Our spotlighted animals are ones that might not be considered as readily adoptable, whether due to their age, color, specific requirements, or simply because they've been overlooked for inexplicable reasons.

Jeannie is a charming 2-year-old Terrier mix with a zest for life and a playful spirit. She loves engaging in puppy antics and enjoys her daily walks with her foster dad. Although meeting new people can be a bit intimidating for her, she warms up with patience and love.

Jeannie is fully vetted, microchipped, and ready to find her forever home. She’s still mastering house training but is making great progress. Jeannie would thrive in a home with adults or older kids who can give her the time and attention she needs.

Are you ready to welcome this delightful girl into your life? Jeannie is eager to become your loyal companion and fill your home with joy and laughter.



Meet Luke, a stunning big boy with a heart to match his size. This brown/black beagle mix weighs approximately 60 pounds and has a healthy appetite. Luke's journey to our rescue was unfortunate; he was surrendered to be euthanized due to not getting along with a new dog in his previous home. At just 7 years old, Luke found himself in need of a new start.

Luke is housetrained, up to date on shots, neutered, and microchipped. Luke enjoys exploring the yard but prefers to be indoors with his human once he's done. He may seem a bit down since his life was upended, but we're hopeful that someone will offer him the loving home he deserves. Luke delights in walks and has been around children, though he seems wary of cats.

If you're seeking a loyal walking companion, Luke might be the perfect match. Luke's adoption fee is $175.00. If you are interested in Luke, please complete an application at



Fritter is a charming Siamese mix with a striking white and black coat. Born in July 2022, he is playful, sweet, and friendly. This adorable male cat has a lot of love to give and is looking for a calm, loving home where he can truly thrive. His affectionate nature makes him a wonderful companion for someone seeking a single pet to shower with love and attention.

Despite his friendly demeanor, Fritter has faced some challenges in his previous home due to the presence of other dogs and cats. These behavioral issues led to his return, and now he is seeking a peaceful environment with no kids or other pets. He would do best in a quiet home where he can feel safe and secure, without the stress of other animals or young children.

Fritter has been quite the sensation at our Petco location in Lake Orion, charming everyone he meets. Visitors are drawn to his striking appearance and sweet personality, but he keeps getting passed over. It's a mystery to us why this lovable cat hasn’t found his forever home yet. Fritter’s perfect family is out there; they just haven't discovered him yet.

To help Fritter find the perfect match, we offer a foster-to-adopt option. This allows potential adopters to see if Fritter is the right fit for their home before making a full commitment. We believe that once you spend time with him, you'll fall in love with his playful and loving nature.

If you’re ready to provide Fritter with the calm and loving home he deserves, please visit him at Petco in Lake Orion or contact us for more information. Fritter is eagerly waiting to meet his forever family. Adopt Fritter today and experience the joy of having this sweet boy as part of your family!

Adopting cats from Best Buddy Pet Rescue includes several important health services.
