Some of the many adoptions we arrange!
June 11, 2015: Jackson in his new home!
Here are some pictures of Jackson enjoying his new “kitty condo”. The one where he’s on the “top floor” or “penthouse” and looking to the right of the picture is when he was eyeing the dog (Pago) assessing how comfortable he could get up there. The one where he’s looking straight ahead (to the left of the picture) he’s eyeing the birds coming and going by the deck.
I added the one where he’s scratching a post so you could see he’s taking advantage of the sisal rope on it. Needless to say, he’s fitting right in!
He’s so doggone curious he’s been getting into everything! Much to our surprise, one thing he loves to do is sit in our tub and play with any drops that drip out. And he not only tries to open doors himself, as you mentioned before, but he also likes to “help” us while we’re opening doors. He’ll put his front paws on the door and lean while we’re opening it. Something else, huh?!
Also, it’s been so long since we’ve had a cat, the kids have forgotten what it’s like. Every day, after he does a normal cat thing like start racing around the house for no apparent reason, the kids will look at me and ask why he’s doing that. It’s been a great bonding moment for us. Hope you’re doing well!
April 8, 2015: Barnabas was adopted!
Barnabas was adopted on April 8, 2015. His mom sent us these cute pictures of him exploring his new home and she wrote us this nice email:
Hi, sorry I couldn’t send the photos of Barney earlier, I had trouble getting them from my phone to the computer.
Barney is doing great! He has such a funny personality, both rambunctious and very cuddly. He loves hanging around the bathtub and playing with the water coming from the faucet. He also likes to play with shoes. He started to venture out into the rest of the house, some times I find cobwebs stuck all over his little black face. He acts as if I can’t tell what he’s been up to!
He seems very happy and loves all the affection we give him. I’m so glad we were able to work out this adoption. smile emoticon Let me know if you have any questions about how he’s doing. – Anne
Congratulations to Barnabas, now known as Barney, and his new family!
October 3, 2014: Frankie was adopted!
Frankie was adopted a couple days ago by Andy and Melissa. He is settling in very well, even sleeping next to his brother (cat) Kingsley!

Gizmo – adopted in November 2013
Rigby Update – August 10, 2013:
We are so proud of our Rigby!!!!
We had obtained him from the Michigan Humane Society as a transfer. He was lacking “proper” training and he had some skin issues. With the help of one of our wonderful foster parents, Lisa Bewick, Rigby improved and became a little gentleman.
It took awhile but the perfect home was found for him. Now, he’s living the good life with two of the world’s finest female bowlers, Aleta Sill and Michelle Mullen, who taught him the tricks of their trade. Watch Rigby in action!
January 23, 2013: Cat – The cute 1 year old, black kitty with a heart murmur. He has it made for the rest of his life!
Lula update – August 2012
Lula was a cute little puppy who needed a great home and luckily she found it!
Her new parents recently sent us a lovely, first birthday picture of her, along with a little note.Hi Chris: Attached is a photo Lula, our little lovely pup. She was just spayed but is recovering nicely. We’re thinking about enrolling her in agility training; she’s such a little tuffy. Thanks for bringing her into our lives.
This cute boy was adopted July 25, 2012. We don’t know his past (he was a stray in Warren, MI) but we sure do know his future! Congratulations Chester and family!!!!
We are so thrilled for Waffles and his new family.
While attending our adoption event this past Saturday at Pet Supplies Plus, Waffle’s new mom saw him and fell in love.
What a great Thanksgiving for Waffles!
Her new mom wrote, “Thanks again for letting us adopt her. She is so beautiful and I love how friendly she is.”
We wish Nutmeg a long and healthy life!
KC & Mandy
KC and Mandy were adopted on Friday and the best part is – they went to the same home.
After the girls were brought back to the Michigan Animal Adoption Network a few weeks ago because their loving owner had a medical emergency, we put out the word that these two sisters needed a home. We were hoping that they would be adopted together but we knew what the odds of that happening were and we didn’t expect it to happen.
