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
Cece is a very lovable gal. She came to the shelter at no fault of her own. 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.
Princeton is a very friendly boy that loves to go on walks and play in the yard. He likes kids old enough to play with him. He needs a home without other pets. He is hoping there is someone to love him and adopt him.
