issues. He wags his tail non stop when you enter his suite but, is so leary of any touch. It almost seems painful to him until you spend quite a bit of time with him and he understands you are not there to hurt him. Thanks to Vladae Roytapel, the Russian Dog Wizard and his team who will be stepping in to assist in his socialization process. We will monitor his progress to prepare him for a new permanent home. Someone who will give him the time he needs to actually understand what it will be like living in a home. We know there is a perfect home for him that will do so…we just need to find them and until then we will wait.

We are so pleased to have been a part of changing their lives forever thanks to so many great people who have stepped up on their behalf. After everything we have organized for these two little fury faces…..when I close my eyes at night, I remember all of the other animals left to live at the Pet Store in severe conditions that may only speak to their lodging (barely) but not to their socialization and medical needs. It makes no sense. Both dogs should be placed up for adoption within the next month or so. Anyone interested in a Meet N Greet with them can contact the Pet Ritz Lakeshore hotel to schedule. The adoption process will be facilitated by the Michigan Animal Adoption Network.
