Goals for the Community

Our services are designed toward helping the community feel confident in making an informed decision regarding their choices. When they choose to relinquish their animal, we help them successfully cope with their feeling of loss by providing assurance that their animal will be safe until there is an opportunity for the animal to be placed in a new home. We will assist the community in achieving the goal of a happy, healthy and rewarding relationship with their pet in order to avoid having to relinquish their pet. We will provide them with referrals for education, veterinary help and support services as needed.
We offer the following for our communities:

Whether it's food, litter, or bedding (straw, etc), we are here to help those who need it for their four-legged family members.  If you or you know someone who has fallen on hard times, reach out to us.  We're here to help you and your pets!

We offer low-cost spay and neuter services every 1st & 3rd Weds of the month.  Call (231) 839-3800 to schedule.  Call today as appointments fill up quickly.

MHS offers low-cost microchipping for your pets and peace of mind.  
Low cost of $20 per pet which includes registration before you leave the shelter!  Call (231) 839-3800 to schedule an appointment.

We know how difficult it is to surrender a pet to a shelter setting.  If you pet is spayed or neutered (we require proof) and for a donation - we will list your pet on our websites and give your pet(s) more exposure.  This not only allows you to screen your potential adopters, but also will help prevent from having to surrender your beloved pet.  Please know that we treat the animals here like they were our own.  If you do need to surrender, your pet(s) will be given the best of care!
