Who We Are

The Greater Hillsdale Humane Society operates the only animal shelter in a small, rural community in southern Michigan. We are a nonprofit organization and receive our financing from donations, fundraising and adoption fees.

Adopting a friend

All potential adopters are required to fill out a screening application. Vet and personal references may be checked and a home visit may be required prior to adoption. Animals adopted from the shelter will be up to date with their vaccinations. Dogs will be heartworm tested and are on preventative. Under state law all animals are required to be neutered or spayed. We make sure ALL pets adopted are spayed & neutered prior to going home. We receive many Heartworm Positive dogs. We need financial help in order to keep treating these poor HW positive guys & girls. If you can send us even a small donation, it could mean the difference of life & death for one of these sad cases. You can make checks out to G.H.H.S. ( Greater Hillsdale Humane Society) and send it to the address listed below. Even if you are not able to do an entire treatment, every little bit helps.

Pit Bulls.... GHHS does allow Pits to be adopted by qualified homes. We do not adopt out aggressive Pit Bulls. Pits can be wonderful pets. To adopt one of our Pits you will need: A reference from a vet, own your home, no children under 8 years old & have a home visit.

Volunteer Opportunities

When weather permits we take the shelter stars on the road to where the people are in order to find them homes. We can always use volunteers at these events. There is nothing quite as heartwarming as watching these dogs and cats go to forever homes. Volunteers are also needed to help at the shelter. Volunteers must be at least 18 or accompanied by an adult. If interested, please contact Renee at
