There isn’t much to do these cold winter days except to curl up on the couch with a good book. But the moment you get up to go to the bathroom, the cat steals your spot.

If you live around Traverse City, or just so happen to be in the area on Friday, February 21st, stop by the Brewery Ferment and raise your glass for a good cause! You’ll be able to purchase a custom designed AC PAW pint glass for $7.25. A portion of each custom glass sold will go toward helping the animals of the AC PAW rescue, and you’ll also receive a special card. If you show the bartender your card, a portion of every beer you buy at the Brewery Ferment in the next six months will go to the AC PAW as well. So on top of enjoying delicious beer, you’ll also be helping the AC PAW in their efforts to spay, neuter, vaccinate, and care for local homeless animals. If you’re not much of a beer drinker yourself, you could always purchase the pint glass and give it (along with the card) to a friend who will put it to good use and help raise funds while just simply enjoying a nice, cold drink. Here’s to helping the animals! Cheers!

Here's all the details!

Somehow, when the rest of Michigan is sick and tired of snow, Ozzy can’t seem to get enough of it.

Just a friendly reminder that February is National Pet Dental Health Month!

We hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day!!

February is Wild Bird Feeding Month, and with how rough of a winter we’re all having this year, we’re sure our feathered friends will appreciate any extra help they can get!

On top of the satisfaction that comes with doing a good deed, you’ll also be able to enjoy taking a moment to just sit back and watch the birds. Plus, you might be surprised by the other visitors that come along for the free eats. (I know a lot of people get mad with the squirrels when they eat out of bird feeders, but they gotta eat too, so I say the more the merrier!) My parents’ neighbor has been feeding the local birds, squirrels, and ducks every single day for decades now and I’m sure it’s helped see them through some pretty tough winters.

If you’ve got kids, why not get them in on the fun too by teaching them how to make bird feeders of their own? They’re really easy, and I know I loved making them when I was a kid. There are lots of different ways to make DIY bird feeders, but the easiest one I remember doing just required a pine cone, peanut butter, bird seeds, and string. All you have to do is spread the peanut butter over the pine cone and then roll it in the seeds. Then just string it up somewhere for the birds. Trust me, the birds and your kids will both be happy! 🙂
