Shelters are populated with unwanted dogs and cats, and strays roam our streets for a variety of reasons including financial hardship at home. Unwanted, neglected and abused animals are in personal danger and can pose a public health and safety threat by biting, spreading disease and damaging property. To make the greatest long-term impact for the benefit of animals and our community, KHS tackles the root causes of pet overpopulation, neglect and abuse and tracks results.
KHS’s ability to meet increased demands is severely limited by its capacity to receive and serve clients in its cramped, landlocked building, which is a renovated bridal shop on South Westnedge Avenue in Kalamazoo. The Kalamazoo Humane Society’s proposed Animal Care & Resource Center will serve as its new home and be the go-to destination for animal welfare needs throughout our region. The inviting, family-friendly Animal Care & Resource Center will reflect the expansion in size and access needed to meet current and anticipated demand in the following areas:
· Pet medical/surgical treatment (including high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries)
· Emergency pet food bank
· Humane education and training resources (with special emphasis on pet owners and youths)
· Volunteer opportunities
· Veterinary school intern opportunities and other partnerships
· Meeting, teaching, and training space
· Pet memorial areas and walking paths
Imagine fewer unwanted pets roaming our streets or populating our shelters. Imagine more citizens demonstrating compassion and respect for animals and one another. Imagine our community being recognized as one that shows concern for all living creatures. Our agency hopes to raise support for KHS so they can provide the best care and resources for animals and their owners. Join us!
