JACKSON, MI – Libby and Buck-O are just two of the many animals at Cascades Humane Society that are looking for loving forever homes.
Libby is an older gal at age 9. She’s a Dachshund mix and has adorable white and black dapple markings.
Sadly, her owner just died and the family was not able to care for her. Libby can be a little shy at first, but once you spend a few minutes with her, she warms up and begins to show it by wagging her tail. Then she will seek you out more, lean on you and even give you kisses.
Libby isn’t a huge fan of treats here, but she absolutely loves squeaky toys. Libby has been spayed, microchipped and brought up to date on vaccines. She does have heartworm disease, but CHS is treating her for that. Come meet this sweet senior lady today.
Buck-O has an unusual name, but his story is unfortunately not unusual – his owner became ill and could not take care of him anymore.
At 14 years old, one would think he would have a hard time adjusting to the shelter environment, but he has done very well. He is very sweet and friendly. He loves to look out the window and do some bird watching.
Buck-O loves his ears and head rubbed, and will seek sunny patches to nap in. He has been neutered, brought up to date on all his necessary vaccines, microchipped, and has tested negative for FeLV and FIV.
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.
Those considering adopting Libby, Buck-O or another pet can apply to do so here. Adoptable pets can be viewed at For more information, call 517-787-7387.
