AC PAW's founders encourage you to subscribe to the online magazine, Pet Friends Magazine. Every real animal lover will find this read interesting as editor Jennifer Isbell writes about many different issues that affect our friends. Many of us are not as aware as we should be about all the issues, both local and broader, and this magazine will bring insight and provoke thought. We want to thank the editor of Pet Friends Magazine for this effort on behalf of the animals.
Donations are a vital part of the AC PAW existence. Without your help, AC PAW’s success would not be possible. 94% of every dollar raised is used for direct care (food, kennels, veternarian care, etc.) for the thousands of dogs and cats we save.
Please show your support today!
AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
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 to him losing his left eye. Later we found out he has an underdeveloped optical nerve which gives him tunnel vision in his right eye. He is extremely loving and playful and he enjoys just sitting on your lap. Since then, Loki does not get along with other animals and is confined to one room; the foster parents would love to see him in a nice quiet home that he can explore. It would be best if he was in a home with no young children. Loki is a very handsome white kitty with black spots and short hair. For more information about Loki, please contact us today.
Every year between 6 to 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters across the United States. Out of that number, 3 to 4 million are euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them.

AC PAW started as a vision of two people, Brian Manley and June McGrath, to ensure a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease, and death. AC PAW was founded to give these animals a second chance at life. We all know too well the over-population problem happening at animal shelters, so one of our core missions is to spay/neuter all of our rescued animals prior to adoption. We are officially begining our 19th year of volunteer service, with a handful of dedicated volunteers and a small number of donors. AC PAW began on July 1, 1995 and was officially incorporated on Jan 16, 1996. During this time we have rescued and placed nearly 8,000 dogs and cats into loving homes. We are always looking for animal lovers willing to put some time and effort into volunteering or becoming a foster home. Any kind of donations such as financial support, pet food, litter, blankets, towels, collars, or any kind of miscellaneous items would also be greatly appreciated.
