Adopting A Friend

HSMC Adoption Policy

We have many dogs and cats who need families and good homes. We take pride in caring for these homeless animals until we can place them with loving individuals who will provide them with a lifetime of love and care.

Persons who have an interest in a particular dog or cat, must fill out an adoption application. We will review the application, and check references as soon as possible, usually, within two days. Our goal is to ensure that we have a good match for both the adopter (family) and adopted (pet).

Who We Are

The Humane Society of Monroe County is a no-kill shelter. We opened in 1954 by a group of concerned citizens and currently operate with a small staff and a Board of Directors. We have a small limited intake shelter for homeless dogs and cats who are waiting for new homes.  We receive no governmental assistance or funding from the Humane Society of Michigan or the Humane Society of the United States for operating expenses. We are entirely dependent upon the compassion and generosity of animal lovers such as yourselves.
