Beamer is a miniature Schnauzer looking for a loving home.

He is a very photogenic dog who loves to play, cuddle, and gives very good kisses! Beamer is 10 years old, so his adoption fee is only $50!

In addition to the many dogs and cats in the shelters, the Humane Society of West Michigan has a lot of fun events coming up this weekend too!

On Saturday, July 9, The Bissell Pet Foundation and Daddy Daughter Time are having a special screening of the animated comedy "The Secret Life of Pets."

There will be a pre-show party starting at 1 p.m. with a special group of adoptable dogs from HSWM. These dogs will be available to bring home with no adoption fees. Each dog comes with a take home gift packed with great dog essentials from Bissell.

The movie will shortly follow at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 which includes a movie ticket, popcorn, and pop.

Also on Sunday, July 10, join the world's biggest dog wash!

It'll be going on during the Whitecaps' "Dog Days" game, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

In addition to the dog washes, there will also be grooming, doggy bag giveaways, and dog contests including longest ears, dog/owner lookalike, and best dog trick.

It costs $10 per dog, and the money will go toward the children's cancer and grief program at Gilda’s Club.   Afterwards, those wanting to bring their dogs into the game can buy a ticket and enjoy the game with their pet.

The Humane Society of West Michigan is located at 3077 Wilson Drive NE in Grand Rapids.

If you want to adopt Beamer or another furry friend, call (616) 453-8900.
