Pet of the Week: Diesel loves to snuggle under the covers.Mock and Mindy are a couple

JACKSON, Michigan – Diesel, Mork and Mindy are just some of the many animals in the Cascades Humane Society looking for a home to love forever.

Diesel is a mix of the Miniature Pinscher, but you can also see a lot of dachshunds in him. He was brought to CHS because his owner unfortunately couldn’t keep him anymore.

Diesel seems to be picky about his canine friends, but when he enjoys their company, he enjoys playing with them. He doesn’t seem to like cats either, but he likes to snuggle under the covers with his owner and give nice hugs.

As for toys, Diesel likes chew toys and bones the most. He is only 5 years old and has been sterilized, vaccinated, protected against parasites and microchipped.

As their names suggest, Mork and Mindy are very loving kittens. The two boys (yes, despite his name, Mindy, he’s a boy) are both 8 and an intimate couple who need to go home together.

Mork is a bit outgoing, but the two kittens have definitely come out of their shells a lot since arriving at CHS. They love being stroked and rubbing your face on you, claiming you are theirs.

Mork is the larger of the two, with nice grey tabby markings. Mindy is slightly smaller and has a brown tabby coloration. Both of them are great for kids of all ages and would make great family pets.

Mock does not get along well with the dog in the house because it overwhelms him, so we advise against having a dog in the house.

Cascades Humane Society, 1515 Carmen Drive, open to the public Tuesday through Saturday noon to 6 p.m.

All dogs and cats at the Cascades Humane Society are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and protected against parasites prior to adoption. Those who adopt pets can also get free health checks from 24 area veterinarians.

Dog owners wishing to adopt another dog must meet and greet their dog and the dog they choose to adopt.

CHS has also added services to its sterilization and sterilization assistance program. This service is offered during scheduled neutering or neutering procedures and includes vaccines, heartworm testing for dogs, FIV and FeLV testing for cats, and dental procedures.

CHS also has a pet food pantry that can help families in financial hardship. CHS accepts cat or dog food donations as long as the food is in its original packaging. Donors can drop food in the pole barn at the back of the facility. The Pet Food Pantry is open on the first Saturday of each month from noon to 2 pm.
