Sanilac County Humane Society
The only independent NO KILL shelter in the Thumb of Michigan!
Watch for upcoming 2023 events HERE!
There was something for the whole family at Dog Days of Summer 2022!
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, August 12 – for – Dog Days of Summer 2023!
Our mission is to provide shelter and medical care and find new homes for homeless pets; provide community outreach programs, as well as reduce the number of unwanted litters through our spay/neuter programs.
SCHS is a private non-profit humane agency caring for more than 1,200 animals each year and relies solely on private donations.
If you donate money to the Michigan Humane Society or to the Humane Society of America, you are not donating to us. The only way we keep our doors open is by monthly donations that are given to us by people like you.
If we could get only 525 people to have $20.00 donated from their credit card or from their checking account monthly, it would keep our doors open all year.
Depending upon availability, we take in adoptable cats and dogs with prior approval.
WHAT WE DO
Our adoption process is focused on the welfare of the animals.
Make an appointment to have your dog or cat micro-chipped.
Our animals are the ones listed at Sanilac County Humane Society.
