We've saved and improved the lives of animals since 1897

For nearly 120 years, the Kalamazoo Humane Society has been at the forefront of animal protection and welfare efforts throughout our region and our state.

Each year we serve thousands of pet owners, many of whom are in difficult circumstances, by providing:

Our work doesn’t stop there. Working with our volunteers and supporters, we provide humane education services to promote responsible treatment of animals, and we advocate for laws that help keep animals and our community safe for generations to come.

A top priority is ensuring that the Kalamazoo Humane Society has the professional, family-friendly space it needs to meet current and anticipated demands for its crucial services. Over the next year, a group of dedicated community leaders will be asking for your help in raising $4.75 million to construct a new facility. When complete, our new home will allow us to expand programs that reduce the number of shelter animals through education and access to veterinary services and assistance.

Please join us in supporting the Compassion • Prevention • Results campaign as we seek to safeguard animals by serving the families that care for them.
