About Us


  • It's an extreme makeover, kitty style! We are in the process of revamping our cat room- this will include new kennels, additional windows for more light, and an outdoor cat enclosure! This is all part of our overall goal to create a more enriching experience for ALL of our animals. To make this dream a reality, we could really use some help. The cost of our new kennels is expected to be $500. Can you donate towards these necessary items? No amount is too small and really does help. You can mail or drop donations off to
    MHS/2640 Marquette/Muskegon/MI 49442. Also, we now utilize Paypal for online donations. Visit www.paypal.com and use the email address office@muskegonhumanesociety.org as the recipient. On behalf of our 'purr'fect kitties, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
