Pets of the week: Grunge has big, green eyes. Rockaway has puppy energy


JACKSON, MI — The Jackson County Animal Shelter, 3770 Spring Arbor Road, has many pets available for adoption.

Here are two of them.

Rockaway is a 7-month-old American Staffordshire mix who came in as a stray. He is a friendly guy with lots of puppy energy and curiosity.

Currently Rockaway is a tad bit on the thin side, but he is going to be a medium sized dog. Someone with the time to spend to teach him some basic commands and learn how to walk on the leash would be ideal. He is an eager learner and is house trained.

Grunge is a 7-year-old solid black shorthair cat that came in as a stray. Grunge has been at the shelter since May because she came in with a burned area on her back.

The burned area was treated, is shrinking, looking better and does not seem to bother her. She is the first one to come to greet you in her cage. Grunge gets along well with the other cats. Her big green eyes are so bright and beautiful.

Dog adoptions require an application, online. A meet-and-greet with a dog also is mandatory. A cat room walk-through is available to test reaction. The dog adoption fee is $150 for medium and large dogs and $250 for puppies and small dogs, which includes vaccinations, microchip and sterilization.

Cat adoption fees are $60 for one cat, $80 for two, which includes applicable tests, vaccinations and spay/neutering.

Visiting the shelter is always best, but other adoption resources include online applications at, faxing 517-780-4750 or emailing [email protected].

The shelter’s current hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
