Akon and Acaro are Baileys Harbor brothers, born in the spring of 2010. They are affectionate and good with the Door County Humane Society (DCHS) volunteers. Akon and Acaro may be adopted individually, but why split up a pair? As part of the effort to give our longest-term residents the best opportunity to find a real home, the adoption fee is lowered from $85 to $50. The Buddy Plan kicks in as well so a second cat is free. Akon and Acaro are neutered and vaccinated.

This medium size girl is Shelby, a seven-year-old Lab/Husky mix. Shelby was surrendered by a Sturgeon Bay family who could no longer afford a pet; she has been at the shelter since Memorial Day weekend. Shy Shelby would like potential adopters to know that she is happy to meet you, but at first she may bark a bit and be a little reserved. A nice leash walk around the shelter trails is a good ice-breaker, and Shelby loves to be outside. One of her most favorite things in the world is car rides, and she is a little lady sitting in the back seat. Shelby is spayed and current with vaccinations. Adoption fee is $120.

The Door County Humane Society, located at 3475 Park Drive (County PD) 
in Sturgeon Bay, is open for adoption Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon – 4 pm. For more information call 920.746.1111 or visit

Buy a brat, help a homeless animal. On Saturday, Sept. 3 at EconoFoods from 10 am – 2 pm, volunteers from the Door County Humane Society will be grilling outside, as well as collecting donated supplies inside. Thank you for your generosity.
