YAY! My first kitty! Brooke, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought in Almond, a 2 month old, domestic short-haired kitten. He is a lovable, precious and curious kitten waiting to go home to somebody that can give him a lot of love!

Almond and the rest of the kittens at the shelter are available for $95. However, there is a "Name Your Own Price" Special going on right now for all cats 5 months and up. So whatever you feel the cat you're going to adopt is worth, you pay! Just make sure to be generous because all the proceeds help out the shelter. The special runs through August 31st.

In addition, the 3rd Annual Bark in the Dark Fundraiser will be on Saturday, October 10th at the Riverside Park at 7pm. It's a 5K Fun Run & Walk for you and your dogs! If you want more information or to register visit the website barkinthedark.org. All proceeds benefit the Humane Society of West Michigan. You can start collecting donations now!

And as always, if you want to check out all the animals available at the shelter I recommend going there and seeing all the critters for yourself. The shelter is located at 3077 Wilson Dr NW in Grand Rapids. You can also give them a call at 616.453.8900 or visit their website so you can see what the shelter is all about and view the gallery of pets.
