Our Admitting policy has recently changed. Effective immediately Humane Society of West Michigan will only be admitting animals which have previously been spayed or neutered. If you have an unaltered animal that you would like to surrender please contact us on or after JANUARY 28TH.
For admitting altered animals or euthanasia please call 616-453-8900 ext. 216
An appointment is required to admit an animal in order to ensure we have space available. Please email email@example.com or call (616) 453-0175 or (616) 453-7492.
After reviewing the resources above if you are still unable to keep your pet please be aware that an appointment is required to admit an animal into our care to ensure we have space available. When you bring in a stray or owned animal we ask that you pay a $35 Transfer of Care Fee, which will cover a small fraction of our costs for admitting the animal and caring for his/her needs.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is extremely important to come to your appointment at the scheduled date and time. If you are not able to make the appointment, we require that you either call or email to cancel or reschedule your appointment before the scheduled appointment time. If you fail to come at the scheduled time and do not contact us to cancel/reschedule, a $10 appointment fee is required before we will reschedule the appointment.
Please note that HSWM does not accept checks.
Prior to your appointment, please fill out the following form (one per animal) and bring any veterinary records that you have for the pet you are surrendering. Be prepared to provide information that will assist us in properly placing your pet in a new home.
