Example: Fido ready for his forever home

For illustration purposes only; not a real animal available for adoption


Fido is a frisky 6-month-old Beagle who's looking for a loving family to adopt and play with him. Fido is up to date on all his vaccinations and is ready for his forever home.
A fenced yard is needed to keep this playful guy close to home. Gets along well with kids and furniture legs.

For more information, contact the Acme Animal Shelter at 734-555-1234 or email

Visit the Acme Animal Shelter website for other animals looking for their forever home.


Welcome to Downriver Pets!

Welcome to Downriver Pets!

We intend for this blog to be the online place to go for everything about pets in Downriver.

One of the best parts of this blog will be the participation of the many animal shelters in Downriver. They will have the opportunity to post on this blog, meaning they can put photos of, and information about, the animals they have available for adoption here.

In turn, we'll publish those posts in The News-Herald.

Shelters will also be able to post other information as well:

  • Upcoming fundraisers
  • Upcoming adoption events
  • Special projects or programs
  • Seasonal pet care tips

Very soon we will invite officials from the animal shelters to our office so they can learn more about this blog (their participation is free) and we'll get this project officially underway!
