All Animals Deserve Love

Reasons To Adopt A Pet

Animals are killed in shelters daily across the country

Ruby was adopted in 2018

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

Senior dogs are overlooked because they are deemed to be to old

Hairy was adopted in 2016, he was 8 years old

 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 

Breeders charge hundreds to thousands for a dog

Litter of puppies that breeders will charge hundreds for each puppy

 You'll save money because adoption costs less than buying an animal from a pet shop or breeder 

There are many reasons why pets end up in shelters

 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

Animal Adoptions

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

Missy is a lovely Tortieshell that is very shy. She is not a cat that will let you pick her up. She will do great in a home where she can have the run of the house to catch you mice. She will come to you when she feels like it. She can be very lovable at times and will allow you to pet her. She will need a lot of time to warm up to you. Please give Missy a chance in your home.
