Michigan Humane’s New Adoption Process

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

Our adoption centers in Detroit, Westland and Howell are accepting walk ups for pet adoptions with the following restrictions. Our Rochester Hills location is no longer having cat and dog adoptions. 

  • 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
