Pets of the week: Gomez has a silly bark. Measles is as unique as her name

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

If you’re looking for the sweetest dog ever, Gomez is the one for you. He is a 4½-year-old, medium-sized mixed breed, and is a love-bug who loves to cuddle and just so happens to have the most soulful eyes.

Gomez is famous at CHS for his bark. When he thinks no one is paying attention to him, he lets out the silliest bark you will ever hear. Gomez needs to find a forever home with no small dogs and no cats. He likes to play ball and chew on his bones, and he knows how to “shake” already.

Gomez has been neutered, microchipped, is up to date on vaccines and has tested negative for heartworm.

Measles is as unique as her name. She is a 5-year-old female cat who ended up at CHS after her owners died. Measles is a beautiful tortie cat who has gorgeous markings.

Measles is a bit shy but can be a sweetie once she warms up to you (which happens quickly, by the way). In her past life, she liked to hangout on the bed and couch, and she would love to do that again in a forever home.

Measles would do best in a quiet and calm environment. She has the best purr to show off when you pet her – you will fall in love. Measles is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

Cascades Humane Society, 1515 Carmen Drive, is open to the public from noon to 6 pm 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 pm on the first Saturday of the month.
