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

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
Cooper is a sweet boy that is FIV positive. Cooper came in with a mass on his foot and after his biopsy, it was determined that he had to have his whole back leg amputated. He has healed very well from the amputation. He bonded with Lilly during his healing period and we believe they need each other. We want them to be adopted together.
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.
Lilly is a 3 year old white and black female tabby that has been at the shelter since July of 2021. She had four kittens at the shelter all who have found homes. Lilly is overlooked because her front paws are deformed - they are turned inwards so she basically walks on her front joints. This doesn't stop her from getting around like any other cat. She runs and jumps and would love to have a loving family of her own. Lilly is bonded with Cooper.
Currently, Ada has been the longest stay cat at our shelter. She has an auto immune disorder and will have flare - ups occasionally. Not very often. It is treated with medications that are not expensive. She is a super sweet gal that prefers to be the only pet in the home. She is super loving
Scamp is a young boy that needs a lot of training. He has lived a life without much attention prior to coming to our shelter.
