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
Cooper is a sweet boy that is FIV positive. He is also going through a biopsy on his of his foot to see if his mass is cancer. He may need his leg removed. He is a love bug. Super friendly lap cat.
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.
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.
Chief is a super loveable young boy. He is just a very big boy that needs some extra training. He needs some leash manners and a large home to live in.
