JACKSON, MI – Rein and Socks are just two of the many pets at Cascades Humane Society that are looking for loving forever homes.

The CHS staff can’t get enough of Rein. He’s a 3-year-old Blue Heeler Mix with a lovable personality and unwavering loyalty. At first, Rein might be a bit shy, but don’t be fooled – once comfortable, he’ll shower you with love and tricks. Sit, shake, down, and touch are just a few of the impressive things he knows.

Looking for a furry friend to brighten your days? Rein is the perfect choice. He gets along great with dogs, kids and even cats. Rein’s gentle nature and patience makes him a fantastic fit for any family.

Rein is all set for adoption. He’s neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is housebroken, too.

Meet Socks, the purr-fect friend you’ve been searching for. This 6-month-old gray-and-white furball is as sweet as they come, with the cutest white paws that inspired his name.

It’s hard to resist falling in love with him right away. Socks is all about affection and playtime. He loves batting at toys and has this adorable twitchy-purr thing he does in his sleep. Ready to add some joy to your life? Come meet Socks at Cascades Humane Society.

Socks is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and negative for FIV and FeLV.

Rein and Socks want to make sure you know about Wine and Whiskers, CHS’s fundraiser at Sandhill Crane Vineyards, 4724 Walz Road.

For your $35 ticket, you receive a commemorative glass, a wine tasting flight or a full glass pour and a personal charcuterie plate. Enjoy your own wine and food pairing (or “purring” if you will) at your leisure in an intimate setting now through the end of August. Tickets can be purchased at Sandhill Crane Vineyards or online at

If you think Rein or Socks could be your next perfect, furry family member (or members), then please stop in for a visit. Cascades Humane Society, 1515 Carmen Drive, is open noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

All dogs and cats at Cascade Humane Society have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and given parasite protection prior to adoption. Those who adopt pets also receive a free wellness checkup from any of 24 area veterinarians.

Dog owners wishing to adopt another dog are required to do a meet and greet with their dog and the dog they’re choosing to adopt.

CHS also has added services to its Spay and Neuter Assistance Program. The service, available during scheduled spay or neuter surgeries, includes vaccines, heartworm testing for dogs, FIV and FeLV testing for cats and dental procedures.

CHS also has a Pet Food Pantry to help families going through financial hardship. CHS accepts cat or dog food donations, as long as the food is in its original packaging. Donors can drop off food by the pole barn behind the facility. The Pet Food Pantry is open from noon to 2 p.m. on the first Saturday of the month.

Those considering adopting Rein, Socks or another pet can apply to do so here. Adoptable pets can be viewed at For more information, call 517-787-7387.
