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
Jenny is a very lovable gal once she gets to know you. She will be a protective dog over her owners. Strangers will need to be introduced. She is very stressed at the shelter and needs a family very soon. Jenny came to the shelter pregnant and very unhappy. She had her pups and they have all been adopted but Jenny is still here. She needs a fenced yard, no small children and no other pets in the home. She will love you to the moon and back and protect you from everyone else at the same time.
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.
