HOW DO I ADOPT?

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


To speed up the adoption process, please bring the following items with you:

  • Fill out the adoption application before arriving at HSWM.

   Application: Dog | Cat | Small Critter

  • Bring your current pet's medical history
