Available for Adoption





Meet Diesel! This spunky guy is a year old boxer/pitbull mix. Diesel came to us after suffering at the hands of a neglectful owner. He is a very intelligent boy who already knows “sit” and “focus”. He will need a home that has the time and patience to help him finish learning all the necessary things a doggy should know. Like all dogs, Diesel will flourish with love and caring home. This wiggly butt with surely win you over and make your heart skip a beat!

Meet Katie, a super sweet 9 year old girl looking for a second chance at a ‘fur’ever home.

Katie has spent her entire life faithfully devoted to her owner, but when health concerns warranted her rehoming, and with no available family to take in lovely Katie, the tough decision was made to surrender her to MHS. This darling lovebug has lived her whole life in the care of a senior citizen, so she is most familiar with quieter environments. Likely Katie will thrive best in a home with a senior, or an empty nest couple.

Don’t be put off by her age! With routine and responsible veterinary care, cats can EASILY live well into their upper teens, meaning Katie could give you a good decade at least of love and companionship. If you are interested in adorable Katie, stop in and visit with her today. You won’t be sorry!!

Thanks for looking!
In addition to our cats at the shelter and for your convenience, we also have a variety of fantastic felines available for adoption everyday at offsite locations:  the Grand Haven Chow Hound, Petsmart on Sherman Blvd. in Muskegon and the Holland Pet Supplies Plus.

Please stop by one of these spots to visit with our furry friends and let one of them steal your heart away!