Apparently fate had other plans and brought the girls’ new family into the Pet Supplies Plus Store in Clinton Township. They had just lost their elderly cat a week ago due to illness and wanted to bring a new furry feline into their family. Of course when they saw K.C and Mandy they couldn’t adopt one and leave the other, so they adopted both of them.
We are very happy that the girls get to stay together and wish them years of happiness!
Her new mom reports that Roxie is already the queen of the castle and acts like she has always lived with them.
Sylvester is a very friendly, black & white cat that needed a home. He loves to be held, cuddled and brushed. Unfortunately due to allergies, his owner had to give him up. Sylvester is 7 1/2 years old, front declawed, neutered, vaccinated and healthy. The poor boy didn’t know what’s going on and he just wanted to feel secure. Sylvester went to his new home on August 4, 2011. This handsome, black/white fur ball joins a feline sibling and an adoring mom. He is going to be pampered and loved for the rest of his life. Congratulations to Sylvester and his new family.
Joey was adopted on June 10, 2011 and now has a canine brother to play with. Joey and Falcor, a cute, 10 month old, Poodle mix, hit it off perfectly. They were playing and “speaking” to each other within 10 minutes of meeting.
We wish Joey, Falcor, and Mom many years of happiness and joy.
The boys’ dad reports that both are doing well and are a joy to be around.
We wish Hagrid, Bob, and their new dad many years of fun, purrs and happiness.
Ms. Missy was adopted by a special person that is going to give her lots and lots of attention. She deserved a great home and she now has found it. Congratulations Missy! We wish you many more years of happiness.
From being abandoned at Macomb County Animal Control to living in a wonderful, caring household; Chase has come along way. We foresee many years of running, playing and having fun for Chase.
Congratulations to Chase and his new family!
He is a very sweet cat and loves everybody.
Pumpkin was adopted on February 12, 2011; just in time for Valentine’s Day.
We wish Pumpkin and his new parents a lifetime of happiness.
Benson & Gizmo
Benson and Gizmo are brothers that grew up together in the same household. Benson is 9 years old and Gizmo is 6 years old.
Due to foreclosure, their mom (who loved them dearly) relinquished both of them to the Michigan Animal Adoption Network. Both are friendly and adapted to their temporary home at Pet Supplies Plus in Clinton Township.
Yesterday a Christmas miracle happened! Both Benson and Gizmo were adopted by the same family. Their new mom called this morning to update us on how things were going. After 10 minutes of being in his new household, Benson acted like he had lived there forever. Gizmo is a little more timid but he is adjusting nicely.
Congratulations to Opie! He was adopted by his new dad on August 4, 2010. No longer roaming the streets of Detroit, Opie can enjoy the comforts of his very own home. We wish Opie and his dad many, many years of happiness.
Gus is one of the dogs we rescued out of Detroit. He was living in an abandoned house with a fenced-in yard for 2 years. A Good Samaritan neighbor fed both Gus and Buster for as long as she could and when she encountered financial issues, called the Michigan Animal Adoption Network to step in and help.
Gus was in our adoption program for a good 6 months. When he came to us, he was a bit timid and very clingy with his friend, Buster. Through the help of Bonny Wainz and her obedience training, Gus’ confidence grew. He made many friends at Camp Bow Wow and finally went to his forever home in November 2010. We could not be happier for our dear Gus!
We are ecstatic to announce that Sasha has found a forever home. She was rescued from the local pound July, 2010, when her previous family left her there because they didn’t have time for her. Sasha is doing well in her new home, almost seems like she has lived there her whole life her new mom reports. Congratulations to Sasha and her new mom!
From the rough streets of Detroit to the loving home of her new family, Maddie now has a great life ahead of her. Her new family loves her very much and she is going to be a “pampered pooch.”
We wish Maddie a long, healthy life with her new family.
Even though Murphy loved Camp Bow Wow, he needed a new forever home.
His new mom saw Murphy in the paper and fell in love with him. After meeting and getting to know him, she knew he was the one. Murphy will have a great life; jogging with his mom, lazy Sundays snuggled up on the couch and a backyard to play in.
