HOW DO I ADOPT?

  • NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY

  • Browse the adoptable animals at Humane Society of West Michigan either in person or online

  • View "How to Prepare Your Home" for the new addition to the family

  • Come visit HSWM and fill out an application and meet with an adoption counselor in order to get approved for adoption

  • Meet with animals who are a good match for your lifestyle and family

  • Be ready to take the new family member home! Some animals are ready to go home the same day while others may still need a final vet check

   Application: Dog | Cat | Working Cat | Small Critter

 

Please note: before meeting any animals, you MUST be approved for adoption. This includes being pre-approved by your landlord if you rent or lease (trailer parks, condos, apartments and homes).
