Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the people of the Eaton County Area including Charlotte, Grand Ledge, Delta Township, Olivet, Eaton Rapids, Bellevue, and Potterville.

About Our Shelter:

We are a small, volunteer based humane society. We have 1 full time employee, all others volunteer time to our shelter. Most of our animals come from animal control. We pull them before they are scheduled to be euthanized, provided that they do not have any severe temperment issues, then find them the homes that they are so deserving of. We are very passionate about animals and do not feel that there are "bad" animals! We are constantly looking for volunteers to help around the shelter with cleaning and caring for the animals. We also look for volunteers to come walk our dogs and help get them seen at our pet adoptions. Additionally we are also in need of board members; passionate animal advocates who are willing to contribute their professional skills allowing our board to grow and thrive.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have a shelter in downtown Olivet, that is open to the public Monday through Saturday. Our business hours are Monday-Thursday from 2-5 PM, Friday from 2-7 PM, and Saturday from 12-3PM.

We hold adoptions on various weekends throughout the year at PetSmart on Marketplace Blvd in Lansing as well as Petco in Battle Creek on Beckley Rd.

Our Adoption Process:

In order to ensure our animals are a good match with prospective adopters, our screening process includes a pre-adoption questionnaire to clearly understand the adopters' home and lifestyle. Each adopter is screened by the adoption counselor, carefully considering the information provided in the questionnaire. If approved, the adopter completes and signs the adoption contract.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
