Our pooch came from Sanilac County Humane Society and our family volunteers with them occasionally. We've had a great experience with every interaction!

So proud to be associated with this wonderful No-Kill shelter, where the welfare of the cats and dogs always comes first, and it's dedicated staff and volunteers, who make it work. No matter how difficult the obstacles they encounter they always find a way.

You can't deny the passion and compassion every single volunteer, board member and supporter has for the animals at the Sanilac County Humane Society. All of the animals are cared for and loved immensely by all the helping hands at the shelter. The effort they are putting in to making the whole thumb region of Michigan a No-Kill area is remarkable. Being able to volunteer at SCHS has truly been a great experience! I look forward to seeing what this wonderful organization accomplishes in the future!

We just adopted our first rescue dog a few weeks ago! The shelter was clean, the pets well taken care of and the volunteer that assisted us with our new little lady was so helpful and kind! We will be adopting from here again in the future!
