To promote the humane treatment and responsible care of animals in West Michigan through education, example, placement & protection.
Our vision is to build a more compassionate community where all animals are given the care they deserve.
Our Values and Beliefs Managed Admissions Policy
Humane Society of West Michigan manages animal admissions coming into our shelter. This means that we mindfully balance the number of animals we intake in order to continue providing the best care and shelter for our current animals. This admission policy requires the public to occasionally schedule an appointment in order for surrendering their owned animals to make sure that we have proper space available. This policy is based solely on space capacity and our goal to provide quality care without overcrowding. Our staff is dedicated to finding homes for all of our adoptable animals and this is only possible by limiting the number of animals admitted to the shelter.
