Pet of the issue

Meet the sister’s Contessa and Conchita. These two Chihuahua and Jack Russel mixes are eight years old, and have been together their whole lives. For that reason, BWHS volunteer Bonnie Carpenter insists that they go to the same home.

Guinness on wheels: part deux

In Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of the day that St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of the Emerald Isle. In Port Huron, St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in a much different fashion, involving a parade, buses full of drunkards, and enough Guinness to drown even the reddest of Irishmen.

Lucky times for Tripod

At first glance, he may seem like your everyday ordinary black cat, but take a closer look, and you’ll see that this normal cat is anything but.
He is known around the Blue Water Area Humane Society (BWHS) by three names, Lucky, Mr. Mom, and more commonly, Tripod.
