Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Little Traverse Bay Humane Society aims to be a regional leader in Animal Welfare. We intend to increase our lifesaving efforts by rescuing and rehoming more homeless animals year-over-year. We will become the largest low-cost animal service provider in Northern Michigan. We will continue to grow our community outreach programs to curb overpopulation and positively impact euthanasia rates. We will become the only full-service provider for post-adoption animal care services in our region, ultimately becoming the "go-to" for daycare, boarding, grooming, training, and veterinary care. Finally, our long-term goal is to become the region's 24-hour emergency care provider.

By building a separate animal intake facility on our campus, we will increase our capacity for housing dogs, particularly those requiring medical or behavioral treatment prior to adoption. We will continue to grow our inter and intrastate transport programs to rescue animals at-risk of euthanasia. Additionally, we are committed to the buildout of a robust foster program so that animals have the best chance at adjusting to life in a home and recovering from medical treatment or receiving appropriate time out of the shelter environment. We have hired a Shelter & Community Medicine Veterinarian and Technician to launch our Shelter & Community Medicine programs, which will allow us to care for hard-to-treat cases, and to offer low-cost services for owned pets, including spay/neuter procedures and vaccinations. We have purchased a new building to expand our client service offering, which includes daycare, boarding, grooming, and training. We are actively recruiting additional veterinary staff to grow our public medical services and to eventually launch emergency services for our area.
