We all fell in love with 1 year-old Terrier mix, Fern, when she stopped by FOX 17 Morning Mix for our Friday's Friend segment. Currently with the Humane Society of West Michigan, she has a very small stature, sweet face, beautiful eyes and loves a good scratch behind the ears. Currently, she is kenneled with one other dog but dog-to-dog meetings are always advised.

To adopt Fern or any other animal, please visit HSWM located at 3077 Wilson Dr. NW, Grand Rapids or give them a call at 616.453.8900.

Upcoming events:

Brushes with Benefits (Oct. 24th 6 PM - 8 PM) - Brushes with Benefits provides everything you need for a creative and fun night on the town: canvas, paint, brushes, and a 2-3 hour step-by-step walk-through of a beautiful painting.
