Our Mission

At ShelterAnimal.org, our mission is to support and improve the lives of adoptable animals at publicly funded city and county animal shelters in Michigan. We are dedicated to finding loving homes for dogs, cats, and other pets that are in the care of state-funded shelters. By promoting adoption, providing resources, and raising awareness, we strive to create a brighter future for these animals and the communities they belong to.

Our Mission

To support and improve the lives of adoptable animals at publicly funded municipal animal shelters in Michigan.

Our commitment is to be a reliable source of information, guiding individuals in their search for a new best friend. We encourage prospective pet owners to visit local animal shelters near them, where millions of animals enter annually. Our efforts aim to increase adoption rates, ensuring that these animals find the safe and loving homes they deserve.

Recognizing that not all shelters are equal, we advocate for improvements in state-funded shelters across Michigan. We believe in maintaining state-of-the-art facilities and providing quality care for animals. By supporting these shelters, we work towards enhancing the well-being of the animals they house.

Furthermore, we understand the significance of lost and found pets. Our platform connects individuals who have lost or found a pet with the nearest public animal shelter. We help restore the bond between pets and their owners by facilitating these reunions.

We emphasize the three support pillars to achieve our mission: adopt, volunteer, and donate. We encourage individuals to adopt their new family members from shelters rather than buying from pet stores or breeders. By reducing demand for commercially bred animals, we address the issue of pet overpopulation and prevent the abandonment of unsold puppies and kittens.

Volunteerism plays a vital role in the success of animal shelters. We promote volunteering opportunities and encourage community members to contribute their time and skills to support shelter operations. Additionally, we facilitate monetary and in-kind donations to provide shelters with the necessary resources. By rallying support from the community, we ensure that shelters have the means to provide proper care and welfare for the animals in their custody.

Finally, we emphasize the importance of responsible pet ownership. We advocate for spaying and neutering pets, as it effectively prevents overpopulation and reduces the number of animals in shelters. By promoting responsible practices, we aim to create a more compassionate society where every pet can enjoy a loving and permanent home.

At ShelterAnimal.org, we are driven by our passion for animals and commitment to their well-being. Together with our community of supporters, we strive to positively impact the lives of adoptable animals in Michigan’s publicly funded city and county animal shelters.
