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

Love at first site
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
Adela is a very loving gal that came to the shelter after being found outside with a group of other cats. She was a very sick gal and is healing. She is on medications and doing well but would love very much to live in a home to call her own
Karol is a very loving gal that is depressed in the shelter. She really needs family that will play with her and give her all the attention she deserves.
Snowball is a wonderful beautiful Long hair female that is in need of an understanding home. She is very affectionate when she wants to be and she enjoys being groomed when she wants to be. She will let you know quickly when she is done with the attention.
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.
Joni came to the shelter through animal control. She needs a home without any children and no other pets. She would do best with only one owner or an older couple with a fenced yard. She loves going on walks. She has a fear of going to the Vet. She needs experienced adopters. Please come out and meet her.
