AC PAW Animal Rescue

AC PAW was founded to give animals in northern Michigan a second chance at life. Since 1995, we have rescued over 8,000 dogs and cats and have placed them into loving homes.
Who We Follow

FOUND CAT: Is anyone missing a very sweet and very vocal cat in the Fife Lake, MI area?

Hi, I’m Cricket! I may be 9 1/2 years old, but I have a lot of life and love in me. I am so loving!! You can hold me and pet me as long as you want. I will even start purring the moment I see you, because I am so filled with love. I used to have a family, but they didn’t take the best care of me. I kept getting feline upper respiratory infections (URI), which are similar to the human cold. I get them easily, but I take an antibiotic to clear it and I’m soon back to my normal healthy self. I think I’m a pretty great cat to have around the house. I take medicine easily and never get mad. Will you be my forever home?

Loki was found at a gas station in Traverse City during one of the coldest weeks in January. He had an eye infection which led him to lose his left eye. Later we found out he has an underdeveloped optical nerve which gives him tunnel vision in his right eye. Loki is extremely loving and playful and he enjoys just sitting on your lap. He is a great cat who would love to be your best buddy. Loki does not do well with other cats so he will need to be in a home where he is the one and only kitty in the house. He also would do best in an adult home where there are no young children. He does have special needs, but his foster mom and dad say he is a wonderful cat that just needs to find the right forever home. There are other cats in his foster home, so Loki has to stay confined to one room. They would love to see him in a nice quiet home where he has lots of room to run, play, and explore. You can meet Loki at PetSmart this Saturday! We hope someone will open up their heart and have just the right home for this very special guy. Loki is a mostly white short haired kitty with black markings. He is a little over a year old.

Meet the kitten duo, Bonnie and Clyde! These two cuties were found wandering together, but on their own in Leelanau County. They were only about 5 weeks old and should have still been with their momma, but she was nowhere to be found. They were both very scared and cautious at first, but they have come a very long way since being in AC PAW’s care. Bonnie is a bit more friendly than Clyde and will fill your lap with awesome purrs. Clyde will always be there to look after his little sister and they really want to stay together forever. They are good with all of the other cats in their foster home. Bonnie and Clyde would make a great addition to any home with or without other cats. With a little time and gentleness they should also adjust easily to cat-friendly dogs. 

Stop by PetSmart and visit Bonnie and Clyde during our special ‘Buddies Adoption Weekend’! They will have a special reduced adoption fee.

Congratulations to our kitty, O’Malley! He was officially adopted last night to a wonderful home!! His new home has another AC PAW kitty, so he will have a buddy to play with. O’Malley had been with our rescue for over a year! He came to us as a stray with open wounds on his back. After a lot of vet appointments and trying different cat foods, his loving foster mom finally found a food that O’Malley could eat without allergic reactions. We will miss this special cat, but couldn’t be more excited for him and his new family!! \u003C3

Our foster homes are filled to capacity and we are overwhelmed with dozens of calls each day for more cats in need. In hopes that we may be able to find homes for some of our cats, in addition to our special “Buddies Adoption Weekend” we are also having a “Cats with Special Needs Adoption Weekend”! We have many wonderful cats with special needs who would love to find a forever home. We will reducing their adoption fee to $50.00. We hope you will open up your heart and join us this weekend at PetSmart in Traverse City to give these cats a second chance for a new life in a loving home which they so deserve.

Two are always better than one, right???

Our foster homes are filled to capacity and we’re still receiving so many calls for cats in need. In hopes that we may be able to find homes for some of our cats, we are holding a special “Buddies Adoption Weekend”! Please stop by PetSmart this Saturday and Sunday to meet our nine sets of littermates or best buddies. We would love to see these wonderful cats adopted together to the same forever homes. We will be reducing their adoption fee to $100.00 (a two for one adoption fee). Please open your hearts and your homes to our cats in need!

Raven’s owner sadly passed away and a friend asked if AC PAW could help Raven find a new forever home. This sweet girl has been a little sad with all of the changes in her life. We would love for her to find a home soon where she can be her true happy self. She is a bit shy, but she loves to be petted and loved. Raven is a very pretty five year old black short haired kitty who is front-declawed. You can meet her at PetSmart during our weekend adoption hours!

We are so sad tonight to hear of the passing of our beloved St. Bernard rescue, Zoe. I know many of you in our Facebook community followed her story as she was waiting for a home for quite a while. Zoe could not have found a better and more loving forever home. We send our love to the Vanderheide family tonight. \u003C3
