Pets of the week: Maya is one smart dog. Sweet Tiffany was dumped at a stranger’s house

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

Maya is a 10-month-old chocolate-colored pointer who is one smart dog. She knows tons of commands and is eager to please her humans. And she learned the CHS agility equipment easily and happily for treats.

Maya also is as beautiful as she is smart. Her soulful eyes will make you fall in love with her instantly. She loves going on doggie play dates and playing at the park. If you have a dog in your home currently, we will want to do a meet and greet to make sure it’s a good fit (please bring proof of current rabies vaccination for your dog). Maya is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Discarded and dumped at a stranger’s house, Tiffany was lucky that good Samaritans brought her to CHS – not only for her, but for the well-being of her four kittens.

Tiffany was a relaxed mom to the 8-week-old kittens, so quite possibly this was not her first litter. She, and her kittens, were spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.

Tiffany is a very loving and sweet girl who enjoys having her belly petted and will wiggle around in her bed so you can do that. This loving 3-year-old has gorgeous dilute torti coloring and beautiful eyes. Come see for yourself.

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.

Those considering adopting Maya, Tiffany or another pet can apply to do so here. Adoptable pets can be viewed at For more information, call 517-787-7387.
