Harbor Humane Society

About Harbor Humane Society

Harbor Humane Society offers dog and cat adoptions to veterans in Ottowa County through its partnership with Pets for Patriots, and will help them find their new best friends. In operation since 1956, the open admission facility provides a range of animal welfare services through a contract with the county and is currently working to achieve “no kill” status.

In addition to its main shelter, Harbor Humane Society offers offsite adoptions at various pet retailers throughout the community in order to increase the adoption potential of the animals in their care. As part of its commitment to reduce pet overpopulation in the county, the organization offers spay/neuter vouchers to income-qualified individuals.

Harbor Humane Society welcomes monetary donations, as well as in-kind contributions of non-clumping cat litter, newspapers, dog toys and other pet, office and cleaning supplies. See their complete wish list for details. For a more hands on experience, become one of their valued volunteers or pet fosters. Please note the shelter is closed the first Monday of every month.

Distemper, bordetella and rabies vaccinations
Flea topical
Heartworm test
Microchip for permanent identification
Coupons and/or discounts for local pet businesses
One free month of pet health insurance (dogs only) with valid email address
