A Heartwarming Story


A family passing through the area, stopped at McDonalds to grab a bite to eat. Their cat escaped and could not be found. This family was traveling from Travers City to Florida. They called the shelter and made a report, they also posted on a local Facebook site, Lost or Found Pets of Berrien, Cass and Van Buren Counties.  A month after they had been in Berrien County their cat was found and brought to the shelter. We then called them and they came down that day to get their beloved cat! How cool is that?!
