Chairman Waffles is a domestic shorthair with black and white coloring and big green eyes. He might sound like a ton of other cats with that description, but this special kitty has undergone three different surgeries (including a partial reconstruction surgery) since December, and he really needs a home.

Waffles arrived at the Michigan Humane Society’s Detroit Center for Animal Care as a stray who had severe damage to his face, nose and tongue, which were covered in chemical burns. They think he may have gotten into something he shouldn’t have while looking for something to drink as a stray.

Though Waffles has been through so much and no longer looks like most other cats, this experience has not damaged his spirit whatsoever. He loves to give kisses and cuddle. He’s a very friendly cat, as you can see by this video, and could really use a home where he can get all the love and attention he deserves.

While under the care of the Michigan Humane Society, Waffles has made another special friend with a fellow foster kitty named Mr. Burns. Mr. Burns has had a lifelong condition which causes him to sneeze a lot. Because of this condition, Mr. Burns also has mild nose and eye discharge. Waffles and Mr. Burns have become so close, that they would do especially well finding a loving home together. If anyone out there is interested in giving their heart and home to these special felines, you can e-mail Dr. Amy at amyhess@hotmail.com for more information.

Even if you may not be the one to be able to adopt them, you can still help by simply spreading the word. Never underestimate what you can do for an animal just by sharing their information with others. You never know who your message might reach in the long run and what amazing changes that person could make for an animal in need.

If you want to share Waffles’ story on Facebook to help get the word out there, the Michigan Humane Society posted this picture with his and Mr. Burns’ story that you can easily hit ‘share’ on to help pass it along. It takes only a second, but might make a huge difference.

Typically when people think of the kinds of gifts they can give for Valentine’s Day, certain things may come to mind… flowers, candy, that big heart-shaped box of chocolates. But this Valentine’s Day why not consider a different type of gift?

The Michigan Humane Society will be holding their 2013 Valentine’s Telethon this February 14th on WXYZ Chanel 7.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be put toward the care of homeless animals, and those who have been abused and neglected.

Since the Michigan Humane Society gets no government funding, all donations are crucial and every dollar counts. You can either donate to the telethon by phone or donate online. Donations online can be done securely at the Michigan Humane Society’s website: http://www.michiganhumane.org/site/PageServer

Cute fluffy puppies for the win! Sunday isn’t just about the Super Bowl, it’s also about the most adorable game to ever be played, the Puppy Bowl! That’s right, Animal Planet will be airing their annual Puppy Bowl tomorrow at 3pm, so be sure to tune in if you don’t want to miss out on all the fun.

As if watching a bunch of cute and rambunctious little puppies play on a mini football field wasn’t enough to make you want to watch, the Puppy Bowl is also a big promoter for pet adoptions! Information about how you can adopt rescued pets is available during the program, which makes it educational as well as entertaining. And though it is called the ‘Puppy Bowl’, there are plenty of other little critters that get in on the fun as well, including kittens at half-time, hedgehog ‘cheerleaders’, and of course the hamsters. What more could you ask for?
