I Love our local shelter..The care, they put into the animals/pets. Is awesome. Can you Love as much as the workers do? All they want is to find homes for the pet's. To love them until a family steps in to share the love and take home a healthy pet. Sanilac County Humane Society works so hard...to find family who cares for the pets as SCHS would. ... I love them. For doing A job..some would find hard to do. Thank you for all you do for our community ,our pets our Families..

This shelter is amazing. They never give up on an animal. Even the ones that are so sweet until they turn on you and eat your toes (Autumn ). My teen children actually ask to go volunteer here. They always ask what dog we can foster. Best shelter around and best volunteers ❤️

My family has been involved with this shelter for an easy 14 years. We have served as volunteers and have served on the board. We have a cozy home full of rescued animals that fill our hearts and bless our home. This is more then an animal shelter, it’s a home away from their forever home filled with love and compassion.

I have been with this organization for many years now as a volunteer, former board member, volunteer coordinator. It has been a privilege to work with so many great people that have the same goals to help these animals get all the medical attention and find great new home and to help the community with low cost shot clinics and low cost cat program. Attached are former members that have found there forever home.

I have volunteered on occasion with my wife and have adopted multiple animals from this shelter. This group of volunteers are excellent to work with and always go above and beyond to find the perfect match for the animals. All the animals are great and the place is always clean.

I have been working with this shelter for so many years as an ACO. This group is amazing to work with and can always find a way to take in an animal from me that is at the end of its time. Saving 2 lives with every one that they take!

Sanilac County Humane Society changed my home. I went in looking to socialize a few kitties and fell in love. It wasn't 24 hours and I was back to adopt my new kittens. My once quiet home now filled with pounces, purrs and laughter. The people at there were friendly and helpful! I tell everyone to get their new kitties there!
