Humane Society of West Michigan Assists with Animals Impacted by Hurricane Harvey & Irma

Our hearts go out to the victims of Hurricane Harvey & Irma– humans and animals alike. Our hope is that owned animals are reunited with their families so healing can begin.

Humane Society of West Michigan (HSWM) continues to ready our facility, and cultivate financial and other resources to help animals affected by this tragedy.  We will also remain a rescue destination with our transport partner ASPCA and other Southern shelters.   At the same time, HSWM remains committed to continue care of our local animals in need, as well as those in neighboring counties.

As of January 2017, 902 animals have been transferred to HSWM.  One of those transport animals was Abraham. He couldn’t tell us what was wrong, but his severely emaciated and badly scarred body was more impactful than words. We need you to help animals like Abraham, along with other shelter animals affected by Hurricane Harvey.

To provide critical support to animals in need, we urge you to donate to Humane Society of West Michigan’s Animal Relocation Fund. By giving to this lifesaving rescue program, your dollars will go into a fund designated for transport related needs.
