Mission Statement

The mission of the Humane Society of Monroe County is to provide a safe and healthy temporary home for lost, surrendered or stray animals and to seek superior permanent homes to ensure their long-term welfare. Through education and advocacy, the Humane Society of Monroe County will promote the humane treatment of companion animals and will work toward reducing and ultimately eliminating pet overpopulation in Monroe County.


The Humane Society of Monroe County was founded in 1954. We are a small no-kill animal shelter in southeast Michigan. The HSMC has placed over 30,000 animals into loving, permanent homes. We operate a shelter where stray abandoned or surrendered animals receive care: food, shelter, medical attention, and love. The society also promotes the humane treatment of animals through education; attempts to re-unite lost animals with their owners, and promote spaying or neutering of pets to control the population of unwanted animals.

The Humane Society of Monroe County is governed by a volunteer board of directors. We employ a small but dedicated staff to care of the animals, operate the shelter and conduct our outreach programs and events. The society does not receive government funding. Our budget is comprised of fundraising events, membership, cage sponsos, donations, and shelter operations. A dedicated group of volunteers provides invaluable assistance in conducting our comunity outreach programs, running our thrift store, and working at events and fundraisers.

Volunteer work does a lot for your future. It shows a lot about you, as well. I haven't personally volunteered with the Humane Society, but I know a couple people who have and they say that it's a great experience.
