Here are a few of our favorite friends, ready to make their forever homes with you!


COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the shelter in place order issued by Governor Whitmer today, the CAHS shelter, and offsite spay and neuter clinic, will be closed March 24 through April 13. We will not be performing adoptions or routine intake appointments during this time. Please know that we will be here to care for the animals, and respond to animal emergencies in our community. We understand that the animals still need us. During this closure, we will be answering phones Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. If you are experiencing difficulty feeding your pet, please contact our Shelter Manager, Anne Enright at [email protected] Our Pet Food Bank will be open, by appointment, to help pet families impacted by job loss and lack of resources.



In light of recent developments regarding COVID-19, we have have decided to postpone our annual Fur Ball Gala to ensure everyone's health and safety. We are currently trying to reschedule this life-saving event, and will share this information once we have a date confirmed. We are extremely grateful to all of our Fur Ball sponsors, those who have already purchased tickets, and those who have donated auction items. We will provide an update soon.