We are just thrilled for Murphy and his mom!
Duncan, a handsome black cat, is enjoying a new chapter in his life. He lives with his loving, forever family; including his “twin” Seamus.
Seamus and Duncan have adjusted to each other after a little bit of time. They play, nap and spend quality time together. Life is good for Duncan!
Chloe Rose & Finnigan James
These cats got a second chance at life after being adopted by a wonderful family. Finnigan James (black & white) was the first to be adopted over a year ago and Chloe Rose (torti) was adopted in April 2009. Happy stories like this are great to hear. This is why we do what we do – help the animals!!!
Here is the letter I received in December 2009:
We have adopted two kitties from you (most recently, Chloe 4/09) and I am sending you a few photos of the two of them soaking up the sun and fresh air at our cottage on the lake . They are awesome travelers and head straight for the window ledges as soon as they are out of their carriers (after a quick stop to the litter box, of course). Food is always third on their minds!
I can’t begin to tell you how much love we have for these two new additions to our family.
Thank you, thank you!
Bobi & Family..and of course, Chloe & Finnigan (FKA “Lucky”)
Finally, after waiting a very long time, Anna found her perfect home. Anna and her mom are doing great!
Pooh Bear & Tigger
Pooh Bear and Tigger (mother and son) needed our help and a new home because of medical problems with their mom.
Even though these two kitties were friendly and sociable, it took a few months to find the perfect home for these cuties. We were able to place them together in a wonderful, forever home. Pooh Bear and Tigger are happy, healthy and well taken care of.
Pearl needed a new home because her original mom had to move into a nursing home. Luckily we were able to find her a new forever home rather quickly. Pearl has adapted well to her new home and plans on living a long, long time with her new family.
After being with us for about a month, Mia found a new loving, permanent home on May 9, 2008.
Here’s a picture of Mia on her new family’s bed. She is loving life!!!!!!
Apple and Pixie
Apple and Pixie were adopted by their new family on April 7, 2008 after being available for adoption for over 1 year. They actually came to VCA Royal Oak Veterinary Hospital as a team and were able to go out as a team. We are overjoyed that they finally found a wonderful family with which to spend the rest of their lives.
Mooshie is a purrfect addition for her new family!
The owners of Pet Ritz Lakeshore Resort in Roseville, MI were kind enough to let her board there until a new home could be found for her. Four weeks later and Snoopy found her new family: mom, Sue; her new dog sibling, Molly; and her new cat siblings, Ruby and Fiona.
|December 2008: Update on Snoopy, now known as Luna:Luna is happy, healthy and having the time of her life. Thank you to Sue for giving Luna a wonderful home!!!!
Cade & Stanley
Cade and Stanley were adopted by Lianna who adopted them after her cat died suddenly last fall. She is actually an employee at VCA Royal Oak, where some of our cats were fostered.
Cade and Stanley originally came from the Oakland County Pound where they were brought in as strays.
Athena, formerly called Baby Doll, was adopted by Jason who has another dog and who was looking for a Rottweiler. Athena bonded with Jason the moment she saw him, like they were made for each other. She is doing great in her new home and having lots of fun with her new family.
Athena Update: Athena was adopted from us in 2008, as you can see she is having a great life with her owner Jason. This is why we do what we do!
Thank you to all who contributed to his care and followed his progress.
We are absolutely in love, and talk all the time about how we can’t imagine not having him with us. He has been such a blessing, and he’s a perfect fit! He loves his daily walks and loves going for rides with Matt on donut runs on Sunday mornings. He gets along great with my parents dog, Ozzie (a white standard poodle) and he loves going to see “Grandma” in Kalamazoo and getting to play with Oz on the weekends.
He has been the best addition to our family that we could ever ask for. I can’t thank you enough for connecting him with us, and giving us a lifelong friend!
Thank you for all that you do!
Mojo was rescued from a local shelter because his time was running out. He had ear mites, fleas, ringworm and an eye infection. Mojo has since been adopted and is doing great in his new home and is a EXTREMELY happy and healthy cat now!
