A strong storm will be crossing the Ohio Valley Sunday, bringing snow to West Michigan, with some areas perhaps seeing as much as 10-14" of accumulation. Snowfall will be heaviest south as opposed to north, so near/south of I-94 is where the highest accumulations are expected... 10-14" possible. However, Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Ottawa, and Kent could see anywhere from 6-10". Additionally, gusty winds will be blowing the snow quite a bit, causing drifting on roads along with poor visibility. Travel is discouraged from late Saturday night through Sunday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for the following counties in West Michigan, effective until 6 am Monday: Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, Kent, Ionia, Ottawa, Van Buren,  St.Joseph, Branch, and Hillsdale. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Muskegon, Newaygo, Mecosta, and Montcalm  until 6 am Monday.

Furry Friend 3-22: Molly

Furry Friend 3-22: Molly story image
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Today we're introducing you to an animal in need of a home.

Every Tuesday and Friday, Newschannel 3 is featuring an animal up for adoption from the SPCA in Kalamazoo.

The SPCA is a no-kill shelter and takes in animals from local animal control groups and others around the country.

They have in-house veterinary care, so all their animals are spayed or neutered, up to date on their shots, and treated for fleas.

The SPCA also takes great care to make sure the dogs are socialized.

In addition, the SPCA features an extensive foster network, so if the animal is struggling with the shelter environment, it can be placed into a foster home until it is adopted.

Today's pet is Molly, a 3-year-old beagle.

She's very happy and sweet, and has come a long way.

Police officers removed Molly from a home where her owner kept her chained outside in the middle of January, and when she arrived at the SPCA, she was extremely sick and undernourished, weighing just 14 pounds.

She's much better now, as she is back up to 23 pounds.

If you're interested in giving Molly a permanent, loving home, call the SPCA at (269)344-1474.
