This little cutie's name is Sage.

Before we continue, I need to stress that I really tried to snag a good picture of Sage. But, she proved to be a little wiggle worm who was much more interested in exploring the studio than posing for a picture. Here she is "yelling" at me.

With that being said, Sage is a 3 month old kitten currently at the SPCA of SW Michigan. She has lots of energy, she's ready for playtime at all times, and was very vocal about not wanting to be in her little carrier. But, what an adorable little meow! Sage would probably be best in a home with other animals (dogs or cats) and would be great in a home with children. They can tire each other out!

I got her to snuggle for just one moment to try to capture at least one good photo. This was the best I could do:

Sage is up to date on her shots, fixed, microchipped and ready to be adopted! Remember, if you rent you must bring a copy of your lease and if the SPCA of SW Michigan always encourages a meet and greet with your other animals before you adopt.

You can find the SPCA's hours, other adoptable animals and more on their website.

Upcoming Events

If you're a fan of baseball, you can attend an upcoming game while also helping out the SPCA of SW Michigan.

Bark in the Park is happening August 6th at the Homer Stryker Field. A portion of every ticket sold to this Growlers game will go towards the SPCA of SW Michigan! You can find more details here.

Fostering

We talk about fostering a lot during Dog Days because it's so needed. Shelters are overrun right now and fostering creates space for future, incoming animals. Plus, the animal you foster will get a break from being in a cage and relax in the comfort of your home.

Food and medical costs are covered. All you have to do is give the animal a temporary home. You're helping them become more social which makes them more adoptable. It's a win-win! If you're interested in fostering you can contact the SPCA of SW Michigan here.
