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!
Gulliver came to AC PAW after one of our volunteers received a call that someone was hearing a cat crying in the wall of their home. They finally cut a hole in the wall to find an almost lifeless cat. Gulliver was just four pounds and was dehydrated, malnourished, and suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection. He is about 12 years old, has put on some weight, and now has a clean bill of health. Gulliver is the sweetest, most gentle, and loving cat who still has many quality years left. You can meet Gulliver at PetSmart in Traverse City during our weekly adoptions or if you'd like more information about him, 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.
