All of our rescued animals are in foster homes. Our adoptable dogs can be seen at Petsmart on 28th Street at East Paris in Grand Rapids the first and third Saturdays of the month and our cats the last two full weeks of the month. Our cats are also at Pet Supplies Plus on Alpine at Four Mile, Kalamazoo at 60th, 28th Street across from Woodland Mall, 28th Street in Wyoming, and Wilson Avenue in Grandville. Cats can be visited at these locations during regular store hours. All adoptable pets are tested, spayed/neutered, and vaccinated, and dogs are microchipped.

If you find your "soul mate" furever friend at PetSmart or Pet Supplies Plus, you can complete an adoption application on the spot, and a store associate will fax it to us for review. Or you can complete an adoption application online at our website

Please remember to visit our adoption partners, PetSmart and Pet Supplies Plus, for all of your pet needs. We could not do the rescue work we do without the help of these great partners!

Who We Are

Safe Haven Humane Society is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, run totally by volunteers dedicated to animals. We are a total "foster home" rescue group and are always looking for foster homes and new volunteers to help us with our very large, very rewarding task. If you can help with donations of supplies or funds, or can provide a foster home (we provide the food, supplies and medical care; you provide a temporary home and lots of love), transport animals or help us with adoptions, please contact us at or 616-522-1611.


SHHS is in need of donations to help with medical costs and foster care of each of the animals in our program. There are many, many homeless dogs and cats in county animal shelters and we rescue animals from shelters who euthanize for space. In order to do that, we really need your help. Any donations would be appreciated.

Adopting a friend

Adopting or fostering a pet from Safe Haven Humane Society is one of the most gratifying things you will ever do. You can save a life and the pet will give you unquestioning love. We adopt animals to great homes all over Michigan. We do welcome out-of-state adopters, but we do not ship pets under any circumstances. Adopters must be willing to come see the pet in person prior to finalizing the adoption.

The process of adopting an animal is easy! You pick out the pet(s) you would like to adopt and fill out an adoption application.
