Your new best friend could be waiting for you at the SPCA of Southwest Michigan

The SPCA of Southwest Michigan is always searching to find loving homes for animals in our community. The need for kind homes and donations for the animals is always high, and we hope that during the holiday season you don't forget about our fury friends!

If you are looking to adopt join the SPCA for their PetCo Adoption Saturdays! It’s a great way to meet the animals and talk with SPCA of Southwest Michigan volunteers and staff! Pick up your pet supplies from PetCo while you’re here!

The event will take place on January 12th from 1 am to 3 pm at the PetCo in Portage (6280 South Westnedge).

Of course you can always stop by the shelter!

Other things happening at the SPCA of Southwest MI...

During the holiday season, the SPCA will be celebrating our animals with a giving tree. We have a couple different options for our giving tree. You can check out our website (or stop into the shelter) and choose an animal to buy a toy or treats for, you can sponsor an adoption fee (or a portion of an adoption fee), or you can make a general donation to help care for the animals. On average, it costs $34 a day to house animals at our shelter and any little bit will help. Stop into the shelter today to help make these animals holiday a little brighter!
