COVID-19 Compliance Reminder

With the Stay-at-Home orders lifted in Michigan, we have resumed our normal shelter open hours, Monday to Friday, 12 to 7 pm, and Saturday, 11 am to 4 pm.

Appointments to adopt are no longer needed, but you may certainly request one. Please be aware, however, that when you visit us we may ask you to wait outside or in your car so that we can maintain appropriate social distancing in the shelter building.

Lucky Paws Event Update

Since the annual event scheduled for March 13, 2020, had to be postponed because of the pandemic, we are looking to schedule at the earliest possible date when we can hold the event safely. We are investigating an outdoor option for the late summer or early fall. Tickets already sold will be honored at the rescheduled event, and additional tickets will be available.

Looking for Volunteers

Dedicated volunteers are our most valuable asset. We simply can’t be successful without the services of dedicated volunteers. You can volunteer to help in many areas including walking dogs, socializing cats, helping at adoption events, becoming an adoption counselor, making phone calls from home, transporting animals to and from the vet, office tasks, providing support at fundraising events, and becoming a foster care provider.

Animal Rescue Project

Animal Rescue Project focuses on saving at-risk pets in pound facilities. We save homeless pets, one at a time, give them medical care and a safe temporary home, and provide responsible adoption services to those seeking pets.
