Say hello to Friday's Friend, Blackberry! He's a kitten who is full of energy and is ready to find a family that is ready to cuddle and play.

Remember if you want to adopt Blackberry, the Humane Society of West Michigan is holding an adoption special on kittens: adopt one, get one free!

There's also an adoption special on dogs. Now through July 7 adult dogs are $125 and includes vaccinations, spay/neuter, a vet exam, and a microchip.

The fourth of July is coming up and we want to help families prepare their pets for the celebration! Here are some things ASPCA recommends for pets and fireworks:

  • Keep pets indoors with proper identification tags/collars on
  • Provide a quiet, comfortable space for your pet during the noise
  • Play soft music or TV as a distraction from loud noises
  • Keep all fireworks out of reach of pets to prevent them from ingesting dangerous chemicals
  • If needed, speak to your vet about medication to ease stress
