Adopt your next best friend.
SW Michigan is home to dozens of shelters and rescues.
Aren't all humane societies shelters?
The Kalamazoo Humane Society is an independent, private non-profit organization and we are not associated with the Humane Society of the United States, Michigan Humane or other neighboring humane agencies. Some humane societies offer sheltering and adoption services, and others like ours do not. Sometimes, we work with or offer assistance to other humane agencies when our help is needed.
With so many rescues and shelters in southwest Michigan, our efforts are better spent on prevention of unwanted puppies and kittens, as well as education and assistance for pet owners.
Our services help shelters and rescues by allowing them to focus on animals that truly need rescuing. In fact, we have been so successful in reducing pet overpopulation locally that many local rescues are looking out of state to find animals!
