Adoptable Pets in Michigan

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

A Compassionate Director 3.3 average

We work as a team no one person is doing this alone. We do deal with many people who do not believe in the same rescue ideals as we do and, as such, post negative comments, but we are happy to discuss each of these individual's stories and why they posted what they did. There is always a story a two sides of a story are better than one.

If I could give zero stars, I would. Jayne is rude and unprofessional.

The MAC vehicle of pet placement & retention is driven by Jayne, who's compassion, direction, loyalty and facilitation of best practices is never ending, ensuring furever is a daily reality we strive for, as dedicated members

Our director is very hard working and compassionate when it comes to animals.

Jayne is horrible and nasty towards anyone who does not back her up. Anyone who calls her out for the acts she's committed, she attacks or tries to sue them. Stealing a dog from a young lady who simply wanted to help the puppy, that wasn't hers to begin with, thus stealing the dog and then ultimately hiding the dog...from a 13yr old young lady.

Proactive Redemptions 3.3 average

We have taken in many a lost pet and held them for stray holds or until the owner can be found. We work with the community to make sure as many animals are microchipped as possible and have distributed tags and collars for easy identification. We do not, as Amy Koblos defamatorily states take animals from people. Again, Amy Koblos has never met anyone in this organization and literally lives 200 plus miles away from our rescue location.

All of MAC animals are microchipped, making finding our lost members more of a reality. And less likely to become a shelter statistic.

Volunteers are either ran off or forced to speak on her behalf and try to intimidate those who stand up against the corrupt, unethical, deceitful acts committed by this rescue.

Events are our mantra. PetSmart, local community events, adoption fairs, joint rescue events anything positive that we can do to share our wonderful dogs. Facebook is daily updated with all the current news and animals up for adoption.

We work with several accredited dog trainers when we have behavioral animals and make sure the animal is well adjusted before it is ever adopted. Our medical care is also superior and we provide a complete set of medical records when we adopt out an animal

All Michigan Animal Crew dogs receive top notch medical care, preventative & life saving. Also, their Fosters socialize, train, & provide healthy environments, keeping vet appointments, bringing familiar positive reinforcement techniques into the daily routines of our animals.

Fundraising under the guise that they're 501c3 when in fact their 501c3 status was revoked in May 2016, and publicly posted in August 2016. As of October 17th 2016, they've yet to file to reinstatement.

We have a wonderful adoption program with meet and greets, home checks and adopter checks well before the animal is adopted. Sadly, there are people we do not adopt to and those people like Ms. Perry on this page or Amy Koblos who have never worked with our rescue, are facebook trolls and have no knowledge of rescue other than to negatively impact anyone's ability to save animals that give rescue a bad name. We have never taken a dog, bullied people or treated anyone badly. Unfortunately, the Perry and Amy Koblos of the world exist and we, as a rescue, choose to ignore and continue on our mission. We have never meet nor dealt with Ms. Perry or Amy Koblos and challenge there defamatory comments

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.
