Welcome To The Humane Society
of Midland County
The Humane Society of Midland County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization who now run the new Humane Society of Midland County Shelter (previously Midland Animal Control). Focused on the care and adoptions of the homeless pets in Midland county. It is managed by a director, with 3-4 part time staff and many caring volunteers.
There are adoptable animals and there are strays. The strays can be adopted after a seven day period required by law for dogs. If you are interested, you can put your name on that dog to be called after the seven day period. Cats are not legally bound to the same seven day period. All animals are required to be spayed or neutered prior to adoption, if for some reason they are not, then a prepay with your veterinarian will need to be done before adoption. If they are not old enough, a prepay document is drawn up with the adopter’s veterinarian and it is highly recommended this alteration be done as soon as the animal is old enough.
There are many opportunities for members and volunteers in the way of fundraising, educating, working at the shelter cleaning, walking the animals or just offering comfort to those who are scared. We are in constant need of foster homes, transport vehicles and drivers, creative ideas and more things than we can list. We need YOU. If you think you can’t work directly with the animals because you will bring one home, there are plenty of other areas you can work in and are needed. Please consider.
We also run a Pet Pantry for those who can’t afford to feed their pets, hoping this will be a small part of allowing them to keep their animals. We are at Petsmart with our foster animals, (every Saturday 11am-3pm) and Soldans has graciously accommodated a cat condo which has shown to be very successful for the Humane Society cats.
If you would like more information, we’d love to hear from you!
