About Humane Society of West Michigan
Humane Society of West Michigan offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans in the Grand Rapids area through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends. The organization is an open-admission shelter, which means it accepts all animals regardless of age, medical condition or disability, and there is no time limit for how long a healthy, adoptable animal can stay up for adoption.
Founded in 1883, the Humane Society of West Michigan has a proud history of promoting the dignified treatment of animals in West Michigan. As part of its commitment to humane education and responsible pet ownership, the organization offers dog obedience and bite prevention classes, youth programs and access to an on-staff animal behaviorist for pet training issues.
Humane Society of West Michigan welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of pet toys, treats, kennel supplies and other essentials; see their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet foster families.
