Contact, Hours, & Directions

All three of our locations are now open, with safety precautions in place. Below you will find very specific details on our thrift shop, spay/neuter clinic, and shelter.  You will see some changes when you visit; we have installed sneeze-guards at payment counters, we are limiting the number of people inside each of our locations at one time, keeping surfaces sanitized, have posted safety signage, and our staff/volunteers will be wearing masks inside. We are doing all that we can to ensure that our adopters, thrift shoppers, veterinary patients, donors, volunteers and staff are safe.

Thank you for your continued support and patience while we navigate these changes for everyone’s safety.

OPEN: Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Adoption appointments will be offered Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Important Visit Details:

For cat adoptions, please wear a mask and we will provide gloves. Dog adoptions take place outside, and where six feet of distance cannot be maintained, please wear a mask per the recent Governor’s order. *Please note if you arrive at the shelter without an appointment, you will be asked to make one and return another day.

Be sure to read on for all details regarding the adoption process. If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please visit us on our page here:…/mcmi…/homeward-bound-pets-or238/ and answer all the required questions.

To do this, click the purple button on the bottom right of the website, “Ask about (pet name)”. That will allow you to send us a message where you can answer the questions on that page.

Once you have submitted those answers and we contact you, we can move forward with a meet and greet. If you arrive at the shelter without an appointment, you will be asked to make one and return another day.

Our shelter staff is operating with a skeleton crew and we ask that you refrain from sending multiple social media messages, emails, and leaving several voicemails, as this only impedes our ability to respond in a timely manner.

*Please note it may take our staff 3-4 business days to return your messages and we genuinely appreciate your patience.

Cat and Dog surrenders by appointment only.
