Pets Make Life Better
You will save a life
The Manistee County Humane Society/Homeward Bound Animal Shelter is a NO Kill shelter. Healthy adoptable animals are available for adoption as long as it takes and will never be euthanized due to space or time at the shelter
If you adopt an adult pet, there's a possibility you can avoid some of the hassles related to house-training and teething, which are associated with puppies and kittens. Of course, if you prefer a puppy or kitten, shelters have plenty of those available as well
You'll save money because adoption costs less than buying an animal from a pet shop or breeder
Perfectly "perfect" animals of all breeds, shapes, ages and sizes are available at shelters. Just because an animal ends up there doesn't mean there is anything wrong with them. They are just in need of a second chance
You just might meet your best friend

We will not adopt out an animal as an outdoor pet. On occasion, we will have some cats that will qualify for the barn cat program. We will advertise when we have barn cats available
Whitney is a very lovable gal. She came to the shelter from a cat rescue and she is ready for a new home. She wants a quiet household and a lap to lay on.
Ada is a friendly lovable gal that is very outgoing and playful. She will need a home with no other pets. She does not care to share her space or her people with other animals.
Bella is a very friendly gal that loves to go on walks and play in the yard. She likes kids old enough to play with her and love her. She needs a home without other pets. She is hoping there is someone to love her and adopt her
Zip is a wonderful gal that came to the shelter with her friend Zoomer. They are a bit nervous of people at first and will need some understanding and love to get them to be comfortable. They would love to be adopted together. See Zoomer on our cats page.
Milo can use your help. He is a 5 year old male Chihuahua mix who needs plenty of time to get to know you. Once he knows you well, he is your best friend. He will a quiet home with no kids and no other animals. He will do well with other small dogs to play with if properly introduced. No cats please.
