Dogs and Puppies for Adoption

We’ve updated our pet adoption process due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic to provide a safe approach that limits exposure and risk for both adopters and our staff.

Adoptions at our Detroit and Westland locations are by appointment only and can be made by clicking the button below.

Schedule Appointment

Our adoption center in Howell is now accepting walk up appointments for pet adoptions with the following restrictions:

  • Please park and call the phone number listed on the designated signage when you arrive
  • Do not enter the shelter unless instructed to do so by Michigan Humane staff
  • All potential adopters must wear a mask when entering the shelter

No appointment is necessary to visit our offsite adoption centers at Petco, Petsmart, and Premier Pet Supply locations.  

The health and safety of our adopters and staff is our top priority. Our employees and volunteers are all wearing masks and keeping six feet apart while interacting with each other and the public. Adhering to the required policies of wearing masks and social distancing is required when visiting our shelters to protect our team who is interacting with the public.

Our team is working very hard every day to find our adoptable animals’ new homes. We thank you for your continued patience and support as we transition through these challenging times.


  • All visitors who enter any Michigan Humane location are required to wear a mask/face covering, observe social distancing and take a quick health screening.
  • We are unable to place any adoptable animals on hold.
  • At this time, we are only able to provide a meet-and-greet with one animal.
  • Interest in adoption has been extremely high lately and animals available at time appointment was made my not be available the day of your appointment. We do suggest you view our available adoptable animals the day of your appointment.
