What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adopt a Shelter Pet

We provide humane care for unwanted, abused and injured animals. We work to prevent cruelty to animals, and place adoptable pets into good, permanent homes with responsible owners and promote spaying and neutering to prevent overpopulation.

Population(s) Served
Adults

While there are a multitude of reasons for the need to surrender a pet, the cost of feeding is one of them. That is why we have started our Pet Food Bank.

This is a community resource intended to keep pets with their families and out of shelters by providing pet food for those in need.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

The number of community cats in the United States is estimated in the millions! Many of these cats end up in shelters and are euthanized every year.
In a large effort to help the animals, we have awarded All About Animals Rescue with a TNR grant to help spay/neuter community cats.
If you are a Macomb County resident and participating in the TNR efforts, we invite you to come into the shelter for these program voucher(s).
There are a limited number of vouchers available through this grant and some restrictions apply.
All About Animals also provides low-cost medical care for owned pets. Once a month an All About Animals transport vehicle arrives at the shelter and helps provide low-cost spaying and neutering to public pets. The pets are picked up from our location and transferred to All About Animals for surgery and medical care. The pets are then transferred back to the shelter to be reunited with their owners.
If you are interested in contributing to this effort or have questions, we invite you to stop in.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Humane education has shown to improve empathy, reduce bullying and increase problem solving skills. We started with a summer camp in 2020 and are seeking to grow this program

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

The Humane Society of Macomb is a no-kill shelter working to:
- provide a safe refuge for all animals whether found, surrendered or displaced
- help the community to control the animal population
- ensure that all animals adopted to the community are safe and healthy
- to keep families and pets together

The Humane Society is a no kill shelter investing in training, medical care and education providing staff to ensure the safe refuge and utilizing enrichment procedures to create fulfillment.

Our spay- neuter requirements and our TNR programs and grants offered help control populations in the county.

All animals are fully vaccinated and microchipped to provide healthy, adoptable animals.

We have staff trainers are on site and work to make sure that animals are safe to place in an adopters home.

Our pet food bank allows those in need access food for their pets.

We provide a yearly budget item to help train both our shelter staff and our medical team.

All staff have been trained to go above and beyond to ensure pets are walked, enriched and played with daily.

Every animal is either spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We provide a sizable grant for our Trap Neuter Release program and offer traps to assist community members catch feral cats.

We increased volunteers from 15 to more than 500.

We redid the shelter's kennels to provide a better experience for the dogs and cats.

We separated dogs and cats to reduce animal stress.

We partnered with Hill's Science Diet to provide a consistent food and improve the dietary needs of the animals.

We opened a pet food bank to ensure that no pet owner has to surrender their animal due to a lack of ability to pay for food.

We have offered training for our staff and the community.

We are in the third year of offering a humane education summer camp.

We separated the adoption and surrender areas of the shelter to be more sensitive to the emotions of those individuals while in our shelter.

Animal assessments on intake and prior to adoption were initiated to ensure compatibility with other animals and/or children to improve placements.
