Dear supporters and customers of The Almost Home Animal Shelter,

On Friday, May 22nd, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extended state’s stay-at-home order through June 12, 2020.
The shelter is closed except for essential animal care and essential animal services.
Our employees will be staying on staff to make sure that our shelter animals emotional and physical needs are met. When animal care is complete we will not be at the shelter.
Phone messages to the public will be returned as soon as possible. Appointments can be made during morning hours when staff is there cleaning.
We are still the safe place for strays to be brought in and be reunited with owners. Police have 24 hour access to our building.
Collections of returnable and recyclable cans are suspended for now. Please feel free to dispose of them elsewhere for now. This could last for months beyond the stay at home orders.
Continue to stay safe and stay healthy!

Featured Pets


Candy is a 6 yr. old spayed Shepherd/Lab mix. She has a pretty brindle coat. She can get overexcited at times and just needs an assertive owner as she is willing to please. She is friendly, housebroke and walks well on the leash. She would be best with older children, she doesn’t mind cats, and should meet potential dog friends.


Venus is a 1-2 year old spayed female. She came to us as a stray. She is sweet and quiet. It is unknown how she is with other cats, dogs or cats.


Flo is a 4-5 month old spayed female. She is shy and timid. A quiet home is best so she doesn’t get overwhelmed. She is good with feline friends. It is unknown how she is with dogs and children.
