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!
Lilly came to AC PAW with her friend, Abby. They were owner-relinquished as their owner could no longer care for them. Lilly is in a foster home and her foster mom says that she is just a sweetheart! She loves attention and loves to be brushed. Lilly would love to be in a home where she is the one and only kitty. She is very intimidated by other cats, especially if they are aggressive. She is a very beautiful long haired 5 year old gray cat. You can meet Lilly at PetSmart in Traverse City this weekend or for more information about her, 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.

We are competing in the 2013 Swingshift and the Stars! Together with HANDDS to the Rescue we have formed a non-profit coalition, No Unwanted Pets. Our animal rescue organizations have distinct yet similar missions. Our common mission is the promotion of spay and neuter; thus the formation of the No Unwanted Pets: Spay/Neuter Coalition of Grand Traverse Area. United together, the mission of this coalition is to reduce the pain and suffering of dogs and cats caused by the devastating overpopulation problem in our area. For more information on this coalition, please visit the No Unwanted Pets Facebook Page.
Join us this fall as No Unwanted Pets competes in Swingshift and the Stars! Our local celebrity dancer, Dr. Jen Klabunde of Northwood Animal Hospital, will be representing No Unwanted Pets. We ask you to join us, to donate, and to help spread the word about spaying and neutering in the Grand Traverse Area so someday we will no longer have unwanted pets from careless breeding.
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 18th 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 over 7,500 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, blankets, towels, collars, or any kind of miscellaneous items would also be greatly appreciated.
