The Humane Society

of southwestern Michigan - Benton Harbor, Michigan

We welcome you to The Humane Society of Southwest Michigan web site.

The Humane Society is committed to finding loving homes for our adoptable pets.

Please have a look around and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.

The Humane Society of Southwestern Michigan is a unique shelter in many ways. Unlike most shelters, we provide each and every animal with comfortable soft blankets, each dog receives outside playtime a minimum of twice a day, and we start each animal on its way to a healthy “new life” by providing standard vaccinations and routine blood tests. When selecting “forever homes,” the staff is diligent in searching for the best suitable home for each of our animals through our adoption application process. OPT TO ADOPT!!
