He wants his toy! [TSM][/caption] 

Oliver is a 3-month-old lab/boxer mix puppy who is so energetic and playful but you won't be able to resist his cuteness. You can adopt Oliver now at the Humane Society of West Michigan. Puppies are $300 but they go home spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and micro-chipped.

Keep in mind, puppies come with more responsibility so make sure its one you're sure about taking. To help get you started, consider puppy obedience school/training classes. The Humane Society offers training classes for both adult dogs and puppies.

If you're thinking about adding an animal to your family, January is a good time to adopt because through the end of the month, you can take advantage of a couple specials including:

  • Adult dogs (5 months and up) are $100 off which means they are only $75 to adopt.
  • Adult cats (5 months and up) have WAIVED adoption fees!

Maybe a cat or dog isn't what you're looking for. You're in luck because Hamma Montana, an adult potbelly pig, between 40-50 pounds, is looking for her forever home. Potbellies are indoor/outdoor pets so its best if you have a yard they can walk around and dig in. But a potbelly pig will also hang out inside and maybe take a nap with you :) You can take Hamma home for only $50.
