Shelter Update: We are currently housing many animals that are needing special care including a diabetic cat and a dog that was hit by a car and needs to have her ACL repaired. We are asking for donations to our Zeke Fund which helps us provide specialized medical treatment for animals such as these. Please check out our "Special Needs Pets" tab for more information or call us at (231)723-7387. Thank you!

All intakes are done by appointment only. Due to our shelter being at high capacity you must be put on the waiting list before relinquishing your pet. We take animals in Manistee county before serving other counties. Please call us at (231)723-7387 to make an appointment to be put on the waiting list. Thank you for your understanding at this time and we apologize for any inconvenience. Please remember to spay and neuter your pets! Vouchers available by local spay/neuter group SNAG, please call the shelter for more information.

         Spotlight Pet: Bandit

Bandit is a loving Aussie mix who is looking for his new best friend. He is an alpha male so will do best in a one-dog home. He loves to be outdoors, go camping, go for walks and just love who he is with. Bandit is a sponsored pet and has a lowered adoption fee as well. He is up to date on shots, vetted, neutered and all ready to go. If you feel as though you can give Bandit a perfect furever home please call or stop in today!
