Who We Are

Humane Society of Midland County is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes for unwanted and abandoned animals. Our small staff and dedicated volunteers operate and manage the only animal shelter in Midland County. In 2011, HSoMC took over management from Midland County Animal Control and became a “no kill” shelter.

Our Mission

We provide temporary shelter and care for displaced animals, promote responsible pet care, and enrich our community through animals.

At the Humane Society of Midland County, our staff works hard on behalf of the animals in our care and the people in our community. Because of their hard work and diligence, we can find homes for thousands of animals, many of whom come to us in tremendous need of behavioral and medical care. They work hard behind the scenes, so we can continue to do what we do as the only animal shelter in Midland County.

What We Do

HSoMC is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of homeless animals, including abandoned animals, neglected animals and strays in our community. We take in dogs from other shelters that have reached capacity so that they have a chance at adoption, rather than being euthanized. We will not refuse or euthanize an animal that has a treatable medical condition. All animals are fixed, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. Since 2011, we have found homes for approximately 2,000 animals per year and have one of the highest adoption rates in the state.

In addition to adoptions, HSoMC supports our community through youth programs, animal welfare education programs and assistance programs, including a pet pantry and low-cost spay and neuter services. Furthermore, our volunteer program offers extensive opportunities for concerned and caring individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of animals. We also have a robust foster program, which provides temporary homes for animals waiting for “furever” homes, along with a safe haven for those with special needs.

HSoMC does not receive dedicated governmental funding and relies on grants, fundraising, donors, and our dedicated staff and volunteers to provide these valuable services and programs.
