Pets of the week: Rudy is happy to see everyone. Kimchi likes baths

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

Here are two of them.

Rudy is a 5-year-old, mostly brown American Staffordshire mix. Rudy came in as a stray and had some hair loss due to ringworm. He is better now and his hair is filling back in.

Rudy is a happy pup, always happy to see everyone. He plays well with some of his kennel neighbors. Rudy is very treat motivated and likely able to learn some basic commands quickly. Instead of a chocolate rabbit this Easter, how about a new chocolate pup?

Kimchi is a beautiful, long haired brown and black tiger cat. She was surrendered by her owner who had lots of great things to say about her. She did well with a toddler and dog in her previous home.

Kimchi likes baths, she loves to be brushed, uses the litter box well and enjoys sleeping with her human.

You will notice that Kimchi has a fine tremor and seems wobbly at times. This is because she has Cerebellar Hypoplasia or wobbly cat syndrome. Her movements can be jerky or uncoordinated causing a loss of balance.

Dog adoptions require an application, online. A meet-and-greet with a dog is also 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 am to 4:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 am to 7 pm Thursday and 10 am to 4 pm Saturday.
